2015-10-16strbuf: make stripspace() part of strbufTobias Klauser
This function is also used in other builtins than stripspace, so it makes sense to have it in a more generic place. Since it operates on an strbuf and the function is declared in strbuf.h, move it to strbuf.c and add the corresponding prefix to its name, just like other API functions in the strbuf_* family. Also switch all current users of stripspace() to the new function name and keep a temporary wrapper inline function for any topic branches still using stripspace().

2015-10-05use sha1_to_hex_r() instead of strcpyJeff King
Before sha1_to_hex_r() existed, a simple way to get hex sha1 into a buffer was with: strcpy(buf, sha1_to_hex(sha1)); This isn't wrong (assuming the buf is 41 characters), but it makes auditing the code base for bad strcpy() calls harder, as these become false positives. Let's convert them to sha1_to_hex_r(), and likewise for some calls to find_unique_abbrev(). While we're here, we'll double-check that all of the buffers are correctly sized, and use the more obvious GIT_SHA1_HEXSZ constant. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2015-08-10memoize common git-path "constant" filesJeff King
One of the most common uses of git_path() is to pass a constant, like git_path("MERGE_MSG"). This has two drawbacks: 1. The return value is a static buffer, and the lifetime is dependent on other calls to git_path, etc. 2. There's no compile-time checking of the pathname. This is OK for a one-off (after all, we have to spell it correctly at least once), but many of these constant strings appear throughout the code. This patch introduces a series of functions to "memoize" these strings, which are essentially globals for the lifetime of the program. We compute the value once, take ownership of the buffer, and return the cached value for subsequent calls. cache.h provides a helper macro for defining these functions as one-liners, and defines a few common ones for global use. Using a macro is a little bit gross, but it does nicely document the purpose of the functions. If we need to touch them all later (e.g., because we learned how to change the git_dir variable at runtime, and need to invalidate all of the stored values), it will be much easier to have the complete list. Note that the shared-global functions have separate, manual declarations. We could do something clever with the macros (e.g., expand it to a declaration in some places, and a declaration _and_ a definition in path.c). But there aren't that many, and it's probably better to stay away from too-magical macros. Likewise, if we abandon the C preprocessor in favor of generating these with a script, we could get much fancier. E.g., normalizing "FOO/BAR-BAZ" into "git_path_foo_bar_baz". But the small amount of saved typing is probably not worth the resulting confusion to readers who want to grep for the function's definition.

2015-05-21remote.c: drop "remote" pointer from "struct branch"Jeff King
When we create each branch struct, we fill in the "remote_name" field from the config, and then fill in the actual "remote" field (with a "struct remote") based on that name. However, it turns out that nobody really cares about the latter field. The only two sites that access it at all are: 1. git-merge, which uses it to notice when the branch does not have a remote defined. But we can easily replace this with looking at remote_name instead. 2. remote.c itself, when setting up the @{upstream} merge config. But we don't need to save the "remote" in the "struct branch" for that; we can just look it up for the duration of the operation. So there is no need to have both fields; they are redundant with each other (the struct remote contains the name, or you can look up the struct from the name). It would be nice to simplify this, especially as we are going to add matching pushremote config in a future patch (and it would be nice to keep them consistent). So which one do we keep and which one do we get rid of? If we had a lot of callers accessing the struct, it would be more efficient to keep it (since you have to do a lookup to go from the name to the struct, but not vice versa). But we don't have a lot of callers; we have exactly one, so efficiency doesn't matter. We can decide this based on simplicity and readability. And the meaning of the struct value is somewhat unclear. Is it always the remote matching remote_name? If remote_name is NULL (i.e., no per-branch config), does the struct fall back to the "origin" remote, or is it also NULL? These questions will get even more tricky with pushremotes, whose fallback behavior is more complicated. So let's just store the name, which pretty clearly represents the branch.*.remote config. Any lookup or fallback behavior can then be implemented in helper functions. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2015-04-29merge: deprecate 'git merge <message> HEAD <commit>' syntaxJunio C Hamano
We had this in "git merge" manual for eternity: 'git merge' <msg> HEAD <commit>... [This] syntax (<msg> `HEAD` <commit>...) is supported for historical reasons. Do not use it from the command line or in new scripts. It is the same as `git merge -m <msg> <commit>...`. With the update to "git merge" to make it understand what is recorded in FETCH_HEAD directly, including Octopus merge cases, we now can rewrite the use of this syntax in "git pull" with a simple "git merge FETCH_HEAD". Also there are quite a few fallouts in the test scripts, and it turns out that "git cvsimport" also uses this old syntax to record a merge. Judging from this result, I would not be surprised if dropping the support of the old syntax broke scripts people have written and been relying on for the past ten years. But at least we can start the deprecation process by throwing a warning message when the syntax is used. With luck, we might be able to drop the support in a few years.

2015-04-29merge: handle FETCH_HEAD internallyJunio C Hamano
The collect_parents() function now is responsible for 1. parsing the commits given on the command line into a list of commits to be merged; 2. filtering these parents into independent ones; and 3. optionally calling fmt_merge_msg() via prepare_merge_message() to prepare an auto-generated merge log message, using fake contents that FETCH_HEAD would have had if these commits were fetched from the current repository with "git pull . $args..." Make "git merge FETCH_HEAD" to be the same as the traditional git merge "$(git fmt-merge-msg <.git/FETCH_HEAD)" $commits invocation of the command in "git pull", where $commits are the ones that appear in FETCH_HEAD that are not marked as not-for-merge, by making it do a bit more, specifically: - noticing "FETCH_HEAD" is the only "commit" on the command line and picking the commits that are not marked as not-for-merge as the list of commits to be merged (substitute for step #1 above); - letting the resulting list fed to step #2 above; - doing the step #3 above, using the contents of the FETCH_HEAD instead of fake contents crafted from the list of commits parsed in the step #1 above. Note that this changes the semantics. "git merge FETCH_HEAD" has always behaved as if the first commit in the FETCH_HEAD file were directly specified on the command line, creating a two-way merge whose auto-generated merge log said "merge commit xyz". With this change, if the previous fetch was to grab multiple branches (e.g. "git fetch $there topic-a topic-b"), the new world order is to create an octopus, behaving as if "git pull $there topic-a topic-b" were run. This is a deliberate change to make that happen, and can be seen in the changes to t3033 tests. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2015-04-29merge: narrow scope of merge_namesJunio C Hamano

2015-04-29merge: split reduce_parents() out of collect_parents()Junio C Hamano
The latter does two separate things: - Parse the list of commits on the command line, and formulate the list of commits to be merged (including the current HEAD); - Compute the list of parents to be recorded in the resulting merge commit. Split the latter into a separate helper function, so that we can later supply the list commits to be merged from a different source (namely, FETCH_HEAD). Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2015-04-29merge: clarify collect_parents() logicJunio C Hamano
Clarify this small function in three ways. - The function initially collects all commits to be merged into a commit_list "remoteheads"; the "remotes" pointer always points at the tail of this list (either the remoteheads variable itself, or the ->next slot of the element at the end of the list) to help elongate the list by repeated calls to commit_list_insert(). Because the new element appended by commit_list_insert() will always have its ->next slot NULLed out, there is no need for us to assign NULL to *remotes to terminate the list at the end. - The variable "head_subsumed" always confused me every time I read this code. What is happening here is that we inspect what the caller told us to merge (including the current HEAD) and come up with the list of parents to be recorded for the resulting merge commit, omitting commits that are ancestor of other commits. This filtering may remove the current HEAD from the resulting parent list---and we signal that fact with this variable, so that we can later record it as the first parent when "--no-ff" is in effect. - The "parents" list is created for this function by reduce_heads() and was not deallocated after its use, even though the loop control was written in such a way to allow us to do so by taking the "next" element in a separate variable so that it can be used in the next-step part of the loop control.

2015-04-29merge: do not check argc to determine number of remote headsJunio C Hamano
To reject merging multiple commits into an unborn branch, we check argc, thinking that collect_parents() that reads the remaining command line arguments from <argc, argv> will give us the same number of commits as its input, i.e. argc. Because what we really care about is the number of commits, let the function run and then make sure it returns only one commit instead. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2015-04-16Revert "merge: pass verbosity flag down to merge-recursive"Junio C Hamano
This reverts commit 2bf15a3330a26183adc8563dbeeacc11294b8a01, whose intention was good, but the verbosity levels used in merge-recursive turns out to be rather uneven. For example, a merge of two branches with conflicting submodule updates used to report CONFLICT: output with --quiet but no longer (which *is* desired), while the final "Automatic merge failed; fix conflicts and then commit" message is still shown even with --quiet (which *is* inconsistent). Originally reported by Bryan Turner; it is too early to declare what the concensus is, but it seems that we would need to level the verbosity levels used in merge strategy backends before we can go forward. In the meantime, we'd revert to the old behaviour until that happens. cf. $gmane/267245

"git merge --quiet" did not squelch messages from the underlying merge-recursive strategy. * jk/merge-quiet: merge: pass verbosity flag down to merge-recursive
2015-04-02merge: pass verbosity flag down to merge-recursiveJeff King
This makes "git merge --quiet" really quiet when we call into merge-recursive. Note that we can't just pass our flag down as-is; the two parts of the code use different scales. We center at "0" as normal for git-merge (with "--quiet" giving a negative value), but merge-recursive uses "2" as its center. This patch passes a negative value to merge-recursive rather than "1", though, as otherwise the user would have to use "-qqq" to squelch all messages (but the downside is that the user cannot distinguish between levels 0-2 if without resorting to the GIT_MERGE_VERBOSITY variable). We may want to review and renormalize the message severities in merge-recursive, but that does not have to happen now. This is at least in improvement in the sense that we are respecting "--quiet" at all. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2014-10-30get_merge_bases(): always clean-up object flagsJunio C Hamano
The callers of get_merge_bases() can choose to leave object flags used during the merge-base traversal by passing cleanup=0 as a parameter, but in practice a very few callers can afford to do so (namely, "git merge-base"), as they need to compute merge base in preparation for other processing of their own and they need to see the object without contaminate flags. Change the function signature of get_merge_bases_many() and get_merge_bases() to drop the cleanup parameter, so that the majority of the callers do not have to say ", 1" at the end.

2014-06-12commit_tree: take a pointer/len pair rather than a const strbufJeff King
While strbufs are pretty common throughout our code, it is more flexible for functions to take a pointer/len pair than a strbuf. It's easy to turn a strbuf into such a pair (by dereferencing its members), but less easy to go the other way (you can strbuf_attach, but that has implications about memory ownership). This patch teaches commit_tree (and its associated callers and sub-functions) to take such a pair for the commit message rather than a strbuf. This makes passing the buffer around slightly more verbose, but means we can get rid of some dangerous strbuf_attach calls in the next patch.
