2006-04-22Libify diff-files.Junio C Hamano
This is the first installment to libify diff brothers. The updated diff-files uses revision.c::setup_revisions() infrastructure to parse its command line arguments, which means the pathname arguments are checked more strictly than before. The tests are adjusted to separate possibly missing paths from the rest of arguments with double-dashes, to show the kosher way. As Linus pointed out, renaming diff.c to diff-lib.c was simply stupid, so I am renaming it back. The new diff-lib.c is to contain pieces extracted from diff brothers.

Ok, this was nastier than expected, just because the dependencies between the different log-printing stuff were absolutely _everywhere_, but here's a patch that does exactly that. The patch is not very easy to read, and the "--patch-with-stat" thing is still broken (it does not call the "show_log()" thing properly for merges). That's not a new bug. In the new world order it _should_ do something like if (rev->logopt) show_log(rev, rev->logopt, "---\n"); but it doesn't. I haven't looked at the --with-stat logic, so I left it alone. That said, this patch removes more lines than it adds, and in particular, the "cmd_log_wc()" loop is now a very clean: while ((commit = get_revision(rev)) != NULL) { log_tree_commit(rev, commit); free(commit->buffer); commit->buffer = NULL; } so it doesn't get much prettier than this. All the complexity is entirely hidden in log-tree.c, and any code that needs to flush the log literally just needs to do the "if (rev->logopt) show_log(...)" incantation. I had to make the combined_diff() logic take a "struct rev_info" instead of just a "struct diff_options", but that part is pretty clean. This does change "git whatchanged" from using "diff-tree" as the commit descriptor to "commit", and I changed one of the tests to reflect that new reality. Otherwise everything still passes, and my other tests look fine too. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
2006-03-30tree/diff header cleanup.Junio C Hamano
Introduce tree-walk.[ch] and move "struct tree_desc" and associated functions from various places. Rename DIFF_FILE_CANON_MODE(mode) macro to canon_mode(mode) and move it to cache.h. This macro returns the canonicalized st_mode value in the host byte order for files, symlinks and directories -- to be compared with a tree_desc entry. create_ce_mode(mode) in cache.h is similar but is intended to be used for index entries (so it does not work for directories) and returns the value in the network byte order.

2006-02-14combine-diff: diff-files fix (#2)Junio C Hamano

2006-02-09combine-diff: move formatting logic to show_combined_diff()Junio C Hamano
This way, diff-files can make use of it. Also implement the full suite of what diff_flush_raw() supports just for consistency. With this, 'diff-tree -c -r --name-status' would show what is expected. There is no way to get the historical output (useful for debugging and low-level Plumbing work) anymore, so tentatively it makes '-m' to mean "do not combine and show individual diffs with parents". diff-files matches diff-tree to produce raw output for -c. For textual combined diff, use -p -c. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
2006-02-09"Assume unchanged" gitJunio C Hamano
This adds "assume unchanged" logic, started by this message in the list discussion recently: <Pine.LNX.4.64.0601311807470.7301@g5.osdl.org> This is a workaround for filesystems that do not have lstat() that is quick enough for the index mechanism to take advantage of. On the paths marked as "assumed to be unchanged", the user needs to explicitly use update-index to register the object name to be in the next commit. You can use two new options to update-index to set and reset the CE_VALID bit: git-update-index --assume-unchanged path... git-update-index --no-assume-unchanged path... These forms manipulate only the CE_VALID bit; it does not change the object name recorded in the index file. Nor they add a new entry to the index. When the configuration variable "core.ignorestat = true" is set, the index entries are marked with CE_VALID bit automatically after: - update-index to explicitly register the current object name to the index file. - when update-index --refresh finds the path to be up-to-date. - when tools like read-tree -u and apply --index update the working tree file and register the current object name to the index file. The flag is dropped upon read-tree that does not check out the index entry. This happens regardless of the core.ignorestat settings. Index entries marked with CE_VALID bit are assumed to be unchanged most of the time. However, there are cases that CE_VALID bit is ignored for the sake of safety and usability: - while "git-read-tree -m" or git-apply need to make sure that the paths involved in the merge do not have local modifications. This sacrifices performance for safety. - when git-checkout-index -f -q -u -a tries to see if it needs to checkout the paths. Otherwise you can never check anything out ;-). - when git-update-index --really-refresh (a new flag) tries to see if the index entry is up to date. You can start with everything marked as CE_VALID and run this once to drop CE_VALID bit for paths that are modified. Most notably, "update-index --refresh" honours CE_VALID and does not actively stat, so after you modified a file in the working tree, update-index --refresh would not notice until you tell the index about it with "git-update-index path" or "git-update-index --no-assume-unchanged path". This version is not expected to be perfect. I think diff between index and/or tree and working files may need some adjustment, and there probably needs other cases we should automatically unmark paths that are marked to be CE_VALID. But the basics seem to work, and ready to be tested by people who asked for this feature. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>

2006-01-28diff-files: -c and --cc options.Junio C Hamano

2005-11-30diff-files: show diffs with stage0 and unmerged stage at the same time.Junio C Hamano
After thinking about it more, I realized that much of the change I did on top of Linus' version does not make much sense. This commit reverts it so that it by default shows diffs with stage0 paths or stage2 paths with working tree; the unmerged stage to use can be overridden with -1/-2/-3 option (-2 is the default so essentially is a no-op). When the index file is unmerged, we are by definition in the middle of a conflicting merge, and we should show the diff with stage 2 by default. More importantly, paths without conflicts are updated in the working tree and collapsed to stage0 in the index, so showing diff with stage0 at the same time does not hurt. In normal cases, stage0 entries should be in sync with the working tree files and does not clutter the output. It even helps the user to realize that the working tree has local changes unrelated to the merge and remember to be careful not to do a "git-commit -a" after resolving the conflicts. When there is no unmerged entries, giving diff_unmerged_stage a default value of 2 does not cause any harm, because it would not be used anyway. So in all, always showing diff between stage0 paths and unmerged entries from a stage (defaulting to 2) is the right thing to do, as Linus originally did.

2005-11-30diff-files: -1/-2/-3 to diff against unmerged stage.Linus Torvalds
While resolving conflicted merge, it was not easy to compare the working tree file with unmerged index entries. This commit introduces new options -1/-2/-3 (with synonyms --base, --ours, and --theirs) to compare working tree files with specified stages. When none of these options are given, the command defaults to -2 if the index file is unmerged, otherwise it acts as before.

2005-10-12Use core.filemode.Junio C Hamano
With "[core] filemode = false", you can tell git to ignore differences in the working tree file only in executable bit. * "git-update-index --refresh" does not say "needs update" if index entry and working tree file differs only in executable bit. * "git-update-index" on an existing path takes executable bit from the existing index entry, if the path and index entry are both regular files. * "git-diff-files" and "git-diff-index" without --cached flag pretend the path on the filesystem has the same executable bit as the existing index entry, if the path and index entry are both regular files. If you are on a filesystem with unreliable mode bits, you may need to force the executable bit after registering the path in the index. * "git-update-index --chmod=+x foo" flips the executable bit of the index file entry for path "foo" on. Use "--chmod=-x" to flip it off. Note that --chmod only works in index file and does not look at nor update the working tree. So if you are on a filesystem and do not have working executable bit, you would do: 1. set the appropriate .git/config option; 2. "git-update-index --add new-file.c" 3. "git-ls-files --stage new-file.c" to see if it has the desired mode bits. If not, e.g. to drop executable bit picked up from the filesystem, say "git-update-index --chmod=-x new-file.c".

2005-10-10Add ".git/config" file parserLinus Torvalds
This is a first cut at a very simple parser for a git config file. The format of the file is a simple ini-file like thing, with simple variable/value pairs. You can (and should) make the variables have a simple single-level scope, ie a valid file looks something like this: # # This is the config file, and # a '#' or ';' character indicates # a comment # ; core variables [core] ; Don't trust file modes filemode = false ; Our diff algorithm [diff] external = "/usr/local/bin/gnu-diff -u" renames = true which parses into three variables: "core.filemode" is associated with the string "false", and "diff.external" gets the appropriate quoted value. Right now we only react to one variable: "core.filemode" is a boolean that decides if we should care about the 0100 (user-execute) bit of the stat information. Even that is just a parsing demonstration - this doesn't actually implement that st_mode compare logic itself. Different programs can react to different config options, although they should always fall back to calling "git_default_config()" on any config option name that they don't recognize.

2005-08-17[PATCH] Make "git diff" work inside relative subdirectoriesLinus Torvalds

2005-06-13[PATCH] Add --diff-filter= output restriction to diff-* family.Junio C Hamano
This is a halfway between debugging aid and a helper to write an ultra-smart merge scripts. The new option takes a string that consists of a list of "status" letters, and limits the diff output to only those classes of changes, with two exceptions: - A broken pair (aka "complete rewrite"), does not match D (deleted) or N (created). Use B to look for them. - The letter "A" in the diff-filter string does not match anything itself, but causes the entire diff that contains selected patches to be output (this behaviour is similar to that of --pickaxe-all for the -S option). For example, $ git-rev-list HEAD | git-diff-tree --stdin -s -v -B -C --diff-filter=BCR shows a list of commits that have complete rewrite, copy, or rename.

2005-06-03[PATCH] diff: Fix docs and add -O to diff-helper.Junio C Hamano
This patch updates diff documentation and usage strings: - clarify the semantics of -R. It is not "output in reverse"; rather, it is "I will feed diff backwards". Semantically they are different when -C is involved. - describe -O in usage strings of diff-* brothers. It was implemented, documented but not described in usage text. Also it adds -O to diff-helper. Like -S (and unlike -M/-C/-B), this option can work on sanitized diff-raw output produced by the diff-* brothers. While we are at it, the call it makes to diffcore is cleaned up to use the diffcore_std() like everybody else, and the declaration for the low level diffcore routines are moved from diff.h (public) to diffcore.h (private between diff.c and diffcore backends).

2005-06-01[PATCH] diff: mode bits fixesJunio C Hamano
The core GIT repository has trees that record regular file mode in 0664 instead of normalized 0644 pattern. Comparing such a tree with another tree that records the same file in 0644 pattern without content changes with git-diff-tree causes it to feed otherwise unmodified pairs to the diff_change() routine, which triggers a sanity check routine and barfs. This patch fixes the problem, along with the fix to another caller that uses unnormalized mode bits to call diff_change() routine in a similar way. Without this patch, you will see "fatal error" from diff-tree when you run git-deltafy-script on the core GIT repository itself.

2005-05-30[PATCH] Add -B flag to diff-* brothers.Junio C Hamano
A new diffcore transformation, diffcore-break.c, is introduced. When the -B flag is given, a patch that represents a complete rewrite is broken into a deletion followed by a creation. This makes it easier to review such a complete rewrite patch. The -B flag takes the same syntax as the -M and -C flags to specify the minimum amount of non-source material the resulting file needs to have to be considered a complete rewrite, and defaults to 99% if not specified. As the new test t4008-diff-break-rewrite.sh demonstrates, if a file is a complete rewrite, it is broken into a delete/create pair, which can further be subjected to the usual rename detection if -M or -C is used. For example, if file0 gets completely rewritten to make it as if it were rather based on file1 which itself disappeared, the following happens: The original change looks like this: file0 --> file0' (quite different from file0) file1 --> /dev/null After diffcore-break runs, it would become this: file0 --> /dev/null /dev/null --> file0' file1 --> /dev/null Then diffcore-rename matches them up: file1 --> file0' The internal score values are finer grained now. Earlier maximum of 10000 has been raised to 60000; there is no user visible changes but there is no reason to waste available bits.

This changes the way how pathspec is used in the three diff-* brothers. Earlier, they tried to grab as much information from the original input and used pathspec to limit the output. This version uses pathspec upfront to narrow the world diffcore operates in, so "git-diff-* <arguments> some-directory" does not look at things outside the specified subtree when finding rename/copy or running pickaxe. Since diff-tree already takes this view and does not feed anything outside the specified directotires to begin with, this patch does not have to touch that command.

2005-05-21[PATCH] Introducing software archaeologist's tool "pickaxe".Junio C Hamano
This steals the "pickaxe" feature from JIT and make it available to the bare Plumbing layer. From the command line, the user gives a string he is intersted in. Using the diff-core infrastructure previously introduced, it filters the differences to limit the output only to the diffs between <src> and <dst> where the string appears only in one but not in the other. For example: $ ./git-rev-list HEAD | ./git-diff-tree -Sdiff-tree-helper --stdin -M would show the diffs that touch the string "diff-tree-helper". In real software-archaeologist application, you would typically look for a few to several lines of code and see where that code came from. The "pickaxe" module runs after "rename/copy detection" module, so it even crosses the file rename boundary, as the above example demonstrates.

The purpose of the diff-core layer is to provide an infrastructure to transform the set of differences sent from the applications, before sending them to the external diff interface. The recently introduced rename detection code has been rewritten to use the diff-core facility. When applications send in separate creates and deletes, matching ones are transformed into a single rename-and-edit diff, and sent out to the external diff interface as such. This patch also enhances the rename detection code further to be able to detect copies. Currently this happens only as long as copy sources appear as part of the modified files, but there already is enough provision for callers to report unmodified files to diff-core, so that they can be also used as copy source candidates. Extending the callers this way will be done in a separate patch. Please see and marvel at how well this works by trying out the newly added t/t4003-diff-rename-1.sh test script.

Fix various things that sparse complains about: - use NULL instead of 0 - make sure we declare everything properly, or mark it static - use proper function declarations ("fn(void)" instead of "fn()") Sparse is always right.
2005-05-20[PATCH] Diff-files fix with more tests.Junio C Hamano
The same check we added earlier to update-cache to catch ENOTDIR turns out to be missing from diff-files. This causes a difference not being reported when you have DF/DF (a file in a subdirectory) in the cache and DF is a file on the filesystem.
