2005-07-14[PATCH] cat-file: be consistent in usage string and documentation.Junio C Hamano
Now that we have something called tag object, and a notion of "tags" stored in .git/refs/tags/ directory, the word "tagname" has become misleading in the usage string. The documentation already calls that <type>. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2005-07-01[PATCH] Avoid unnecessarily inflating and interpreting deltaJunio C Hamano
This teaches packed_delta_info() that it only needs to look at the type of the base object to figure out both type and size of a deltified object. This saves quite a many calls to inflate() when dealing with a deep delta chain. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2005-06-28[PATCH] git-cat-file: '-s' to find out object size.Junio C Hamano
We use sha1_object_info() now, and getting size is also trivial. I admit that this is more of "because we can" not "because I see immediate need for it", though. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2005-06-28[PATCH] git-cat-file: use sha1_object_info() on '-t'.Junio C Hamano
When trying to find out the type of the object, there is no need to uncompress the whole object. Just use sha1_object_info(). Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>

2005-05-02Make "cat-file" use "read_object_with_reference()"Linus Torvalds
This means that you can take a tag object, and do git-cat-file commit tagname and it will cat the commit that the tag points to. Or you can cat the tree that a commit (or tag) points to. It still gives the old behaviour if you just give it the original type, ie if you want to see the tag object itself, you'd do git-cat-file -t tagname and you'd get the expected tag output.
2005-05-01Add "get_sha1()" helper function.Linus Torvalds
This allows the programs to use various simplified versions of the SHA1 names, eg just say "HEAD" for the SHA1 pointed to by the .git/HEAD file etc. For example, this commit has been done with git-commit-tree $(git-write-tree) -p HEAD instead of the traditional "$(cat .git/HEAD)" syntax.
2005-04-13[PATCH] Consolidate the error handlingPetr Baudis
Now there is error() for "library" errors and die() for fatal "application" errors. usage() is now used strictly only for usage errors. Signed-off-by: Petr Baudis <>
2005-04-08Use "-Wall -O2" for the compiler to get more warnings.Linus Torvalds
And fix up the warnings that it pointed out. Let's keep the tree clean from early on. Not that the code is very beautiful anyway ;)
2005-04-08Make "cat-file" output the file contents to stdout.Linus Torvalds
New syntax: "cat-file -t <sha1>" shows the tag, while "cat-file <tag> <sha1>" outputs the file contents after checking that the supplied tag matches.
2005-04-07Add copyright notices.Linus Torvalds
The tool interface sucks (especially "committing" information, which is just me doing everything by hand from the command line), but I think this is in theory actually a viable way of describing the world. So copyright it.
