Fix error handling for nonexistent names
When passing in a pathname pattern without the "--" separator on the command line, we verify that the pathnames in question exist. However, there were two bugs in that verification: - git-rev-parse would only check the first pathname, and silently allow any invalid subsequent pathname, whether it existed or not (which defeats the purpose of the check, and is also inconsistent with what git-rev-list actually does) - git-rev-list (and "git log" etc) would check each filename, but if the check failed, it would print the error using the first one, i.e.: [torvalds@g5 git]$ git log Makefile bad-file fatal: 'Makefile': No such file or directory instead of saying that it's 'bad-file' that doesn't exist. This fixes both bugs. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
