2017-05-26use xfopen() in more placesNguyễn Thái Ngọc Duy
xfopen() - provides error details - explains error on reading, or writing, or whatever operation - has l10n support - prints file name in the error Some of these are missing in the places that are replaced with xfopen(), which is a clear win. In some other places, it's just less code (not as clearly a win as the previous case but still is). The only slight regresssion is in remote-testsvn, where we don't report the file class (marks files) in the error messages anymore.

Convert lookup_commit, lookup_commit_or_die, lookup_commit_reference, and lookup_commit_reference_gently to take struct object_id arguments. Introduce a temporary in parse_object buffer in order to convert this function. This is required since in order to convert parse_object and parse_object_buffer, lookup_commit_reference_gently and lookup_commit_or_die would need to be converted. Not introducing a temporary would therefore require that lookup_commit_or_die take a struct object_id *, but lookup_commit would take unsigned char *, leaving a confusing and hard-to-use interface. parse_object_buffer will lose this temporary in a later patch.

2017-03-14Merge branch 'jk/interpret-branch-name'Junio C Hamano
"git branch @" created refs/heads/@ as a branch, and in general the code that handled @{-1} and @{upstream} was a bit too loose in disambiguating. * jk/interpret-branch-name: checkout: restrict @-expansions when finding branch strbuf_check_ref_format(): expand only local branches branch: restrict @-expansions when deleting t3204: test git-branch @-expansion corner cases interpret_branch_name: allow callers to restrict expansions strbuf_branchname: add docstring strbuf_branchname: drop return value interpret_branch_name: move docstring to header file interpret_branch_name(): handle auto-namelen for @{-1}
2017-03-02interpret_branch_name: allow callers to restrict expansionsJeff King
The interpret_branch_name() function converts names like @{-1} and @{upstream} into branch names. The expanded ref names are not fully qualified, and may be outside of the refs/heads/ namespace (e.g., "@" expands to "HEAD", and "@{upstream}" is likely to be in "refs/remotes/"). This is OK for callers like dwim_ref() which are primarily interested in resolving the resulting name, no matter where it is. But callers like "git branch" treat the result as a branch name in refs/heads/. When we expand to a ref outside that namespace, the results are very confusing (e.g., "git branch @" tries to create refs/heads/HEAD, which is nonsense). Callers can't know from the returned string how the expansion happened (e.g., did the user really ask for a branch named "HEAD", or did we do a bogus expansion?). One fix would be to return some out-parameters describing the types of expansion that occurred. This has the benefit that the caller can generate precise error messages ("I understood @{upstream} to mean origin/master, but that is a remote tracking branch, so you cannot create it as a local name"). However, out-parameters make the function interface somewhat cumbersome. Instead, let's do the opposite: let the caller tell us which elements to expand. That's easier to pass in, and none of the callers give more precise error messages than "@{upstream} isn't a valid branch name" anyway (which should be sufficient). The strbuf_branchname() function needs a similar parameter, as most of the callers access interpret_branch_name() through it. We can break the callers down into two groups: 1. Callers that are happy with any kind of ref in the result. We pass "0" here, so they continue to work without restrictions. This includes merge_name(), the reflog handling in add_pending_object_with_path(), and substitute_branch_name(). This last is what powers dwim_ref(). 2. Callers that have funny corner cases (mostly in git-branch and git-checkout). These need to make use of the new parameter, but I've left them as "0" in this patch, and will address them individually in follow-on patches.

2016-12-07hold_locked_index(): align error handling with hold_lockfile_for_update()Junio C Hamano
Callers of the hold_locked_index() function pass 0 when they want to prepare to write a new version of the index file without wishing to die or emit an error message when the request fails (e.g. somebody else already held the lock), and pass 1 when they want the call to die upon failure. This option is called LOCK_DIE_ON_ERROR by the underlying lockfile API, and the hold_locked_index() function translates the paramter to LOCK_DIE_ON_ERROR when calling the hold_lock_file_for_update(). Replace these hardcoded '1' with LOCK_DIE_ON_ERROR and stop translating. Callers other than the ones that are replaced with this change pass '0' to the function; no behaviour change is intended with this patch. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <> --- Among the callers of hold_locked_index() that passes 0: - diff.c::refresh_index_quietly() at the end of "git diff" is an opportunistic update; it leaks the lockfile structure but it is just before the program exits and nobody should care. - builtin/describe.c::cmd_describe(), builtin/commit.c::cmd_status(), sequencer.c::read_and_refresh_cache() are all opportunistic updates and they are OK. - builtin/update-index.c::cmd_update_index() takes a lock upfront but we may end up not needing to update the index (i.e. the entries may be fully up-to-date), in which case we do not need to issue an error upon failure to acquire the lock. We do diagnose and die if we indeed need to update, so it is OK. - wt-status.c::require_clean_work_tree() IS BUGGY. It asks silence, does not check the returned value. Compare with callsites like cmd_describe() and cmd_status() to notice that it is wrong to call update_index_if_able() unconditionally.
2016-10-26find_unique_abbrev: use 4-buffer ringJeff King
Some code paths want to format multiple abbreviated sha1s in the same output line. Because we use a single static buffer for our return value, they have to either break their output into several calls or allocate their own arrays and use find_unique_abbrev_r(). Intead, let's mimic sha1_to_hex() and use a ring of several buffers, so that the return value stays valid through multiple calls. This shortens some of the callers, and makes it harder to for them to make a silly mistake. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2016-07-26prepare the builtins for a libified merge_recursive()Johannes Schindelin
Previously, callers of merge_trees() or merge_recursive() expected that code to die() with an error message. This used to be okay because we called those commands from scripts, and had a chance to print out a message in case the command failed fatally (read: with exit code 128). As scripting incurs its own set of problems (portability, speed, idiosyncrasies of different shells, limited data structures leading to inefficient code), we are converting more and more of these scripts into builtins, using library functions directly. We already tried to use merge_recursive() directly in the builtin git-am, for example. Unfortunately, we had to roll it back temporarily because some of the code in merge-recursive.c still deemed it okay to call die(), when the builtin am code really wanted to print out a useful advice after the merge failed fatally. In the next commits, we want to fix that. The code touched by this commit expected merge_trees() to die() with some useful message when there is an error condition, but merge_trees() is going to be improved by converting all die() calls to return error() instead (i.e. return value -1 after printing out the message as before), so that the caller can react more flexibly. This is a step to prepare for the version of merge_trees() that no longer dies, even if we just imitate the previous behavior by calling exit(128): this is what callers of e.g. `git merge` have come to expect. Note that the callers of the sequencer (revert and cherry-pick) already fail fast even for the return value -1; The only difference is that they now get a chance to say "<command> failed". A caller of merge_trees() might want handle error messages themselves (or even suppress them). As this patch is already complex enough, we leave that change for a later patch.

2016-04-13builtin/merge.c: fix a bug with trivial mergesElijah Newren
If read_tree_trivial() succeeds and produces a tree that is already in the object store, then the index is not written to disk, leaving it out-of-sync with both HEAD and the working tree. In order to write the index back out to disk after a merge, write_index_locked() needs to be called. For most merge strategies, this is done from try_merge_strategy(). For fast forward updates, this is done from checkout_fast_forward(). When trivial merges work, the call to write_index_locked() is buried a little deeper: merge_trivial() -> write_tree_trivial() -> write_cache_as_tree() -> write_index_as_tree() -> write_locked_index() However, it is only called when !cache_tree_fully_valid(), which is how this bug is triggered. But that also shows why this bug doesn't affect any other merge strategies or cases. Add a direct call to write_index_locked() from merge_trivial() to fix this issue. Since the indirect call to write_locked_index() was conditional on cache_tree_fully_valid(), it won't be written twice. Signed-off-by: Elijah Newren <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2016-03-23merge: refuse to create too cool a merge by defaultJunio C Hamano
While it makes sense to allow merging unrelated histories of two projects that started independently into one, in the way "gitk" was merged to "git" itself aka "the coolest merge ever", such a merge is still an unusual event. Worse, if somebody creates an independent history by starting from a tarball of an established project and sends a pull request to the original project, "git merge" however happily creates such a merge without any sign of something unusual is happening. Teach "git merge" to refuse to create such a merge by default, unless the user passes a new "--allow-unrelated-histories" option to tell it that the user is aware that two unrelated projects are merged. Because such a "two project merge" is a rare event, a configuration option to always allow such a merge is not added. We could add the same option to "git pull" and have it passed through to underlying "git merge". I do not have a fundamental opposition against such a feature, but this commit does not do so and instead leaves it as low-hanging fruit for others, because such a "two project merge" would be done after fetching the other project into some location in the working tree of an existing project and making sure how well they fit together, it is sufficient to allow a local merge without such an option pass-through from "git pull" to "git merge". Many tests that are updated by this patch does the pass-through manually by turning: git pull something into its equivalent: git fetch something && git merge --allow-unrelated-histories FETCH_HEAD If somebody is inclined to add such an option, updated tests in this change need to be adjusted back to: git pull --allow-unrelated-histories something Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

Rename detection is a very convenient feature, and new users shouldn't have to dig in the documentation to benefit from it. Potential objections to activating rename detection are that it sometimes fail, and it is sometimes slow. But rename detection is already activated by default in several cases like "git status" and "git merge", so activating diff.renames does not fundamentally change the situation. When the rename detection fails, it now fails consistently between "git diff" and "git status". This setting does not affect plumbing commands, hence well-written scripts will not be affected.

This may be fixing real bugs, and it makes auditing the code easier. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2016-01-13merge: release pack files before garbage-collectingJohannes Schindelin
Before auto-gc'ing, we need to make sure that the pack files are released in case they need to be repacked and garbage-collected. Signed-off-by: Johannes Schindelin <> Reviewed-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2015-11-20Remove get_object_hash.brian m. carlson
Convert all instances of get_object_hash to use an appropriate reference to the hash member of the oid member of struct object. This provides no functional change, as it is essentially a macro substitution. Signed-off-by: brian m. carlson <> Signed-off-by: Jeff King <>
2015-11-20Convert struct object to object_idbrian m. carlson
struct object is one of the major data structures dealing with object IDs. Convert it to use struct object_id instead of an unsigned char array. Convert get_object_hash to refer to the new member as well. Signed-off-by: brian m. carlson <> Signed-off-by: Jeff King <>
2015-11-20Add several uses of get_object_hash.brian m. carlson
Convert most instances where the sha1 member of struct object is dereferenced to use get_object_hash. Most instances that are passed to functions that have versions taking struct object_id, such as get_sha1_hex/get_oid_hex, or instances that can be trivially converted to use struct object_id instead, are not converted.

2015-10-30Merge branch 'rs/pop-commit'Junio C Hamano
Code simplification. * rs/pop-commit: use pop_commit() for consuming the first entry of a struct commit_list
2015-10-26Merge branch 'tk/stripspace'Junio C Hamano
The internal stripspace() function has been moved to where it logically belongs to, i.e. strbuf API, and the command line parser of "git stripspace" has been updated to use the parse_options API. * tk/stripspace: stripspace: use parse-options for command-line parsing strbuf: make stripspace() part of strbuf
