* rs/diff-no-minimal: git diff too slow for a file
2010-05-04remove ecb parameter from xdi_diff_outf()René Scharfe
xdi_diff_outf() overrides the structure members of its last parameter, ignoring any value that callers pass in. It's no surprise then that all callers pass a pointer to an uninitialized structure. They also don't read it after the call, so the parameter is neither used for input nor for output. Turn it into a local variable of xdi_diff_outf().

2010-05-02git diff too slow for a fileRené Scharfe
Ever since the xdiff library had been introduced to git, all its callers have used the flag XDF_NEED_MINIMAL. It makes sure that the smallest possible diff is produced, but that takes quite some time if there are lots of differences that can be expressed in multiple ways. This flag makes a difference for only 0.1% of the non-merge commits in the git repo of Linux, both in terms of diff size and execution time. The patches there are mostly nice and small. SungHyun Nam however reported a case in a different repo where a diff took more than 20 times longer to generate with XDF_NEED_MINIMAL than without. Rebasing became really slow. This patch removes this flag from all callers. The default of xdiff is saner because it has minimal to no impact in the normal case of small diffs and doesn't incur that much of a speed penalty for large ones. A follow-up patch may introduce a command line option to set the flag if the user needs it, similar to GNU diff's -d/--minimal. Signed-off-by: Rene Scharfe <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2010-04-17combined diff: correctly handle truncated fileThomas Rast
Consider an evil merge of two commits A and B, both of which have a file 'foo', but the merge result does not have that file. The combined-diff code learned in 4462731 (combine-diff: do not punt on removed or added files., 2006-02-06) to concisely show only the removal, since that is the evil part and the previous contents are presumably uninteresting. However, to diagnose an empty merge result, it overloaded the variable that holds the file's length. This means that the check also triggers for truncated files. Consequently, such files were not shown in the diff at all despite the merge being clearly evil. Fix this by adding a new variable that distinguishes whether the file was deleted (which is the case 4462731 handled) or truncated. In the truncated case, we show the full combined diff again, which is rather spammy but at least does not hide the evilness.

2009-07-22diff --cc: a lost line at the beginning of the file is shown incorrectlyJunio C Hamano
When combine-diff inspected the diff from one parent to the merge result, it misinterpreted a header in the form @@ -l,k +0,0 @@. This hunk header means that K lines were removed from the beginning of the file, so the lost lines must be queued to the sline that represents the first line of the merge result, but we incremented our pointer incorrectly and ended up queuing it to the second line, which in turn made the lossage appear _after_ the first line. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2009-07-22combine-diff.c: fix performance problem when folding common deleted linesJunio C Hamano
For a deleted line in a patch with the parent we are looking at, the append_lost() function finds the same line among a run of lines that were deleted from the same location by patches from parents we previously checked. This is so that patches with two parents @@ -1,4 +1,3 @@ @@ -1,4 +1,3 @@ one one -two -two three three -quatro -fyra +four +four can be coalesced into this sequence, reusing one line that describes the removal of "two" for both parents. @@@ -1,4 -1,4 +1,3 @@@ one --two three - quatro -frya ++four While reading the second patch (that removes "two" and then "fyra"), after finding where removal of the "two" matches, we need to find existing removal of "fyra" (if exists) in the removal list, but the match has to happen after all the existing matches (in this case "two"). The code used a naïve O(n^2) algorithm to compute this by scanning the whole removal list over and over again. This patch remembers where the next scan should be started in the existing removal list to avoid this. Noticed by Linus Torvalds. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2008-08-31diff: vary default prefix depending on what are comparedJunio C Hamano
With a new configuration "diff.mnemonicprefix", "git diff" shows the differences between various combinations of preimage and postimage trees with prefixes different from the standard "a/" and "b/". Hopefully this will make the distinction stand out for some people. "git diff" compares the (i)ndex and the (w)ork tree; "git diff HEAD" compares a (c)ommit and the (w)ork tree; "git diff --cached" compares a (c)ommit and the (i)ndex; "git-diff HEAD:file1 file2" compares an (o)bject and a (w)ork tree entity; "git diff --no-index a b" compares two non-git things (1) and (2). Because these mnemonics now have meanings, they are swapped when reverse diff is in effect and this feature is enabled. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2008-08-31diff: Help "less" hide ^M from the outputJunio C Hamano
When the tracked contents have CRLF line endings, colored diff output shows "^M" at the end of output lines, which is distracting, even though the pager we use by default ("less") knows to hide them. The problem is that "less" hides a carriage-return only at the end of the line, immediately before a line feed. The colored diff output does not take this into account, and emits four element sequence for each line: - force this color; - the line up to but not including the terminating line feed; - reset color - line feed. By including the carriage return at the end of the line in the second item, we are breaking the smart our pager has in order not to show "^M". This can be fixed by changing the sequence to: - force this color; - the line up to but not including the terminating end-of-line; - reset color - end-of-line. where end-of-line is either a single linefeed or a CRLF pair. When the output is not colored, "force this color" and "reset color" sequences are both empty, so we won't have this problem with or without this patch. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2008-08-14xdiff-interface: hide the whole "xdiff_emit_state" business from the callerJunio C Hamano
This further enhances xdi_diff_outf() interface so that it takes two common parameters: the callback function that processes one line at a time, and a pointer to its application specific callback data structure. xdi_diff_outf() creates its own "xdiff_emit_state" structure and stashes these two away inside it, which is used by the lowest level output function in the xdiff_outf() callchain, consume_one(), to call back to the application layer. With this restructuring, we lift the requirement that the caller supplied callback data structure embeds xdiff_emit_state structure as its first member. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2007-12-27Fix rewrite_diff() name quoting.Junio C Hamano
This moves the logic to quote two paths (prefix + path) in C-style introduced in the previous commit from the dump_quoted_path() in combine-diff.c to quote.c, and uses it to fix rewrite_diff() that never C-quoted the pathnames correctly. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2007-12-27combine-diff: Fix path quotingJunio C Hamano

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 <>

2007-04-23Support 'diff=pgm' attributeJunio C Hamano
This enhances the attributes mechanism so that external programs meant for existing GIT_EXTERNAL_DIFF interface can be specifed per path. To configure such a custom diff driver, first define a custom diff driver in the configuration: [diff "my-c-diff"] command = <<your command string comes here>> Then mark the paths that you want to use this custom driver using the attribute mechanism. *.c diff=my-c-diff The intent of this separation is that the attribute mechanism is used for specifying the type of the contents, while the configuration mechanism is used to define what needs to be done to that type of the contents, which would be specific to both platform and personal taste.

2007-03-07Cast 64 bit off_t to 32 bit size_tShawn O. Pearce
Some systems have sizeof(off_t) == 8 while sizeof(size_t) == 4. This implies that we are able to access and work on files whose maximum length is around 2^63-1 bytes, but we can only malloc or mmap somewhat less than 2^32-1 bytes of memory. On such a system an implicit conversion of off_t to size_t can cause the size_t to wrap, resulting in unexpected and exciting behavior. Right now we are working around all gcc warnings generated by the -Wshorten-64-to-32 option by passing the off_t through xsize_t(). In the future we should make xsize_t on such problematic platforms detect the wrapping and die if such a file is accessed. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2007-02-27convert object type handling from a string to a numberNicolas Pitre
We currently have two parallel notation for dealing with object types in the code: a string and a numerical value. One of them is obviously redundent, and the most used one requires more stack space and a bunch of strcmp() all over the place. This is an initial step for the removal of the version using a char array found in object reading code paths. The patch is unfortunately large but there is no sane way to split it in smaller parts without breaking the system. Signed-off-by: Nicolas Pitre <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2007-02-27diff --cc: integer overflow given a 2GB-or-larger fileJim Meyering
Few of us use git to compare or even version-control 2GB files, but when we do, we'll want it to work. Reading a recent patch, I noticed two lines like this: int len = st.st_size; Instead of "int", that should be "size_t". Otherwise, in the non-symlink case, with 64-bit size_t, if the file's size is 2GB, the following xmalloc will fail: result = xmalloc(len + 1); trying to allocate 2^64 - 2^31 + 1 bytes (assuming sign-extension in the int-to-size_t promotion). And even if it didn't fail, the subsequent "result[len] = 0;" would be equivalent to an unpleasant "result[-2147483648] = 0;" The other nearby "int"-declared size variable, sz, should also be of type size_t, for the same reason. If sz ever wraps around and becomes negative, xread will corrupt memory _before_ the "result" buffer. Signed-off-by: Jim Meyering <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
