2019-02-24diff: reuse diff setup for --no-index caseJeff King
When "--no-index" is in effect (or implied by the arguments), git-diff jumps early to a special code path to perform that diff. This means we miss out on some settings like enabling --ext-diff and --textconv by default. Let's jump to the no-index path _after_ we've done more setup on rev.diffopt. Since some of the options don't affect us (e.g., items related to the index), let's re-order the setup into two blocks (see the in-code comments). Note that we also need to stop re-initializing the diffopt struct in diff_no_index(). This should not be necessary, as it will already have been initialized by cmd_diff() (and there are no other callers). That in turn lets us drop the "repository" argument from diff_no_index (which never made much sense, since the whole point is that you don't need a repository).

2017-03-21prefix_filename: return newly allocated stringJeff King
The prefix_filename() function returns a pointer to static storage, which makes it easy to use dangerously. We already fixed one buggy caller in hash-object recently, and the calls in apply.c are suspicious (I didn't dig in enough to confirm that there is a bug, but we call the function once in apply_all_patches() and then again indirectly from parse_chunk()). Let's make it harder to get wrong by allocating the return value. For simplicity, we'll do this even when the prefix is empty (and we could just return the original file pointer). That will cause us to allocate sometimes when we wouldn't otherwise need to, but this function isn't called in performance critical code-paths (and it already _might_ allocate on any given call, so a caller that cares about performance is questionable anyway). The downside is that the callers need to remember to free() the result to avoid leaking. Most of them already used xstrdup() on the result, so we know they are OK. The remainder have been converted to use free() as appropriate. I considered retaining a prefix_filename_unsafe() for cases where we know the static lifetime is OK (and handling the cleanup is awkward). This is only a handful of cases, though, and it's not worth the mental energy in worrying about whether the "unsafe" variant is OK to use in any situation.

2017-03-21prefix_filename: drop length parameterJeff King
This function takes the prefix as a ptr/len pair, but in every caller the length is exactly strlen(ptr). Let's simplify the interface and just take the string. This saves callers specifying it (and in some cases handling a NULL prefix). In a handful of cases we had the length already without calling strlen, so this is technically slower. But it's not likely to matter (after all, if the prefix is non-empty we'll allocate and copy it into a buffer anyway). Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

Use the macro SWAP to exchange the value of pairs of variables instead of swapping them manually with the help of a temporary variable. The resulting code is shorter and easier to read. The two cases were not transformed by the semantic patch swap.cocci because it's extra careful and handles only cases where the types of all variables are the same -- and here we swap two ints and use an unsigned temporary variable for that. Nevertheless the conversion is safe, as the value range is preserved with and without the patch. Signed-off-by: Rene Scharfe <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2016-09-13diff: handle --no-index prefixes consistentlyJeff King
If we see an explicit "git diff --no-index ../foo ../bar", then we do not set up the git repository at all (we already know we are in --no-index mode, so do not have to check "are we in a repository?"), and hence have no "prefix" within the repository. A patch generated by this command will have the filenames "a/../foo" and "b/../bar", no matter which directory we are in with respect to any repository. However, in the implicit case, where we notice that the files are outside the repository, we will have chdir()'d to the top-level of the repository. We then feed the prefix back to the diff machinery. As a result, running the same diff from a subdirectory will result in paths that look like "a/subdir/../../foo". Besides being unnecessarily long, this may also be confusing to the user: they don't care about the subdir or the repository at all; it's just where they happened to be when running the command. We should treat this the same as the explicit --no-index case. One way to address this would be to chdir() back to the original path before running our diff. However, that's a bit hacky, as we would also need to adjust $GIT_DIR, which could be a relative path from our top-level. Instead, we can reuse the diff machinery's RELATIVE_NAME option, which automatically strips off the prefix. Note that this _also_ restricts the diff to this relative prefix, but that's OK for our purposes: we queue our own diff pairs manually, and do not rely on that part of the diff code.

2015-10-05use strbuf_complete to conditionally append slashJeff King
When working with paths in strbufs, we frequently want to ensure that a directory contains a trailing slash before appending to it. We can shorten this code (and make the intent more obvious) by calling strbuf_complete. Most of these cases are trivially identical conversions, but there are two things to note: - in a few cases we did not check that the strbuf is non-empty (which would lead to an out-of-bounds memory access). These were generally not triggerable in practice, either from earlier assertions, or typically because we would have just fed the strbuf to opendir(), which would choke on an empty path. - in a few cases we indexed the buffer with "original_len" or similar, rather than the current sb->len, and it is not immediately obvious from the diff that they are the same. In all of these cases, I manually verified that the strbuf does not change between the assignment and the strbuf_complete call. This does not convert cases which look like: if (sb->len && !is_dir_sep(sb->buf[sb->len - 1])) strbuf_addch(sb, '/'); as those are obviously semantically different. Some of these cases arguably should be doing that, but that is out of scope for this change, which aims purely for cleanup with no behavior change (and at least it will make such sites easier to find and examine in the future, as we can grep for strbuf_complete).

2015-03-26diff-no-index: align D/F handling with that of normal GitJunio C Hamano
When a commit changes a path P that used to be a file to a directory and creates a new path P/X in it, "git show" would say that file P was removed and file P/X was created for such a commit. However, if we compare two directories, D1 and D2, where D1 has a file D1/P in it and D2 has a directory D2/P under which there is a file D2/P/X, and ask "git diff --no-index D1 D2" to show their differences, we simply get a refusal "file/directory conflict". Surely, that may be what GNU diff does, but we can do better and it is easy to do so. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2015-03-26diff-no-index: DWIM "diff D F" into "diff D/F F"Junio C Hamano
"git diff --no-index" was supposed to be a poor-man's approach to allow using Git diff goodies outside of a Git repository, without having to patch mainstream diff implementations. Unlike a POSIX diff that treats "diff D F" (or "diff F D") as a request to compare D/F and F (or F and D/F) when D is a directory and F is a file, however, we did not accept such a command line and instead barfed with "file/directory conflict". Imitate what POSIX diff does and append the basename of the file after the name of the directory before comparing. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2014-03-31diff-no-index: correctly diagnose error return from diff_opt_parse()Junio C Hamano
diff_opt_parse() returns the number of options parsed, or often returns error() which is defined to return -1. Yes, return value of 0 is "I did not process that option at all", which should cause the caller to say that, but negative return should not be forgotten. This bug caused "diff --no-index" to infinitely show the same error message because the returned value was used to decrement the loop control variable, e.g. $ git diff --no-index --color=words a b error: option `color' expects "always", "auto", or "never" error: option `color' expects "always", "auto", or "never" ...

2012-07-29diff: do not use null sha1 as a sentinel valueJeff King
The diff code represents paths using the diff_filespec struct. This struct has a sha1 to represent the sha1 of the content at that path, as well as a sha1_valid member which indicates whether its sha1 field is actually useful. If sha1_valid is not true, then the filespec represents a working tree file (e.g., for the no-index case, or for when the index is not up-to-date). The diff_filespec is only used internally, though. At the interfaces to the diff subsystem, callers feed the sha1 directly, and we create a diff_filespec from it. It's at that point that we look at the sha1 and decide whether it is valid or not; callers may pass the null sha1 as a sentinel value to indicate that it is not. We should not typically see the null sha1 coming from any other source (e.g., in the index itself, or from a tree). However, a corrupt tree might have a null sha1, which would cause "diff --patch" to accidentally diff the working tree version of a file instead of treating it as a blob. This patch extends the edges of the diff interface to accept a "sha1_valid" flag whenever we accept a sha1, and to use that flag when creating a filespec. In some cases, this means passing the flag through several layers, making the code change larger than would be desirable. One alternative would be to simply die() upon seeing corrupted trees with null sha1s. However, this fix more directly addresses the problem (while bogus sha1s in a tree are probably a bad thing, it is really the sentinel confusion sending us down the wrong code path that is what makes it devastating). And it means that git is more capable of examining and debugging these corrupted trees. For example, you can still "diff --raw" such a tree to find out when the bogus entry was introduced; you just cannot do a "--patch" diff (just as you could not with any other corrupted tree, as we do not have any content to diff).

changes When running 'git diff --quiet <file1> <file2>', if file1 or file2 is outside the repository, it will exit(0) even if the files differ. It should exit(1) when they differ. This happens because 'diff_no_index' looks at the 'found_changes' member from 'diff_options' to determine if changes were made. This is the wrong thing to do, since it is only set if xdiff is actually run and it finds a change (the diff machinery will optimize out the xdiff call when it is not necessary) and in that case HAS_CHANGED flag needs to be taken into account.

2012-06-15do not run pager with diff --no-index --quietJeff King
There is no point in running a pager when --quiet is given, since we are producing no output. The regular diff code path handles this already, because --quiet implies --exit-code, and we check for --exit-code when deciding not to run the pager. However, the "quiet implies exit-code" logic is done in diff_setup_done, and the no-index code path sets up its pager before running diff_setup_done, and misses this case. We can fix this by reordering our initialization. Currently we do: 1. read command line arguments into diff_options 2. Set pager if EXIT_CODE not requested 3. always set EXIT_CODE, since we are emulating traditional diff 4. call diff_setup_done We can fix the problem by moving pager initialization (step 2) after step 4. But step 3 must come after step 2 (since we want to know whether the _user_ requested --exit-code, not whether we turned it on unconditionally). So we must move both.

2012-06-15fix pager.diff with diff --no-indexJeff King
git-diff does not rely on the git wrapper to setup its pager; instead, it sets it up on its own after seeing whether --quiet or --exit-code has been specified. After diff_no_index was split off from cmd_diff, commit b3fde6c (git diff --no-index: default to page like other diff frontends, 2008-05-26) duplicated the one-liner from cmd_diff to turn on the pager. Later, commit 8f0359f (Allow pager of diff command be enabled/disabled, 2008-07-21) taught the the version in cmd_diff to respect the pager.diff config, but the version in diff_no_index was left behind. This meant that git -c pager.diff=0 diff a b would not use a pager, but git -c pager.diff=0 diff --no-index a b would. Let's fix it by factoring out a common function. While we're there, let's update the antiquated comment, which claims that the pager interferes with propagating the exit code; this has not been the case since ea27a18 (spawn pager via run_command interface, 2008-07-22).

2012-05-16diff --no-index: don't leak buffers in queue_diffBobby Powers
queue_diff uses two strbufs, and at the end of the function strbuf_reset was called. This only reset the length of the buffer - any allocated memory was leaked. Using strbuf_release fixes this. Signed-off-by: Bobby Powers <> Reviewed-by: René Scharfe <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2012-05-16diff --no-index: reset temporary buffer lengths on directory iterationBobby Powers
Commit 875b91b (diff --no-index: use strbuf for temporary pathnames, 2012-04-25) introduced a regression when using diff --no-index with directories. When iterating through a directory, the switch to strbuf from heap-allocated char arrays caused paths to form like 'dir/file1', 'dir/file1file2', rather than 'dir/file1', 'dir/file2' as expected. Avoid this by resetting the paths variables to their original length before each iteration. Signed-off-by: Bobby Powers <> Reviewed-by: René Scharfe <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

Instead of using limited-length buffers and risking of pathname truncation, we should be taking advantage of strbuf API nowadays. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
