2017-06-24Merge branch 'ab/free-and-null'Junio C Hamano
A common pattern to free a piece of memory and assign NULL to the pointer that used to point at it has been replaced with a new FREE_AND_NULL() macro. * ab/free-and-null: *.[ch] refactoring: make use of the FREE_AND_NULL() macro coccinelle: make use of the "expression" FREE_AND_NULL() rule coccinelle: add a rule to make "expression" code use FREE_AND_NULL() coccinelle: make use of the "type" FREE_AND_NULL() rule coccinelle: add a rule to make "type" code use FREE_AND_NULL() git-compat-util: add a FREE_AND_NULL() wrapper around free(ptr); ptr = NULL
2017-06-16coccinelle: make use of the "type" FREE_AND_NULL() ruleÆvar Arnfjörð Bjarmason
Apply the result of the just-added coccinelle rule. This manually excludes a few occurrences, mostly things that resulted in many FREE_AND_NULL() on one line, that'll be manually fixed in a subsequent change. Signed-off-by: Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

Stop including config.h by default in cache.h. Instead only include config.h in those files which require use of the config system. Signed-off-by: Brandon Williams <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2017-06-15alias: use the early config machinery to expand aliasesJohannes Schindelin
Instead of discovering the .git/ directory, reading the config and then trying to painstakingly reset all the global state if we did not find a matching alias, let's use the early config machinery instead. It may look like unnecessary work to discover the .git/ directory in the early config machinery and then call setup_git_directory_gently() in the case of a shell alias, repeating the very same discovery *again*. However, we have to do this as the early config machinery takes pains *not* to touch any global state, while shell aliases expect a possibly changed working directory and at least the GIT_PREFIX and GIT_DIR variables to be set. This change also fixes a known issue where Git tried to read the pager config from an incorrect path in a subdirectory of a Git worktree if an alias expanded to a shell command.

2016-02-22convert trivial cases to ALLOC_ARRAYJeff King
Each of these cases can be converted to use ALLOC_ARRAY or REALLOC_ARRAY, which has two advantages: 1. It automatically checks the array-size multiplication for overflow. 2. It always uses sizeof(*array) for the element-size, so that it can never go out of sync with the declared type of the array. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2015-08-24config: silence warnings for command names with invalid keysJeff King
When we are running the git command "foo", we may have to look up the config keys "" and "". These config schemes are mis-designed, as the command names can be anything, but the config syntax has some restrictions. For example: $ git foo_bar error: invalid key: pager.foo_bar error: invalid key: alias.foo_bar git: 'foo_bar' is not a git command. See 'git --help'. You cannot name an alias with an underscore. And if you have an external command with one, you cannot configure its pager. In the long run, we may develop a different config scheme for these features. But in the near term (and because we'll need to support the existing scheme indefinitely), we should at least squelch the error messages shown above. These errors come from git_config_parse_key. Ideally we would pass a "quiet" flag to the config machinery, but there are many layers between the pager code and the key parsing. Passing a flag through all of those would be an invasive change. Instead, let's provide a config function to report on whether a key is syntactically valid, and have the pager and alias code skip lookup for bogus keys. We can build this easily around the existing git_config_parse_key, with two minor modifications: 1. We now handle a NULL store_key, to validate but not write out the normalized key. 2. We accept a "quiet" flag to avoid writing to stderr. This doesn't need to be a full-blown public "flags" field, because we can make the existing implementation a static helper function, keeping the mess contained inside config.c.

2014-08-07alias.c: replace `git_config()` with `git_config_get_string()`Tanay Abhra
Use `git_config_get_string()` instead of `git_config()` to take advantage of the config-set API which provides a cleaner control flow. Signed-off-by: Tanay Abhra <> Reviewed-by: Matthieu Moy <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2014-06-20use skip_prefix to avoid magic numbersJeff King
It's a common idiom to match a prefix and then skip past it with a magic number, like: if (starts_with(foo, "bar")) foo += 3; This is easy to get wrong, since you have to count the prefix string yourself, and there's no compiler check if the string changes. We can use skip_prefix to avoid the magic numbers here. Note that some of these conversions could be much shorter. For example: if (starts_with(arg, "--foo=")) { bar = arg + 6; continue; } could become: if (skip_prefix(arg, "--foo=", &bar)) continue; However, I have left it as: if (skip_prefix(arg, "--foo=", &v)) { bar = v; continue; } to visually match nearby cases which need to actually process the string. Like: if (skip_prefix(arg, "--foo=", &v)) { bar = atoi(v); continue; } Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2013-12-05replace {pre,suf}fixcmp() with {starts,ends}_with()Christian Couder
Leaving only the function definitions and declarations so that any new topic in flight can still make use of the old functions, replace existing uses of the prefixcmp() and suffixcmp() with new API functions. The change can be recreated by mechanically applying this: $ git grep -l -e prefixcmp -e suffixcmp -- \*.c | grep -v strbuf\\.c | xargs perl -pi -e ' s|!prefixcmp\(|starts_with\(|g; s|prefixcmp\(|!starts_with\(|g; s|!suffixcmp\(|ends_with\(|g; s|suffixcmp\(|!ends_with\(|g; ' on the result of preparatory changes in this series.

2010-08-11split_cmdline: Allow caller to access error stringGreg Brockman
This allows the caller to add its own error message to that returned by split_cmdline. Thus error output following a failed split_cmdline can be of the form fatal: Bad alias.test string: cmdline ends with \ rather than error: cmdline ends with \ fatal: Bad alias.test string Signed-off-by: Greg Brockman <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

* jk/maint-1.6.0-trace-argv: fix GIT_TRACE segfault with shell-quoted aliases Conflicts: alias.c
2009-05-09fix GIT_TRACE segfault with shell-quoted aliasesJeff King
The alias argv comes from the split_cmdline function, which splits the config text for the alias into an array of strings. It returns the number of elements in the array, but does not actually put a NULL at the end of the array. Later, the trace function tries to print this argv and assumes that it has the trailing NULL. The split_cmdline function is probably at fault, since argv lists almost always end with a NULL signal. This patch adds one, in addition to the returned count; this doesn't hurt the other callers at all, since they were presumably using the count already (and will never look at the NULL). While we're there and using ALLOC_GROW, let's clean up the other manual grow. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2008-07-01Move split_cmdline() to alias.cMiklos Vajna
split_cmdline() is currently used for aliases only, but later it can be useful for other builtins as well. Move it to alias.c for now, indicating that originally it's for aliases, but we'll have it in libgit this way. Signed-off-by: Miklos Vajna <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2008-05-14Provide git_config with a callback-data parameterJohannes Schindelin
git_config() only had a function parameter, but no callback data parameter. This assumes that all callback functions only modify global variables. With this patch, every callback gets a void * parameter, and it is hoped that this will help the libification effort. Signed-off-by: Johannes Schindelin <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2008-02-25make alias lookup a public, procedural functionJeff King
This converts git_config_alias to the public alias_lookup function. Because of the nature of our config parser, we still have to rely on setting static data. However, that interface is wrapped so that you can just say value = alias_lookup(key); Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
