2019-09-28contrib/buildsystems: fix Visual Studio Debug configurationAlexandr Miloslavskiy
Even though Debug configuration builds, the resulting build is incorrect in a subtle way: it mixes up Debug and Release binaries, which in turn causes hard-to-predict bugs. In my case, when git calls iconv library, iconv sets 'errno' and git then tests it, but in Debug and Release CRT those 'errno' are different memory locations. This patch addresses 3 connected bugs: 1) Typo in '\(Configuration)'. As a result, Debug configuration condition is always false and Release path is taken instead. 2) Regexp that replaced 'zlib.lib' with 'zlibd.lib' was only affecting the first occurrence. However, some projects have it listed twice. Previously this bug was hidden, because Debug path was never taken. I decided that avoiding double -lz in makefile is fragile and I'd better replace all occurrences instead. 3) In Debug, 'libcurl-d.lib' should be used instead of 'libcurl.lib'. Previously this bug was hidden, because Debug path was never taken.

2019-09-12completion: teach archive to use __gitcomp_builtinDenton Liu
Currently, _git_archive() uses a hardcoded list of options for its completion. However, we can use __gitcomp_builtin() to get a dynamically generated list of completions instead. Teach _git_archive() to use __gitcomp_builtin() so that newly implemented options in archive will be automatically completed without any mucking around in git-completion.bash. While we're at it, teach it to complete the missing `--worktree-attributes` option as well. Unfortunately, since some args are passed through from cmd_archive() to write_archive() (which calls parse_archive_args()), there's no way that a `--git-completion-helper` arg can end up reaching parse_archive_args() since the first call to parse_options() will end up calling exit(0).

2019-09-05Recommend git-filter-repo instead of git-filter-branchElijah Newren
filter-branch suffers from a deluge of disguised dangers that disfigure history rewrites (i.e. deviate from the deliberate changes). Many of these problems are unobtrusive and can easily go undiscovered until the new repository is in use. This can result in problems ranging from an even messier history than what led folks to filter-branch in the first place, to data loss or corruption. These issues cannot be backward compatibly fixed, so add a warning to both filter-branch and its manpage recommending that another tool (such as filter-repo) be used instead. Also, update other manpages that referenced filter-branch. Several of these needed updates even if we could continue recommending filter-branch, either due to implying that something was unique to filter-branch when it applied more generally to all history rewriting tools (e.g. BFG, reposurgeon, fast-import, filter-repo), or because something about filter-branch was used as an example despite other more commonly known examples now existing. Reword these sections to fix these issues and to avoid recommending filter-branch. Finally, remove the section explaining BFG Repo Cleaner as an alternative to filter-branch. I feel somewhat bad about this, especially since I feel like I learned so much from BFG that I put to good use in filter-repo (which is much more than I can say for filter-branch), but keeping that section presented a few problems: * In order to recommend that people quit using filter-branch, we need to provide them a recomendation for something else to use that can handle all the same types of rewrites. To my knowledge, filter-repo is the only such tool. So it needs to be mentioned. * I don't want to give conflicting recommendations to users * If we recommend two tools, we shouldn't expect users to learn both and pick which one to use; we should explain which problems one can solve that the other can't or when one is much faster than the other. * BFG and filter-repo have similar performance * All filtering types that BFG can do, filter-repo can also do. In fact, filter-repo comes with a reimplementation of BFG named bfg-ish which provides the same user-interface as BFG but with several bugfixes and new features that are hard to implement in BFG due to its technical underpinnings. While I could still mention both tools, it seems like I would need to provide some kind of comparison and I would ultimately just say that filter-repo can do everything BFG can, so ultimately it seems that it is just better to remove that section altogether.

2019-08-27rebase: teach rebase --keep-baseDenton Liu
A common scenario is if a user is working on a topic branch and they wish to make some changes to intermediate commits or autosquash, they would run something such as git rebase -i --onto master... master in order to preserve the merge base. This is useful when contributing a patch series to the Git mailing list, one often starts on top of the current 'master'. While developing the patches, 'master' is also developed further and it is sometimes not the best idea to keep rebasing on top of 'master', but to keep the base commit as-is. In addition to this, a user wishing to test individual commits in a topic branch without changing anything may run git rebase -x ./test.sh master... master Since rebasing onto the merge base of the branch and the upstream is such a common case, introduce the --keep-base option as a shortcut. This allows us to rewrite the above as git rebase -i --keep-base master and git rebase -x ./test.sh --keep-base master respectively. Add tests to ensure --keep-base works correctly in the normal case and fails when there are multiple merge bases, both in regular and interactive mode. Also, test to make sure conflicting options cause rebase to fail. While we're adding test cases, add a missing set_fake_editor call to 'rebase -i --onto master...side'. While we're documenting the --keep-base option, change an instance of "merge-base" to "merge base", which is the consistent spelling.

2019-08-13completion: complete config variables and values for 'git clone --config='SZEDER Gábor
Completing configuration sections and variable names for the stuck argument of 'git clone --config=<TAB>' requires a bit of extra care compared to doing the same for the unstuck argument of 'git clone --config <TAB>', because we have to deal with that '--config=' being part of the current word to be completed. Add an option to the __git_complete_config_variable_name_and_value() and in turn to the __git_complete_config_variable_name() helper functions to specify the current section/variable name to be completed, so they can be used even when completing the stuck argument of '--config='. __git_complete_config_variable_value() already has such an option, and thus no further changes were necessary to complete possible values after 'git clone --config=section.name=<TAB>'.

2019-08-13completion: complete config variables names and values for 'git clone -c'SZEDER Gábor
The previous commits taught the completion script how to complete configuration section, variable names, and their valus after 'git -c <TAB>', and with a bit of foresight encapsulated all that in a dedicated helper function. Use that function to complete the unstuck argument of 'git config -c|--config <TAB>', which expect configuration variables and values in the same 'section.name=value' form. Note that handling the struck argument for 'git clone --config=<TAB>' requires some extra care, so it will be done a separate patch.

'git -c', however, expects them in a single option joined by a '=' character, so we should be able to complete values when they are following 'section.name=' in the same word.

2019-08-13completion: complete configuration sections and variable names for 'git -c'SZEDER Gábor
'git config' expects a configuration variable's name and value in separate arguments, so we let the __gitcomp() helper append a space character to each variable name by default, like we do for most other things (--options, refs, paths, etc.). 'git -c', however, expects them in a single option joined by a '=' character, i.e. 'section.name=value', so we should append a '=' character to each fully completed variable name, but no space, so the user can continue typing the value right away. Add an option to the __git_complete_config_variable_name() function to allow callers to specify an alternate suffix to add, and use it to append that '=' character to configuration variables.

2019-08-13completion: simplify inner 'case' pattern in __gitcomp()SZEDER Gábor
The second '*' in the '--*=*' pattern of the inner 'case' statement of the __gitcomp() helper function never matches anything, so let's use '--*=' instead. The purpose of that inner case statement is to decide when to append a trailing space to the listed options and when not. When an option requires a stuck argument, i.e. '--option=', then the trailing space should not be added, so the user can continue typing the required argument right away. That '--*=*' pattern is supposed to match these options, but for this purpose that second '*' is unnecessary, a '--*=' pattern works just as well. That second '*' would only make a difference in case of a possible completion word like '--option=value', but our completion script never passes such a word to __gitcomp(), because the '--option=' and its 'value' must be completed separately.

2019-08-13completion: use 'sort -u' to deduplicate config variable namesSZEDER Gábor
The completion script runs the classic '| sort | uniq' pipeline to deduplicate the output of 'git help --config-for-completion'. 'sort -u' does the same, but uses one less external process and pipeline stage. Not a bit win, as it's only run once as the list of supported configuration variables is initialized, but at least it sets a better example for others to follow.

2019-08-13completion: deduplicate configuration sectionsSZEDER Gábor
The number of configuration variables listed by the completion script grew quite when we started to auto-generate it from the documentation [1], so we now complete them in two steps: first we list only the section names, then the rest [2]. To get the section names we simply strip everything following the first dot in each variable name, resulting in a lot of repeated section names, because most sections contain more than one configuration variable. This is not a correctness issue in practice, because Bash's completion facilities remove all repetitions anyway, but these repetitions make testing a bit harder. Replace the small 'sed' script removing subsections and variable names with an 'awk' script that does the same, and in addition removes any repeated configuration sections as well (by first creating and filling an associative array indexed by all encountered configuration sections, and then iterating over this array and printing the indices, i.e. the unique section names). This change makes the failing 'git config - section' test in 't9902-completion.sh' pass. Note that this changes the order of section names in the output, and makes it downright undeterministic, but this is not an issue, because Bash sorts them before presenting them to the user, and our completion tests sort them as well before comparing with the expected output. Yeah, it would be simpler and shorter to just append '| sort -u' to that command, but that would incur the overhead of one more external process and pipeline stage every time a user completes configuration sections.

Most 'color.*' configuration variables, with the sole exception of 'color.pager', accept the same set of values, but our completion script recognizes only about half of them. We could explicitly add all those missing variables, but let's try to reduce future maintenance burden, and use the catch-all 'color.*' pattern instead, so this list won't get out of sync when a similar new configuration variable accepting the same values is introduced [1]. Furthermore, their documentation explicitly mentions that they all accept the standard boolean values 'false' and 'true' as well, so list these, too, among the possible values. [1] OTOH, there will be a maintenance burden if ever a new 'color.something' is introduced which doesn't accept the same set of values. We'll see which one happens first...

2019-07-29vcxproj: also link-or-copy builtinsJohannes Schindelin
The default location for `.exe` files linked by Visual Studio depends on the mode (debug vs release) and the architecture. Meaning: after a full build, there is a `git.exe` in the top-level directory, but none of the built-ins are linked.. When running a test script in Git Bash, it therefore would pick up the wrong, say, `git-receive-pack.exe`: the one installed at the same time as the Git Bash. Absolutely not what we want. We want to have confidence that our test covers the MSVC-built Git executables, and not some random stuff.

2019-07-29msvc: add a Makefile target to pre-generate the Visual Studio solutionJohannes Schindelin
The entire idea of generating the VS solution makes only sense if we generate it via Continuous Integration; otherwise potential users would still have to download the entire Git for Windows SDK. If we pre-generate the Visual Studio solution, Git can be built entirely within Visual Studio, and the test scripts can be run in a regular Git for Windows (e.g. the Portable Git flavor, which does not include a full GCC toolchain and therefore weighs only about a tenth of Git for Windows' SDK). So let's just add a target in the Makefile that can be used to generate said solution; The generated files will then be committed so that they can be pushed to a branch ready to check out by Visual Studio users. To make things even more useful, we also generate and commit other files that are required to run the test suite, such as templates and bin-wrappers: with this, developers can run the test suite in a regular Git Bash after building the solution in Visual Studio. Note: for this build target, we do not actually need to initialize the `vcpkg` system, so we don't.

2019-07-29contrib/buildsystems: add a backend for modern Visual Studio versionsJohannes Schindelin
Based on the previous patches in this patch series that fixed the generator for `.vcproj` files (which were used by Visual Studio prior to 2015 to define projects), this patch offers to generate project definitions for neweer versions of Visual Studio (which use `.vcxproj` files). To that end, this patch copy-edits the generator of the `.vcproj`. In addition, we now use the `vcpkg` system which allows us to build Git's dependencies (e.g. curl, libexpat) conveniently. The support scripts were introduced in the `jh/msvc` patch series, and with this patch we initialize the `vcpkg` conditionally, in the `libgit` project's `PreBuildEvent`. To allow for parallel building of the projects, we therefore put `libgit` at the bottom of the project hierarchy.

2019-07-29contrib/buildsystems: handle options starting with a slashJohannes Schindelin
With the recent changes to allow building with MSVC=1, we now pass the /OPT:REF option to the compiler. This confuses the parser that wants to turn the output of a dry run into project definitions for QMake and Visual Studio: Unhandled link option @ line 213: /OPT:REF at [...] Let's just extend the code that passes through options that start with a dash, so that it passes through options that start with a slash, too.

2019-07-29contrib/buildsystems: handle libiconv, tooJohannes Schindelin
Git's test suite shows tons of breakages unless Git is compiled *without* NO_ICONV. That means, in turn, that we need to generate build definitions *with* libiconv, which in turn implies that we have to handle the -liconv option properly.

Upon seeing the '-lcurl' option, point to the libcurl.lib. While there, fix the elsif indentation. Signed-off-by: Philip Oakley <philipoakley@iee.org> Signed-off-by: Johannes Schindelin <johannes.schindelin@gmx.de> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2019-07-29contrib/buildsystems: error out on unknown optionJohannes Schindelin
One time too many did this developer call the `generate` script passing a `--make-out=<PATH>` option that was happily ignored (because there should be a space, not an equal sign, between `--make-out` and the path). And one time too many, this script not only ignored it but did not even complain. Let's fix that.

2019-07-29contrib/buildsystems: optionally capture the dry-run in a filePhilip Oakley
Add an option for capturing the output of the make dry-run used in determining the msvc-build structure for easy debugging. You can use the output of `--make-out <path>` in subsequent runs via the `--in <path>` option.

2019-07-29contrib/buildsystems: redirect errors of the dry run into a log filePhilip Oakley
Rather than swallowing the errors, it is better to have them in a file. To make it obvious what this is about, use the file name 'msvc-build-makedryerrors.txt'. Further, if the output is empty, simply delete that file. As we target Git for Windows' SDK (which, unlike its predecessor msysGit, offers Perl versions newer than 5.8), we can use the quite readable syntax `if -f -z $ErrsFile` (available in Perl >=5.10). Note that the file will contain the new values of the GIT_VERSION and GITGUI_VERSION if they were generated by the make file. They are omitted if the release is tagged and indentically defined in their respective GIT_VERSION_GEN file DEF_VER variables.

2019-07-29contrib/buildsystems: ignore gettext stuffPhilip Oakley
Git's build contains steps to handle internationalization. This caused hiccups in the parser used to generate QMake/Visual Studio project files. As those steps are irrelevant in this context, let's just ignore them.

2019-07-29contrib/buildsystems: handle quoted spaces in filenamesPhilip Oakley
The engine.pl script expects file names not to contain spaces. However, paths with spaces are quite prevalent on Windows. Use shellwords() rather than split() to parse them correctly.
