2008-01-18Include rev-list options in git-log manpage.Miklos Vajna
Replace the "This manual page describes only the most frequently used options." text with the list of rev-list options in git-log manpage. (The git-diff-tree options are already included.) Move these options to a separate file and include it from both git-rev-list.txt and git-log.txt. Signed-off-by: Miklos Vajna <vmiklos@frugalware.org> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2008-01-07Documentation: rename gitlink macro to linkgitDan McGee
Between AsciiDoc 8.2.2 and 8.2.3, the following change was made to the stock Asciidoc configuration: @@ -149,7 +153,10 @@ # Inline macros. # Backslash prefix required for escape processing. # (?s) re flag for line spanning. -(?su)[\\]?(?P<name>\w(\w|-)*?):(?P<target>\S*?)(\[(?P<attrlist>.*?)\])= + +# Explicit so they can be nested. +(?su)[\\]?(?P<name>(http|https|ftp|file|mailto|callto|image|link)):(?P<target>\S*?)(\[(?P<attrlist>.*?)\])= + # Anchor: [[[id]]]. Bibliographic anchor. (?su)[\\]?\[\[\[(?P<attrlist>[\w][\w-]*?)\]\]\]=anchor3 # Anchor: [[id,xreflabel]] This default regex now matches explicit values, and unfortunately in this case gitlink was being matched by just 'link', causing the wrong inline macro template to be applied. By renaming the macro, we can avoid being matched by the wrong regex. Signed-off-by: Dan McGee <dpmcgee@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>

2007-08-20Don't allow combination of -g and --reverse as it doesn't workShawn O. Pearce
The --walk-reflogs logic and the --reverse logic are completely incompatible with one another. Attempting to use both at the same time leads to confusing results that sometimes violates the user's formatting options or ignores the user's request to see the reflog message and timestamp. Unfortunately the implementation of both of these features is glued onto the side of the revision walking machinary in such a way that they are probably not going to be easy to make them compatible with each other. Rather than offering the user confusing results we are better off bailing out with an error message until such a time as the implementations can be refactored to be compatible.

2007-08-14Add --log-size to git log to print message sizeMarco Costalba
With this option git-log prints log message size just before the corresponding message. Porcelain tools could use this to speedup parsing of git-log output. Note that size refers to log message only. If also patch content is shown its size is not included. In case it is not possible to know the size upfront size value is set to zero.

2007-07-12Documentation for git-log --followSteven Walter
After vainly searching the Documentation for how to follow renames, I finally broke down and grepped the source. It would appear that Linus didn't add write and docs for this feature when he wrote it. The following patch rectifies that, hopefully sparing future users from resorting to the source code.

2007-06-07War on whitespaceJunio C Hamano
This uses "git-apply --whitespace=strip" to fix whitespace errors that have crept in to our source files over time. There are a few files that need to have trailing whitespaces (most notably, test vectors). The results still passes the test, and build result in Documentation/ area is unchanged.

2007-05-14Documentation: Split description of pretty formats of commit logJakub Narebski
Split description of pretty formats into list of pretty options (--pretty and --encoding) in new file Documentation/pretty-options.txt and description of formats itself as a separate "PRETTY FORMATS" section in pretty-formats.txt While at it correct formatting a bit, to be better laid out in the resulting manpages: git-rev-list(1), git-show(1), git-log(1) and git-diff-tree(1). Those manpages now include pretty options in the same place as it was before, and description of formats just after all options.

2006-11-23Move --pretty options into Documentation/pretty-formats.txtChris Riddoch
Asciidoc-include it into the manuals for programs that use the --pretty command-line option, for consistency among the docs. This describes all the pretty-formats currently listed in the cmit_fmt enum in commit.h, and also briefly describes the presence and format of the 'Merge: ' line in some pretty formats. There's a hedge that limiting your view of history can affect what goes in the Merge: line, and that --abbrev/--no-abbrev do nothing to the 'raw' format.

2005-10-31Add examples for git-log documentation and others.Linus Torvalds
I don't think people really follow the links or think very abstractly at all in the first place. So I was thinking more of some explicit examples. I actually think every command should have an example in the man-page, and hey, here's a patch to start things off. Of course, I'm not exactly "Mr Documentation", and I don't know that this is the prettiest way to do this, but I checked that the resulting html and man-page seems at least reasonable. And hey, if the examples look like each other, that's just because I'm also not "Mr Imagination". Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>

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.
