2005-05-23[PATCH] diff-raw format update take #2.Junio C Hamano
This changes the diff-raw format again, following the mailing list discussion. The new format explicitly expresses which one is a rename and which one is a copy. The documentation and tests are updated to match this change. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-05-23[PATCH] NUL terminate diff-tree header lines under -z.Junio C Hamano
Thomas Glanzmann noticed that diff-tree -z HEAD piped to diff-helper -z did not work. Since diff-helper -z expects NUL terminated lines, we should generate such. The output side of the diff-helper should always be using '\n' termination; earlier it used the same line_termination used for the input side, which was a mistake.

2005-05-22Include file cleanups..Linus Torvalds
Add <limits.h> to the include files handled by "cache.h", and remove extraneous #include directives from various .c files. The rule is that "cache.h" gets all the basic stuff, so that we'll have as few system dependencies as possible.
2005-05-22[PATCH] Diffcore updates.Junio C Hamano
This moves the path selection logic from individual programs to a new diffcore transformer (diff-tree still needs to have its own for performance reasons). Also the header printing code in diff-tree was tweaked not to produce anything when pickaxe is in effect and there is nothing interesting to report. An interesting example is the following in the GIT archive itself: $ git-whatchanged -p -C -S'or something in a real script' Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-05-22[PATCH] The diff-raw format updates.Junio C Hamano
Update the diff-raw format as Linus and I discussed, except that it does not use sequence of underscore '_' letters to express nonexistence. All '0' mode is used for that purpose instead. The new diff-raw format can express rename/copy, and the earlier restriction that -M and -C _must_ be used with the patch format output is no longer necessary. The patch makes -M and -C flags independent of -p flag, so you need to say git-whatchanged -M -p to get the diff/patch format. Updated are both documentations and tests.

2005-05-22[PATCH] Prepare diffcore interface for diff-tree header supression.Junio C Hamano
This does not actually supress the extra headers when pickaxe is used, but prepares enough support for diff-tree to implement it. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>

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.

2005-05-21[PATCH] Diff overhaul, adding half of copy detection.Junio C Hamano
This introduces the diff-core, the layer between the diff-tree family and the external diff interface engine. The calls to the interface diff-tree family uses (diff_change and diff_addremove) have not changed and will not change. 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.

2005-05-20sparse cleanupLinus Torvalds
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 overhaulJunio C Hamano
This cleans up the way calls are made into the diff core from diff-tree family and diff-helper. Earlier, these programs had "if (generating_patch)" sprinkled all over the place, but those ugliness are gone and handled uniformly from the diff core, even when not generating patch format. This also allowed diff-cache and diff-files to acquire -R (reverse) option to generate diff in reverse. Users of diff-tree can swap two trees easily so I did not add -R there. [ Linus' note: I'll add -R to "diff-tree" too, since a "commit diff" doesn't have another tree to switch around: the other tree is always the parent(s) of the commit ] Also -M<digits-as-mantissa> suggestion made by Linus has been implemented. Documentation updates are also included. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-05-19[PATCH] Detect renames in diff family.Junio C Hamano
This rips out the rename detection engine from diff-helper and moves it to the diff core, and updates the internal calling convention used by diff-tree family into the diff core. In order to give the same option name to diff-tree family as well as to diff-helper, I've changed the earlier diff-helper '-r' option to '-M' (stands for Move; sorry but the natural abbreviation 'r' for 'rename' is already taken for 'recursive'). Although I did a fair amount of test with the git-diff-tree with existing rename commits in the core GIT repository, this should still be considered beta (preview) release. This patch depends on the diff-delta infrastructure just committed. This implements almost everything I wanted to see in this series of patch, except a few minor cleanups in the calling convention into diff core, but that will be a separate cleanup patch.

2005-05-18[PATCH] Diff-helper updateJunio C Hamano
This patch adds a framework and a stub implementation of rename detection to diff-helper program. The current stub code is just enough to detect pure renames in diff-tree output and not fancier. The plan is perhaps to use the same delta code when Nico's delta storage patch is merged for similarity evaluation purposes.

2005-05-15[PATCH 3/3] Rename git-diff-tree-helper to git-diff-helper (part 2).Junio C Hamano
It used to be that diff-tree needed helper support to parse its raw output to generate diffs, but these days git-diff-* family produces the same output and the helper is not tied to diff-tree anymore. Drop "tree" from its name. This follows the "rename only" commit to adjust the contents of the files involved. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net> Signed-off-by: Petr Baudis <pasky@ucw.cz>
