tests: use 'test_must_be_empty' instead of '! test -s'
Using 'test_must_be_empty' is preferable to '! test -s', because it gives a helpful error message if the given file is unexpectedly not empty, while the latter remains completely silent. Furthermore, it also catches cases when the given file unexpectedly does not exist at all. This patch was basically created by: sed -i -e 's/! test -s/test_must_be_empty/' t[0-9]*.sh with the following notable exceptions: - The '! test -s' check in '.gitmodules ignore=dirty suppresses submodules with untracked content' in '' is left as-is, because it's bogus and, therefore, it's subject of a dedicated patch. - The '! test -s' checks in '' and '' are immediately preceeded by a 'test -f' to ensure that the files exist in the first place. 'test_must_be_empty' ensures that as well, so those 'test -f' commands are removed as well. Signed-off-by: SZEDER Gábor <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
