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.
2009-10-20Teach "-m <msg>" and "-F <file>" to "git notes edit"Johan Herland
The "-m" and "-F" options are already the established method (in both git-commit and git-tag) to specify a commit/tag message without invoking the editor. This patch teaches "git notes edit" to respect the same options for specifying a notes message without invoking the editor. Multiple "-m" and/or "-F" options are concatenated as separate paragraphs. The patch also updates the "git notes" documentation and adds selftests for the new functionality. Unfortunately, the added selftests include a couple of lines with trailing whitespace (without these the test will fail). This may cause git to warn about "whitespace errors". This patch has been improved by the following contributions: - Thomas Rast: fix trailing whitespace in t3301 Signed-off-by: Johan Herland <johan@herland.net> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
