2005-08-06[PATCH] Assorted documentation patchesJohannes Schindelin
[jc: Johannes spent time and effort to see how consistent our use of terminilogy is, and as a byproduct made these corrections not related to the terminology unification. I really appreciate it.] Signed-off-by: Johannes Schindelin <Johannes.Schindelin@gmx.de> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
2005-05-29[PATCH] Rewrite ls-tree to behave more like "/bin/ls -a"Junio C Hamano
This is a complete rewrite of ls-tree to make it behave more like what "/bin/ls -a" does in the current working directory. Namely, the changes are: - Unlike the old ls-tree behaviour that used paths arguments to restrict output (not that it worked as intended---as pointed out in the mailing list discussion, it was quite incoherent), this rewrite uses paths arguments to specify what to show. - Without arguments, it implicitly uses the root level as its sole argument ("/bin/ls -a" behaves as if "." is given without argument). - Without -r (recursive) flag, it shows the named blob (either file or symlink), or the named tree and its immediate children. - With -r flag, it shows the named path, and recursively descends into it if it is a tree. - With -d flag, it shows the named path and does not show its children even if the path is a tree, nor descends into it recursively. This is still request-for-comments patch. There is no mailing list consensus that this proposed new behaviour is a good one. The patch to t/t3100-ls-tree-restrict.sh illustrates user-visible behaviour changes. Namely: * "git-ls-tree $tree path1 path0" lists path1 first and then path0. It used to use paths as an output restrictor and showed output in cache entry order (i.e. path0 first and then path1) regardless of the order of paths arguments. * "git-ls-tree $tree path2" lists path2 and its immediate children but having explicit paths argument does not imply recursive behaviour anymore, hence paths/baz is shown but not paths/baz/b.

2005-05-26[PATCH] ls-tree matching multiple pathsJason McMullan
Enhance git-ls-tree to allow optional 'match paths' that restricts the output of git-ls-tree. This is useful to retrieve a single file's SHA1 out of a tree without creating an index.
