AgeCommit message (Collapse)Author use the $( ... ) construct for command substitutionElia Pinto
The Git CodingGuidelines prefer the $(...) construct for command substitution instead of using the backquotes `...`. The backquoted form is the traditional method for command substitution, and is supported by POSIX. However, all but the simplest uses become complicated quickly. In particular, embedded command substitutions and/or the use of double quotes require careful escaping with the backslash character. The patch was generated by: for _f in $(find . -name "*.sh") do sed -i 's@`\(.*\)`@$(\1)@g' ${_f} done and then carefully proof-read.

2013-09-17repack: rewrite the shell script in CStefan Beller
The motivation of this patch is to get closer to a goal of being able to have a core subset of git functionality built in to git. That would mean * people on Windows could get a copy of at least the core parts of Git without having to install a Unix-style shell * people using git in on servers with chrooted environments do not need to worry about standard tools lacking for shell scripts. This patch is meant to be mostly a literal translation of the git-repack script; the intent is that later patches would start using more library facilities, but this patch is meant to be as close to a no-op as possible so it doesn't do that kind of thing.
