2007-09-21Full rework of quote_c_style and write_name_quoted.Pierre Habouzit
* quote_c_style works on a strbuf instead of a wild buffer. * quote_c_style is now clever enough to not add double quotes if not needed. * write_name_quoted inherits those advantages, but also take a different set of arguments. Now instead of asking for quotes or not, you pass a "terminator". If it's \0 then we assume you don't want to escape, else C escaping is performed. In any case, the terminator is also appended to the stream. It also no longer takes the prefix/prefix_len arguments, as it's seldomly used, and makes some optimizations harder. * write_name_quotedpfx is created to work like write_name_quoted and take the prefix/prefix_len arguments. Thanks to those API changes, diff.c has somehow lost weight, thanks to the removal of functions that were wrappers around the old write_name_quoted trying to give it a semantics like the new one, but performing a lot of allocations for this goal. Now we always write directly to the stream, no intermediate allocation is performed. As a side effect of the refactor in builtin-apply.c, the length of the bar graphs in diffstats are not affected anymore by the fact that the path was clipped. Signed-off-by: Pierre Habouzit <>
2007-08-15Add read_cache to builtin-check-attrBrian Downing
We can now read .gitattributes files out of the index, but the index must be loaded for this to work. Signed-off-by: Brian Downing <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
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.

2007-04-15Change attribute negation marker from '!' to '-'.Junio C Hamano
At the same time, we do not want to allow arbitrary strings for attribute names, as we are likely to want to extend the syntax later. Allow only alnum, dash, underscore and dot for now. 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 <>
