2007-04-22Cleanup variables in cat-fileShawn O. Pearce
I want to add new command line options to cat-file, but to do that we need to change how we handle argv[] first. This is a simple cleanup that assigns names to the two arguments we currently care about. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2007-02-27convert object type handling from a string to a numberNicolas Pitre
We currently have two parallel notation for dealing with object types in the code: a string and a numerical value. One of them is obviously redundent, and the most used one requires more stack space and a bunch of strcmp() all over the place. This is an initial step for the removal of the version using a char array found in object reading code paths. The patch is unfortunately large but there is no sane way to split it in smaller parts without breaking the system. Signed-off-by: Nicolas Pitre <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2006-08-27Relative timestamps in git logLinus Torvalds
I noticed that I was looking at the kernel gitweb output at some point rather than just do "git log", simply because I liked seeing the simplified date-format, ie the "5 days ago" rather than a full date. This adds infrastructure to do that for "git log" too. It does NOT add the actual flag to enable it, though, so right now this patch is a no-op, but it should now be easy to add a command line flag (and possibly a config file option) to just turn on the "relative" date format. The exact cut-off points when it switches from days to weeks etc are totally arbitrary, but are picked somewhat to avoid the "1 weeks ago" thing (by making it show "10 days ago" rather than "1 week", or "70 minutes ago" rather than "1 hour ago"). [jc: with minor fix and tweak around "month" and "week" area.] Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2006-08-22Add write_or_die(), a helper functionRene Scharfe
The little helper write_or_die() won't come back with bad news about full disks or broken pipes. It either succeeds or terminates the program, making additional error handling unnecessary. This patch adds the new function and uses it to replace two similar ones (the one in tar-tree originally has been copied from cat-file btw.). I chose to add the fd parameter which both lacked to make write_or_die() just as flexible as write() and thus suitable for lib-ification. There is a regression: error messages emitted by this function don't show the program name, while the replaced two functions did. That's acceptable, I think; a lot of other functions do the same.

2006-07-29Call setup_git_directory() much earlierLinus Torvalds
This changes the calling convention of built-in commands and passes the "prefix" (i.e. pathname of $PWD relative to the project root level) down to them. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
