git-grep: clarification on parameters.
We forgot to make sure that there is no more than one pattern parameter. Also when looking for files in a directory called '--others', it passed that path limiter without preceding the end-of-options marker '--' to underlying git-ls-files, which misunderstood it as one of its options instead. $ git grep --others -e Meta/Make Meta $ git grep -o -e Meta/Make Meta $ git grep -o Meta/Make Meta look for a string "Meta/Make" from untracked files in Meta/ directory. $ git grep Meta/Make --others looks for the same string from tracked files in ./--others directory. On the other hand, $ git grep -e Meta/Make --others does not have a freestanding pattern, so everybody is parameter and there is no path specifier. It looks for the string in all the untracked files without any path limiter. [jc: updated with usability enhancements and documentation cleanups from Sean.] Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
