2007-09-23Supplant the "while case ... break ;; esac" idiomDavid Kastrup
A lot of shell scripts contained stuff starting with while case "$#" in 0) break ;; esac and similar. I consider breaking out of the condition instead of the body od the loop ugly, and the implied "true" value of the non-matching case is not really obvious to humans at first glance. It happens not to be obvious to some BSD shells, either, but that's because they are not POSIX-compliant. In most cases, this has been replaced by a straight condition using "test". "case" has the advantage of being faster than "test" on vintage shells where "test" is not a builtin. Since none of them is likely to run the git scripts, anyway, the added readability should be worth the change. A few loops have had their termination condition expressed differently.

2007-07-27Make verify-tag a builtin.Carlos Rica
This replaces "" with "builtin-verify-tag.c". Testing relies on the "git tag -v" tests calling this command. A temporary file is needed when calling to gpg, because git is already creating detached signatures (gpg option -b) to sign tags (instead of leaving gpg to add the signature to the file by itself), and those signatures need to be supplied in a separate file to be verified by gpg. The program uses git_mkstemp to create that temporary file needed by gpg, instead of the previously used "$GIT_DIR/.tmp-vtag", in order to allow the command to be used in read-only repositories, and also prevent other instances of git to read or remove the same file. Signal SIGPIPE is ignored because the program sometimes was terminated because that signal when writing the input for gpg. The command now can receive many tag names to be verified. Documentation is also updated here to reflect this new behaviour. Signed-off-by: Carlos Rica <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
