2010-05-20Rename the "crlf" attribute "text"Eyvind Bernhardsen
As discussed on the list, "crlf" is not an optimal name. Linus suggested "text", which is much better. Signed-off-by: Eyvind Bernhardsen <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2010-04-11attr: Expand macros immediately when encountered.Henrik Grubbström
When using macros it is otherwise hard to know whether an attribute set by the macro should override an already set attribute. Consider the following .gitattributes file: [attr]mybinary binary -ident * ident foo.bin mybinary bar.bin mybinary ident Without this patch both foo.bin and bar.bin will have the ident attribute set, which is probably not what the user expects. With this patch foo.bin will have an unset ident attribute, while bar.bin will have it set. Signed-off-by: Henrik Grubbström <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2010-04-11attr: Allow multiple changes to an attribute on the same line.Henrik Grubbström
When using macros it isn't inconceivable to have an attribute being set by a macro, and then being reset explicitly. Signed-off-by: Henrik Grubbström <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

When debug_set() was called during macro expansion, it received a pointer to a struct git_attr rather than a string. Signed-off-by: Henrik Grubbström <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2010-01-17git_attr(): fix function signatureJunio C Hamano
The function took (name, namelen) as its arguments, but all the public callers wanted to pass a full string. Demote the counted-string interface to an internal API status, and allow public callers to just pass the string to the function. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2009-06-18Fix big left-shifts of unsigned charLinus Torvalds
Shifting 'unsigned char' or 'unsigned short' left can result in sign extension errors, since the C integer promotion rules means that the unsigned char/short will get implicitly promoted to a signed 'int' due to the shift (or due to other operations). This normally doesn't matter, but if you shift things up sufficiently, it will now set the sign bit in 'int', and a subsequent cast to a bigger type (eg 'long' or 'unsigned long') will now sign-extend the value despite the original expression being unsigned. One example of this would be something like unsigned long size; unsigned char c; size += c << 24; where despite all the variables being unsigned, 'c << 24' ends up being a signed entity, and will get sign-extended when then doing the addition in an 'unsigned long' type. Since git uses 'unsigned char' pointers extensively, we actually have this bug in a couple of places. I may have missed some, but this is the result of looking at git grep '[^0-9 ][ ]*<<[ ][a-z]' -- '*.c' '*.h' git grep '<<[ ]*24' which catches at least the common byte cases (shifting variables by a variable amount, and shifting by 24 bits). I also grepped for just 'unsigned char' variables in general, and converted the ones that most obviously ended up getting implicitly cast immediately anyway (eg hash_name(), encode_85()). In addition to just avoiding 'unsigned char', this patch also tries to use a common idiom for the delta header size thing. We had three different variations on it: "& 0x7fUL" in one place (getting the sign extension right), and "& ~0x80" and "& 0x7f" in two other places (not getting it right). Apart from making them all just avoid using "unsigned char" at all, I also unified them to then use a simple "& 0x7f". I considered making a sparse extension which warns about doing implicit casts from unsigned types to signed types, but it gets rather complex very quickly, so this is just a hack.

2009-04-18attr: add GIT_ATTR_INDEX "direction"Nguyễn Thái Ngọc Duy

2009-03-14Read attributes from the index that is being checked outJunio C Hamano
Traditionally we used .gitattributes file from the work tree if exists, and otherwise read from the index as a fallback. When switching to a branch that has an updated .gitattributes file, and entries in it give different attributes to other paths being checked out, we should instead read from the .gitattributes in the index. This breaks a use case of fixing incorrect entries in the .gitattributes in the work tree (without adding it to the index) and checking other paths out, though. $ edit .gitattributes ;# mark foo.dat as binary $ rm foo.dat $ git checkout foo.dat Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2008-06-09Ignore .gitattributes in bare repositoriesRené Scharfe
Attributes can be specified at three different places: the internal table of default values, the file $GIT_DIR/info/attributes and files named .gitattributes in the work tree. Since bare repositories don't have a work tree, git should ignore any .gitattributes files there. This patch makes git do that, so the only way left for a user to specify attributes in a bare repository is the file info/attributes (in addition to changing the defaults and recompiling). In addition, git-check-attr is now allowed to run without a work tree. Like any user of the code in attr.c, it ignores the .gitattributes files when run in a bare repository. It can still read from info/attributes. Signed-off-by: Rene Scharfe <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2007-08-15attr.c: read .gitattributes from index as well.Junio C Hamano
This makes .gitattributes files to be read from the index when they are not checked out to the work tree. This is in line with the way we always allowed low-level tools to operate in sparsely checked out work tree in a reasonable way. It swaps the order of new file creation and converting the blob to work tree representation; otherwise when we are in the middle of checking out .gitattributes we would notice an empty but unwritten .gitattributes file in the work tree and will ignore the copy in the index.

2007-08-15attr.c: refactoringJunio C Hamano
This splits out a common routine that parses a single line of attribute file and adds it to the attr_stack. It should not change any behaviour, other than attrs array in the attr_stack structure is now grown with alloc_nr() macro, instead of one by one, which relied on xrealloc() to give enough slack to be efficient enough.

2007-04-18Fix funny types used in attribute value representationJunio C Hamano
It was bothering me a lot that I abused small integer values casted to (void *) to represent non string values in gitattributes. This corrects it by making the type of attribute values (const char *), and using the address of a few statically allocated character buffer to denote true/false. Unset attributes are represented as having NULLs as their values. Added in-header documentation to explain how git_checkattr() routine should be called. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2007-04-17Allow more than true/false to attributes.Junio C Hamano
This allows you to define three values (and possibly more) to each attribute: true, false, and unset. Typically the handlers that notice and act on attribute values treat "unset" attribute to mean "do your default thing" (e.g. crlf that is unset would trigger "guess from contents"), so being able to override a setting to an unset state is actually useful. - If you want to set the attribute value to true, have an entry in .gitattributes file that mentions the attribute name; e.g. *.o binary - If you want to set the attribute value explicitly to false, use '-'; e.g. *.a -diff - If you want to make the attribute value _unset_, perhaps to override an earlier entry, use '!'; e.g. *.a -diff c.i.a !diff This also allows string values to attributes, with the natural syntax: attrname=attrvalue but you cannot use it, as nobody takes notice and acts on it yet.

2007-04-15attribute macro supportJunio C Hamano
This adds "attribute macros" (for lack of better name). So far, we have low-level attributes such as crlf and diff, which are defined in operational terms --- setting or unsetting them on a particular path directly affects what is done to the path. For example, in order to decline diffs or crlf conversions on a binary blob, no diffs on PostScript files, and treat all other files normally, you would have something like these: * diff crlf *.ps !diff proprietary.o !diff !crlf That is fine as the operation goes, but gets unwieldy rather rapidly, when we start adding more low-level attributes that are defined in operational terms. A near-term example of such an attribute would be 'merge-3way' which would control if git should attempt the usual 3-way file-level merge internally, or leave merging to a specialized external program of user's choice. When it is added, we do _not_ want to force the users to update the above to: * diff crlf merge-3way *.ps !diff proprietary.o !diff !crlf !merge-3way The way this patch solves this issue is to realize that the attributes the user is assigning to paths are not defined in terms of operations but in terms of what they are. All of the three low-level attributes usually make sense for most of the files that sane SCM users have git operate on (these files are typically called "text'). Only a few cases, such as binary blob, need exception to decline the "usual treatment given to text files" -- and people mark them as "binary". So this allows the $GIT_DIR/info/alternates and .gitattributes at the toplevel of the project to also specify attributes that assigns other attributes. The syntax is '[attr]' followed by an attribute name followed by a list of attribute names: [attr] binary !diff !crlf !merge-3way When "binary" attribute is set to a path, if the path has not got diff/crlf/merge-3way attribute set or unset by other rules, this rule unsets the three low-level attributes. It is expected that the user level .gitattributes will be expressed mostly in terms of attributes based on what the files are, and the above sample would become like this: (built-in attribute configuration) [attr] binary !diff !crlf !merge-3way * diff crlf merge-3way (project specific .gitattributes) proprietary.o binary (user preference $GIT_DIR/info/attributes) *.ps !diff There are a few caveats. * As described above, you can define these macros only in $GIT_DIR/info/attributes and toplevel .gitattributes. * There is no attempt to detect circular definition of macro attributes, and definitions are evaluated from bottom to top as usual to fill in other attributes that have not yet got values. The following would work as expected: [attr] text diff crlf [attr] ps text !diff *.ps ps while this would most likely not (I haven't tried): [attr] ps text !diff [attr] text diff crlf *.ps ps * When a macro says "[attr] A B !C", saying that a path does not have attribute A does not let you tell anything about attributes B or C. That is, given this: [attr] text diff crlf [attr] ps text !diff *.txt !ps path hello.txt, which would match "*.txt" pattern, would have "ps" attribute set to zero, but that does not make text attribute of hello.txt set to false (nor diff attribute set to true).

2007-04-14Teach 'diff' about 'diff' attribute.Junio C Hamano

2007-04-14Define 'crlf' attribute.Junio C Hamano
This defines the semantics of 'crlf' attribute as an example. When a path has this attribute unset (i.e. '!crlf'), autocrlf line-end conversion is not applied. Eventually we would want to let users to build a pipeline of processing to munge blob data to filesystem format (and in the other direction) based on combination of attributes, and at that point the mechanism in convert_to_{git,working_tree}() that looks at 'crlf' attribute needs to be enhanced. Perhaps the existing 'crlf' would become the first step in the input chain, and the last step in the output chain. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2007-04-14Add basic infrastructure to assign attributes to pathsJunio C Hamano
This adds the basic infrastructure to assign attributes to paths, in a way similar to what the exclusion mechanism does based on $GIT_DIR/info/exclude and .gitignore files. An attribute is just a simple string that does not contain any whitespace. They can be specified in $GIT_DIR/info/attributes file, and .gitattributes file in each directory. Each line in these files defines a pattern matching rule. Similar to the exclusion mechanism, a later match overrides an earlier match in the same file, and entries from .gitattributes file in the same directory takes precedence over the ones from parent directories. Lines in $GIT_DIR/info/attributes file are used as the lowest precedence default rules. A line is either a comment (an empty line, or a line that begins with a '#'), or a rule, which is a whitespace separated list of tokens. The first token on the line is a shell glob pattern. The rest are names of attributes, each of which can optionally be prefixed with '!'. Such a line means "if a path matches this glob, this attribute is set (or unset -- if the attribute name is prefixed with '!'). For glob matching, the same "if the pattern does not have a slash in it, the basename of the path is matched with fnmatch(3) against the pattern, otherwise, the path is matched with the pattern with FNM_PATHNAME" rule as the exclusion mechanism is used. This does not define what an attribute means. Tying an attribute to various effects it has on git operation for paths that have it will be specified separately. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
