2022-01-13checkout-index: add --ignore-skip-worktree-bits optionVictoria Dye
Update `checkout-index` to no longer refresh files that have the `skip-worktree` bit set, exiting with an error if `skip-worktree` filenames are directly provided to `checkout-index`. The newly-added `--ignore-skip-worktree-bits` option provides a mechanism to replicate the old behavior, checking out *all* files specified (even those with `skip-worktree` enabled). The ability to toggle whether files should be checked-out based on `skip-worktree` already exists in `git checkout` and `git restore` (both of which have an `--ignore-skip-worktree-bits` option). The change to, by default, ignore `skip-worktree` files is especially helpful for sparse-checkout; it prevents inadvertent creation of files outside the sparse definition on disk and eliminates the need to expand a sparse index when using the `--all` option. Internal usage of `checkout-index` in `git stash` and `git filter-branch` do not make explicit use of files with `skip-worktree` enabled, so `--ignore-skip-worktree-bits` is not added to them.

2011-03-11doc: drop author/documentation sections from most pagesJeff King
The point of these sections is generally to: 1. Give credit where it is due. 2. Give the reader an idea of where to ask questions or file bug reports. But they don't do a good job of either case. For (1), they are out of date and incomplete. A much more accurate answer can be gotten through shortlog or blame. For (2), the correct contact point is generally git@vger, and even if you wanted to cc the contact point, the out-of-date and incomplete fields mean you're likely sending to somebody useless. So let's drop the fields entirely from all manpages except git(1) itself. We already point people to the mailing list for bug reports there, and we can update the Authors section to give credit to the major contributors and point to shortlog and blame for more information. Each page has a "This is part of git" footer, so people can follow that to the main git manpage.

2010-08-20Documentation: remove backslashes in manpage synopsesJonathan Nieder
For some reason, various manual pages have an asterisk escaped with \ in the synopsis. Since there is no other asterisk to pair it with, Asciidoc does not consider this asterisk escapable, so it passes the backslash through. Each page either uses [verse] or has only one asterisk, so it is safe to drop the backslashes (checked with asciidoc 8.5.2).

2010-01-10Documentation: spell 'git cmd' without dash throughoutThomas Rast
The documentation was quite inconsistent when spelling 'git cmd' if it only refers to the program, not to some specific invocation syntax: both 'git-cmd' and 'git cmd' spellings exist. The current trend goes towards dashless forms, and there is precedent in 647ac70 (git-svn.txt: stop using dash-form of commands., 2009-07-07) to actively eliminate the dashed variants. Replace 'git-cmd' with 'git cmd' throughout, except where git-shell, git-cvsserver, git-upload-pack, git-receive-pack, and git-upload-archive are concerned, because those really live in the $PATH.
2008-07-05manpages: italicize git command names (which were in teletype font)Jonathan Nieder
The names of git commands are not meant to be entered at the commandline; they are just names. So we render them in italics, as is usual for command names in manpages. Using doit () { perl -e 'for (<>) { s/\`(git-[^\`.]*)\`/'\''\1'\''/g; print }' } for i in git*.txt config.txt diff*.txt blame*.txt fetch*.txt i18n.txt \ merge*.txt pretty*.txt pull*.txt rev*.txt urls*.txt do doit <"$i" >"$i+" && mv "$i+" "$i" done git diff .

2008-07-02Documentation formatting and cleanupJonathan Nieder
Following what appears to be the predominant style, format names of commands and commandlines both as `teletype text`. While we're at it, add articles ("a" and "the") in some places, italicize the name of the command in the manual page synopsis line, and add a comma or two where it seems appropriate.

2008-07-02Documentation: be consistent about "git-" versus "git "Jonathan Nieder
Since the git-* commands are not installed in $(bindir), using "git-command <parameters>" in examples in the documentation is not a good idea. On the other hand, it is nice to be able to refer to each command using one hyphenated word. (There is no escaping it, anyway: man page names cannot have spaces in them.) This patch retains the dash in naming an operation, command, program, process, or action. Complete command lines that can be entered at a shell (i.e., without options omitted) are made to use the dashless form. The changes consist only of replacing some spaces with hyphens and vice versa. After a "s/ /-/g", the unpatched and patched versions are identical. Signed-off-by: Jonathan Nieder <jrnieder@uchicago.edu> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2008-06-08Docs: Use "-l::\n--long\n" format in OPTIONS sectionsStephan Beyer
The OPTIONS section of a documentation file contains a list of the options a git command accepts. Currently there are several variants to describe the case that different options (almost) do the same in the OPTIONS section. Some are: -f, --foo:: -f|--foo:: -f | --foo:: But AsciiDoc has the special form: -f:: --foo:: This patch applies this form to the documentation of the whole git suite, and removes useless em-dash prevention, so \--foo becomes --foo.

This uses "git-apply --whitespace=strip" to fix whitespace errors that have crept in to our source files over time.

2006-03-05Add --temp and --stage=all options to checkout-index.Shawn Pearce
Sometimes it is convient for a Porcelain to be able to checkout all unmerged files in all stages so that an external merge tool can be executed by the Porcelain or the end-user. Using git-unpack-file on each stage individually incurs a rather high penalty due to the need to fork for each file version obtained. git-checkout-index -a --stage=all will now do the same thing, but faster.

2006-03-01Teach git-checkout-index to read filenames from stdin.Shawn Pearce
Since git-checkout-index is often used from scripts which may have a stream of filenames they wish to checkout it is more convenient to use --stdin than xargs. On platforms where fork performance is currently sub-optimal and the length of a command line is limited (*cough* Cygwin *cough*) running a single git-checkout-index process for a large number of files beats spawning it multiple times from xargs. File names are still accepted on the command line if --stdin is not supplied. Nothing is performed if no files are supplied on the command line or by stdin. Signed-off-by: Shawn O.

2005-09-08Big tool rename.Junio C Hamano
As promised, this is the "big tool rename" patch. The primary differences since 0.99.6 are: (1) git-*-script are no more. The commands installed do not have any such suffix so users do not have to remember if something is implemented as a shell script or not. (2) Many command names with 'cache' in them are renamed with 'index' if that is what they mean. There are backward compatibility symblic links so that you and Porcelains can keep using the old names, but the backward compatibility support is expected to be removed in the near future.
