2005-05-31[PATCH] Add -O<orderfile> option to diff-* brothers.Junio C Hamano
A new diffcore filter diffcore-order is introduced. This takes a text file each of whose line is a shell glob pattern. Patches that match a glob pattern on an earlier line in the file are output before patches that match a later line, and patches that do not match any glob pattern are output last. A typical orderfile for git project probably should look like this: README Makefile Documentation *.h *.c Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
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.

2005-05-30[PATCH] diff: consolidate various calls into diffcore.Junio C Hamano
The three diff-* brothers had a sequence of calls into diffcore that were almost identical. Introduce a new diffcore_std() function that takes all the necessary arguments to consolidate it. This will make later enhancements and changing the order of diffcore application simpler. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-05-29[PATCH] Optimize diff-tree -[CM] --stdinJunio C Hamano
This attempts to optimize "diff-tree -[CM] --stdin", which compares successible tree pairs. This optimization does not make much sense for other commands in the diff-* brothers. When reading from --stdin and using rename/copy detection, the patch makes diff-tree to read the current index file first. This is done to reuse the optimization used by diff-cache in the non-cached case. Similarity estimator can avoid expanding a blob if the index says what is in the work tree has an exact copy of that blob already expanded. Another optimization the patch makes is to check only file sizes first to terminate similarity estimation early. In order for this to work, it needs a way to tell the size of the blob without expanding it. Since an obvious way of doing it, which is to keep all the blobs previously used in the memory, is too costly, it does so by keeping the filesize for each object it has already seen in memory.

2005-05-29[PATCH] Add --pickaxe-all to diff-* brothers.Junio C Hamano
When --pickaxe-all is given in addition to -S, pickaxe shows the entire diffs contained in the changeset, not just the diffs for the filepair that touched the sought-after string. This is useful to see the changes in context. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-05-29[PATCH] Clean up diff_setup() to make it more extensible.Junio C Hamano
This changes the argument of diff_setup() from an integer that says if we are feeding reversed diff to a bitmask, so that later global options can be added more easily. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-05-24[PATCH] Fix diff-pruning logic which was running prune too early.Junio C Hamano
For later stages to reorder patches, pruning logic and rename detection logic should not decide which delete to discard (because another entry said it will take over the file as a rename) until the very end. Also fix some tests that were assuming the earlier "last one is rename or keep everything else is copy" semantics of diff-raw format, which no longer is true.

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>
2005-05-22[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

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.

2005-05-20[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 2/3] Rename git-diff-tree-helper to git-diff-helper.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 commit is done separately to record just the rename and no file content changes. The changes in the renamed files are recorded in the next commit.

2005-05-04Optimize diff-cache -p --cachedJunio C Hamano
This patch optimizes "diff-cache -p --cached" by avoiding to inflate blobs into temporary files when the blob recorded in the cache matches the corresponding file in the work tree. The file in the work tree is passed as the comparison source in such a case instead. This optimization kicks in only when we have already read the cache this optimization and this is deliberate. Especially, diff-tree does not use this code, because changes are contained in small number of files relative to the project size most of the time, and reading cache is so expensive for a large project that the cost of reading it outweighs the savings by not inflating blobs. Also this patch cleans up the structure passed from diff clients by removing one unused structure member. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>
2005-04-27[PATCH] Reworked external diff interface.Junio C Hamano
This introduces three public functions for diff-cache and friends can use to call out to the GIT_EXTERNAL_DIFF program when they wish to. A normal "add/remove/change" entry is turned into 7-parameter process invocation of GIT_EXTERNAL_DIFF program as before. In addition, the program can now be called with a single parameter when diff-cache and friends want to report an unmerged path.

2005-04-26[PATCH] Diff-tree-helper take two.Junio C Hamano
This reworks the diff-tree-helper and show-diff to further make external diff command interface simpler. These commands now honor GIT_EXTERNAL_DIFF environment variable which can point at an arbitrary program that takes 7 parameters: name file1 file1-sha1 file1-mode file2 file2-sha1 file2-mode The parameters for an external diff command are as follows: name this invocation of the command is to emit diff for the named cache/tree entry. file1 pathname that holds the contents of the first file. This can be a file inside the working tree, or a temporary file created from the blob object, or /dev/null. The command should not attempt to unlink it -- the temporary is unlinked by the caller. file1-sha1 sha1 hash if file1 is a blob object, or "." otherwise. file1-mode mode bits for file1, or "." for a deleted file. If GIT_EXTERNAL_DIFF environment variable is not set, the default is to invoke diff with the set of parameters old show-diff used to use. This built-in implementation honors the GIT_DIFF_CMD and GIT_DIFF_OPTS environment variables as before.

2005-04-26[PATCH] Split external diff command interface to a separate file.Junio C Hamano
With this patch, the non-core'ish part of show-diff command that invokes an external "diff" comand to obtain patches is split into a separate file. The next patch will introduce a new command, diff-tree-helper, which uses this common diff interface to format diff-tree and diff-cache output into a patch form.
