#define REFS_H
/*
+ * Resolve a reference, recursively following symbolic refererences.
+ *
+ * Store the referred-to object's name in sha1 and return the name of
+ * the non-symbolic reference that ultimately pointed at it. The
+ * return value, if not NULL, is a pointer into either a static buffer
+ * or the input ref.
+ *
+ * If the reference cannot be resolved to an object, the behavior
+ * depends on the RESOLVE_REF_READING flag:
+ *
+ * - If RESOLVE_REF_READING is set, return NULL.
+ *
+ * - If RESOLVE_REF_READING is not set, clear sha1 and return the name of
+ * the last reference name in the chain, which will either be a non-symbolic
+ * reference or an undefined reference. If this is a prelude to
+ * "writing" to the ref, the return value is the name of the ref
+ * that will actually be created or changed.
+ *
+ * If the RESOLVE_REF_NO_RECURSE flag is passed, only resolves one
+ * level of symbolic reference. The value stored in sha1 for a symbolic
+ * reference will always be null_sha1 in this case, and the return
+ * value is the reference that the symref refers to directly.
+ *
+ * If flags is non-NULL, set the value that it points to the
+ * combination of REF_ISPACKED (if the reference was found among the
+ * packed references), REF_ISSYMREF (if the initial reference was a
+ * symbolic reference), REF_BAD_NAME (if the reference name is ill
+ * formed --- see RESOLVE_REF_ALLOW_BAD_NAME below), and REF_ISBROKEN
+ * (if the ref is malformed or has a bad name). See refs.h for more detail
+ * on each flag.
+ *
+ * If ref is not a properly-formatted, normalized reference, return
+ * NULL. If more than MAXDEPTH recursive symbolic lookups are needed,
+ * give up and return NULL.
+ *
+ * RESOLVE_REF_ALLOW_BAD_NAME allows resolving refs even when their
+ * name is invalid according to git-check-ref-format(1). If the name
+ * is bad then the value stored in sha1 will be null_sha1 and the two
+ * flags REF_ISBROKEN and REF_BAD_NAME will be set.
+ *
+ * Even with RESOLVE_REF_ALLOW_BAD_NAME, names that escape the refs/
+ * directory and do not consist of all caps and underscores cannot be
+ * resolved. The function returns NULL for such ref names.
+ * Caps and underscores refers to the special refs, such as HEAD,
+ * FETCH_HEAD and friends, that all live outside of the refs/ directory.
