Even though "git hash-objects", which is a tool to take an on-filesystem data stream and put it into the Git object store, allowed to perform the "outside-world-to-Git" conversions (e.g. end-of-line conversions and application of the clean-filter), and it had the feature on by default from very early days, its reverse operation "git cat-file", which takes an object from the Git object store and externalize for the consumption by the outside world, lacked an equivalent mechanism to run the "Git-to-outside-world" conversion.

2016-09-11cat-file --textconv/--filters: allow specifying the path separatelyJohannes Schindelin
There are circumstances when it is relatively easy to figure out the object name for a given path, but not the name of the containing tree. For example, when looking at a diff generated by Git, the object names are recorded, but not the revision. As a matter of fact, the revisions from which the diff was generated may not even exist locally. In such a case, the user would have to generate a fake revision just to be able to use --textconv or --filters. Let's simplify this dramatically, because we do not really need that revision at all: all we care about is that we know the path. In the scenario described above, we do know the path, and we just want to specify it separately from the object name.

2016-08-11provide an initializer for "struct object_info"Jeff King
An all-zero initializer is fine for this struct, but because the first element is a pointer, call sites need to know to use "NULL" instead of "0". Otherwise some static checkers like "sparse" will complain; see d099b71 (Fix some sparse warnings, 2013-07-18) for example. So let's provide an initializer to make this easier to get right. But let's also comment that memset() to zero is explicitly OK[1]. One of the callers embeds object_info in another struct which is initialized via memset (expand_data in builtin/cat-file.c). Since our subset of C doesn't allow assignment from a compound literal, handling this in any other way is awkward, so we'd like to keep the ability to initialize by memset(). By documenting this property, it should make anybody who wants to change the initializer think twice before doing so. There's one other caller of interest. In parse_sha1_header(), we did not initialize the struct fully in the first place. This turned out not to be a bug because the sub-function it calls does not look at any other fields except the ones we did initialize. But that assumption might not hold in the future, so it's a dangerous construct. This patch switches it to initializing the whole struct, which protects us against unexpected reads of the other fields. [1] Obviously using memset() to initialize a pointer violates the C standard, but we long ago decided that it was an acceptable tradeoff in the real world.

"git cat-file --batch-all" has been sped up, by taking advantage of the fact that it does not have to read a list of objects, in two ways. * jk/cat-file-buffered-batch-all: cat-file: default to --buffer when --batch-all-objects is used cat-file: avoid noop calls to sha1_object_info_extended
2016-05-18cat-file: default to --buffer when --batch-all-objects is usedJeff King
Traditionally cat-file's batch-mode does not do any output buffering. The reason is that a caller may have pipes connected to its input and output, and would want to use cat-file interactively, getting output immediately for each input it sends. This may involve a lot of small write() calls, which can be slow. So we introduced --buffer to improve this, but we can't turn it on by default, as it would break the interactive case above. However, when --batch-all-objects is used, we do not read stdin at all. We generate the output ourselves as quickly as possible, and then exit. In this case buffering is a strict win, and it is simply a hassle for the user to have to remember to specify --buffer. This patch makes --buffer the default when --batch-all-objects is used. Specifying "--buffer" manually is still OK, and you can even override it with "--no-buffer" if you're a masochist (or debugging). For some real numbers, running: git cat-file --batch-all-objects --batch-check='%(objectname)' on torvalds/linux goes from: real 0m1.464s user 0m1.208s sys 0m0.252s to: real 0m1.230s user 0m1.172s sys 0m0.056s for a 16% speedup.

2016-05-18cat-file: avoid noop calls to sha1_object_info_extendedJeff King
It is not unreasonable to ask cat-file for a batch-check format of simply "%(objectname)". At first glance this seems like a noop (you are generally already feeding the object names on stdin!), but it has a few uses: 1. With --batch-all-objects, you can generate a listing of the sha1s present in the repository, without any input. 2. You do not have to feed sha1s; you can feed arbitrary sha1 expressions and have git resolve them en masse. 3. You can even feed a raw sha1, with the result that git will tell you whether we actually have the object or not. In case 3, the call to sha1_object_info is useful; it tells us whether the object exists or not (technically we could swap this out for has_sha1_file, but the cost is roughly the same). In case 2, the existence check is of debatable value. A mass-resolution might prefer performance to safety (against outputting a value for a corrupted ref, for example). However, the object lookup cost is likely not as noticeable compared to the resolution cost. And since we have provided that safety in the past, the conservative choice is to keep it. In case 1, though, the object lookup is a definite noop; we know about the object because we found it in the object database. There is no new information gained by making the call. This patch detects that case and optimizes out the call. Here are best-of-five timings for linux.git: [before] $ time git cat-file --buffer \ --batch-all-objects \ --batch-check='%(objectname)' real 0m2.117s user 0m2.044s sys 0m0.072s [after] $ time git cat-file --buffer \ --batch-all-objects \ --batch-check='%(objectname)' real 0m1.230s user 0m1.176s sys 0m0.052s There are two implementation details to note here. One is that we detect the noop case by seeing that "struct object_info" does not request any information. But besides object existence, there is one other piece of information which sha1_object_info may fill in: whether the object is cached, loose, or packed. We don't currently provide that information in the output, but if we were to do so later, we'd need to take note and disable the optimization in that case. And that leads to the second note. If we were to output that information, a better implementation would be to remember where we saw the object in --batch-all-objects in the first place, and avoid looking it up again by sha1. In fact, we could probably squeeze out some extra performance for less-trivial cases, too, by remembering the pack location where we saw the object, and going directly there to find its information (like type, size, etc). That would in theory make this optimization unnecessary. I didn't pursue that path here for two reasons: 1. It's non-trivial to implement, and has memory implications. Because we sort and de-dup the list of output sha1s, we'd have to record the pack information for each object, too. 2. It doesn't save as much as you might hope. It saves the find_pack_entry() call, but getting the size and type for deltified objects requires walking down the delta chain (for the real type) or reading the delta data header (for the size). These costs tend to dominate the non-trivial cases. By contrast, this optimization is easy and self-contained, and speeds up a real-world case I've used.

2016-01-15strbuf: introduce strbuf_getline_{lf,nul}()Junio C Hamano
The strbuf_getline() interface allows a byte other than LF or NUL as the line terminator, but this is only because I wrote these codepaths anticipating that there might be a value other than NUL and LF that could be useful when I introduced line_termination long time ago. No useful caller that uses other value has emerged. By now, it is clear that the interface is overly broad without a good reason. Many codepaths have hardcoded preference to read either LF terminated or NUL terminated records from their input, and then call strbuf_getline() with LF or NUL as the third parameter. This step introduces two thin wrappers around strbuf_getline(), namely, strbuf_getline_lf() and strbuf_getline_nul(), and mechanically rewrites these call sites to call either one of them. The changes contained in this patch are: * introduction of these two functions in strbuf.[ch] * mechanical conversion of all callers to strbuf_getline() with either '\n' or '\0' as the third parameter to instead call the respective thin wrapper. After this step, output from "git grep 'strbuf_getline('" would become a lot smaller. An interim goal of this series is to make this an empty set, so that we can have strbuf_getline_crlf() take over the shorter name strbuf_getline(). Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2015-10-16usage: do not insist that standard input must come from a fileJunio C Hamano
The synopsys text and the usage string of subcommands that read list of things from the standard input are often shown like this: git gostak [--distim] < <list-of-doshes> This is problematic in a number of ways: * The way to use these commands is more often to feed them the output from another command, not feed them from a file. * Manual pages outside Git, commands that operate on the data read from the standard input, e.g "sort", "grep", "sed", etc., are not described with such a "< redirection-from-file" in their synopsys text. Our doing so introduces inconsistency. * We do not insist on where the output should go, by saying git gostak [--distim] < <list-of-doshes> > <output> * As it is our convention to enclose placeholders inside <braket>, the redirection operator followed by a placeholder filename becomes very hard to read, both in the documentation and in the help text.

2015-06-22cat-file: add --batch-all-objects optionJeff King
It can sometimes be useful to examine all objects in the repository. Normally this is done with "git rev-list --all --objects", but: 1. That shows only reachable objects. You may want to look at all available objects. 2. It's slow. We actually open each object to walk the graph. If your operation is OK with seeing unreachable objects, it's an order of magnitude faster to just enumerate the loose directories and pack indices. You can do this yourself using "ls" and "git show-index", but it's non-obvious. This patch adds an option to "cat-file --batch-check" to operate on all available objects (rather than reading names from stdin). This is based on a proposal by Charles Bailey to provide a separate "git list-all-objects" command. That is more orthogonal, as it splits enumerating the objects from getting information about them. However, in practice you will either: a. Feed the list of objects directly into cat-file anyway, so you can find out information about them. Keeping it in a single process is more efficient. b. Ask the listing process to start telling you more information about the objects, in which case you will reinvent cat-file's batch-check formatter. Adding a cat-file option is simple and efficient. And if you really do want just the object names, you can always do: git cat-file --batch-check='%(objectname)' --batch-all-objects Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2014-03-13cat-file: restore warn_on_object_refname_ambiguity flagJeff King
Commit 25fba78 turned off the object/refname ambiguity check during "git cat-file --batch" operations. However, this is a global flag, so let's restore it when we are done. This shouldn't make any practical difference, as cat-file exits immediately afterwards, but is good code hygeine and would prevent an unnecessary surprise if somebody starts to call cmd_cat_file later.

read_sha1_file() that is the workhorse to read the contents given an object name honoured object replacements, but there is no corresponding mechanism to sha1_object_info() that is used to obtain the metainfo (e.g. type & size) about the object, leading callers to weird inconsistencies. * cc/replace-object-info: replace info: rename 'full' to 'long' and clarify in-code symbols Documentation/git-replace: describe --format option builtin/replace: unset read_replace_refs t6050: add tests for listing with --format builtin/replace: teach listing using short, medium or full formats sha1_file: perform object replacement in sha1_object_info_extended() t6050: show that git cat-file --batch fails with replace objects sha1_object_info_extended(): add an "unsigned flags" parameter sha1_file.c: add lookup_replace_object_extended() to pass flags replace_object: don't check read_replace_refs twice rename READ_SHA1_FILE_REPLACE flag to LOOKUP_REPLACE_OBJECT
2014-01-07cat-file: fix a minor memory leak in batch_objectsJeff King
We should always have been freeing our strbuf, but doing so consistently was annoying until the refactoring in the previous patch. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2014-01-07cat-file: refactor error handling of batch_objectsJeff King
This just pulls the return value for the function out of the inner loop, so we can break out of the loop rather than do an early return. This will make it easier to put any cleanup for the function in one place. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2013-12-26cat-file: provide %(deltabase) batch formatJeff King
It can be useful for debugging or analysis to see which objects are stored as delta bases on top of others. This information is available by running `git verify-pack`, but that is extremely expensive (and is harder than necessary to parse). Instead, let's make it available as a cat-file query format, which makes it fast and simple to get the bases for a subset of the objects. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
