2021-05-11diff.h: move pickaxe fields together againÆvar Arnfjörð Bjarmason
Move the pickaxe and pickaxe_opts fields next to each other again. In a past life they'd been on adjacent lines, but when they got moved from a global variable to the diff_options struct in 6b5ee137e5 (Diff clean-up., 2005-09-21) they got split apart. That split made sense at the time, the "char*" and "int" (flags) options were being grouped, but we've long since abandoned that pattern in the diff_options struct, and now it makes more sense to group these together again.

2021-05-11pickaxe: die when --find-object and --pickaxe-all are combinedÆvar Arnfjörð Bjarmason
Neither the --pickaxe-all documentation nor --find-object's has ever suggested that you can combine the two. See f506b8e8b5 (git log/diff: add -G<regexp> that greps in the patch text, 2010-08-23) and 15af58c1ad (diffcore: add a pickaxe option to find a specific blob, 2018-01-04). But we've silently tolerated it, which makes the logic in diffcore_pickaxe() harder to reason about. Let's assert that we won't have the two combined.

2021-05-11pickaxe: die when -G and --pickaxe-regex are combinedÆvar Arnfjörð Bjarmason
When the -G and --pickaxe-regex options are combined we simply ignore the --pickaxe-regex option. Let's die instead as suggested by our documentation, since -G is always a regex. When --pickaxe-regex was added in d01d8c6782 (Support for pickaxe matching regular expressions, 2006-03-29) only the -S option existed. Then when -G was added in f506b8e8b5 (git log/diff: add -G<regexp> that greps in the patch text, 2010-08-23) neither the documentation for --pickaxe-regex was updated accordingly, nor was something like this assertion added. Since 5bc3f0b567 (diffcore-pickaxe doc: document -S and -G properly, 2013-05-31) we've claimed that --pickaxe-regex should only be used with -S, but have silently tolerated combining it with -G, let's die instead.

2021-02-16diff: --{rotate,skip}-to=<path>Junio C Hamano
In the implementation of "git difftool", there is a case where the user wants to start viewing the diffs at a specific path and continue on to the rest, optionally wrapping around to the beginning. Since it is somewhat cumbersome to implement such a feature as a post-processing step of "git diff" output, let's support it internally with two new options. - "git diff --rotate-to=C", when the resulting patch would show paths A B C D E without the option, would "rotate" the paths to shows patch to C D E A B instead. It is an error when there is no patch for C is shown. - "git diff --skip-to=C" would instead "skip" the paths before C, and shows patch to C D E. Again, it is an error when there is no patch for C is shown. - "git log [-p]" also accepts these two options, but it is not an error if there is no change to the specified path. Instead, the set of output paths are rotated or skipped to the specified path or the first path that sorts after the specified path. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2021-02-11diff: add an API for deferred freeingÆvar Arnfjörð Bjarmason
Add a diff_free() function to free anything we may have allocated in the "diff_options" struct, and the ability to make calling it a noop by setting "no_free" in "diff_options". This is required because when e.g. "git diff" is run we'll allocate things in that struct, use the diff machinery once, and then exit. But if we run e.g. "git log -p" we're going to re-use what we allocated across multiple diff_flush() calls, and only want to free things at the end. We've thus ended up with features like the recently added "diff -I"[1] where we'll leak memory. As it turns out it could have simply used the pattern established in 6ea57703f6 (log: prepare log/log-tree to reuse the diffopt.close_file attribute, 2016-06-22). Manually adding more such flags to things log_tree_commit() every time we need to allocate something would be tedious. Let's instead move that fclose() code it to a new diff_free(), in anticipation of freeing more things in that function in follow-up commits. Some functions such as log_tree_commit() need an idiom of optionally retaining a previous "no_free", as they may either free the memory themselves, or their caller may do so. I'm keeping that idiom in log_show_early() for good measure, even though I don't think it's currently called in this manner. It also gets passed an existing "struct rev_info", so future callers may want to set the "no_free" flag. This change is a bit hard to read because while the freeing pattern we're introducing isn't unusual, the "file" member is a special snowflake. We usually don't want to fclose() it. This is because "file" is usually stdout, in which case we don't want to fclose() it. We only want to opt-in to closing it when we e.g. open a file on the filesystem. Thus the opt-in "close_file" flag. So the API in general just needs a "no_free" flag to defer freeing, but the "file" member still needs its "close_file" flag. This is made more confusing because while refactoring this code we could replace some "close_file=0" with "no_free=1", whereas others need to set both flags. This is because there were some cases where an existing "close_file=0" meant "let's defer deallocation", and others where it meant "we don't want to close this file handle at all". 1. 296d4a94e7 (diff: add -I<regex> that ignores matching changes, 2020-10-20) Signed-off-by: Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

"git diff" showed a submodule working tree with untracked cruft as "Submodule commit <objectname>-dirty", but a natural expectation is that the "-dirty" indicator would align with "git describe --dirty", which does not consider having untracked files in the working tree as source of dirtiness.

Git diff reports a submodule directory as -dirty even when there are only untracked files in the submodule directory. This is inconsistent with what `git describe --dirty` says when run in the submodule directory in that state. Make `--ignore-submodules=untracked` the default for `git diff` when there is no configuration variable or command line option, so that the command would not give '-dirty' suffix to a submodule whose working tree has untracked files, to make it consistent with `git describe --dirty` that is run in the submodule working tree. And also make `--ignore-submodules=none` the default for `git status` so that the user doesn't end up deleting a submodule that has uncommitted (untracked) files.

2020-10-20diff: add -I<regex> that ignores matching changesMichał Kępień
Add a new diff option that enables ignoring changes whose all lines (changed, removed, and added) match a given regular expression. This is similar to the -I/--ignore-matching-lines option in standalone diff utilities and can be used e.g. to ignore changes which only affect code comments or to look for unrelated changes in commits containing a large number of automatically applied modifications (e.g. a tree-wide string replacement). The difference between -G/-S and the new -I option is that the latter filters output on a per-change basis. Use the 'ignore' field of xdchange_t for marking a change as ignored or not. Since the same field is used by --ignore-blank-lines, identical hunk emitting rules apply for --ignore-blank-lines and -I. These two options can also be used together in the same git invocation (they are complementary to each other). Rename xdl_mark_ignorable() to xdl_mark_ignorable_lines(), to indicate that it is logically a "sibling" of xdl_mark_ignorable_regex() rather than its "parent".

Even diff's `...` notation doesn't allow this because it only works between commits.

2020-09-17bloom/diff: properly short-circuit on max_changesDerrick Stolee
Commit e3696980 (diff: halt tree-diff early after max_changes, 2020-03-30) intended to create a mechanism to short-circuit a diff calculation after a certain number of paths were modified. By incrementing a "num_changes" counter throughout the recursive ll_diff_tree_paths(), this was supposed to match the number of changes that would be written into the changed-path Bloom filters. Unfortunately, this was not implemented correctly and instead misses simple cases like file modifications. This then does not stop very large changed-path filters from being written (unless they add or remove many files). To start, change the implementation in ll_diff_tree_paths() to instead use the global diff_queue_diff struct's 'nr' member as the count. This is a way to simplify the logic instead of making more mistakes in the complicated diff code. This has a drawback: the diff_queue_diff struct only lists the paths corresponding to blob changes, not their leading directories. Thus, get_or_compute_bloom_filter() needs an additional check to see if the hashmap with the leading directories becomes too large. One reason why this was not caught by test cases was that the test in that was supposed to check this "too many changes" condition only checked this on the initial commit of a repository. The old logic counted these values correctly. Update this test in a few ways: 1. Use GIT_TEST_BLOOM_SETTINGS_MAX_CHANGED_PATHS to reduce the limit, allowing smaller commits to engage with this logic. 2. Create several interesting cases of edits, adds, removes, and mode changes (in the second commit). By testing both sides of the inequality with the *_MAX_CHANGED_PATHS variable, we can see that the count is exactly correct, so none of these changes are missed or over-counted. 3. Use the trace2 data value filter_found_large to verify that these commits are on the correct side of the limit. Another way to verify the behavior is correct is through performance tests. By testing on my local copies of the Git repository and the Linux kernel repository, I could measure the effect of these short-circuits when computing a fresh commit-graph file with changed-path Bloom filters using the command GIT_TEST_BLOOM_SETTINGS_MAX_CHANGED_PATHS=N time \ git commit-graph write --reachable --changed-paths and reporting the wall time and resulting commit-graph size. For Git, the results are | | N=1 | N=10 | N=512 | |--------|----------------|----------------|----------------| | HEAD~1 | 10.90s 9.18MB | 11.11s 9.34MB | 11.31s 9.35MB | | HEAD | 9.21s 8.62MB | 11.11s 9.29MB | 11.29s 9.34MB | For Linux, the results are | | N=1 | N=20 | N=512 | |--------|----------------|---------------|---------------| | HEAD~1 | 61.28s 64.3MB | 76.9s 72.6MB | 77.6s 72.6MB | | HEAD | 49.44s 56.3MB | 68.7s 65.9MB | 69.2s 65.9MB | Naturally, the improvement becomes much less as the limit grows, as fewer commits satisfy the short-circuit.

2020-06-08diff.h: drop diff_tree_oid() & friends' return valueSZEDER Gábor
ll_diff_tree_oid() has only ever returned 0 [1], so it's return value is basically useless. It's only caller diff_tree_oid() has only ever returned the return value of ll_diff_tree_oid() as-is [2], so its return value is just as useless. Most of diff_tree_oid()'s callers simply ignore its return value, except: - diff_root_tree_oid() is a thin wrapper around diff_tree_oid() and returns with its return value, but all of diff_root_tree_oid()'s callers ignore its return value. - rev_compare_tree() and rev_same_tree_as_empty() do look at the return value in a condition, but, since the return value is always 0, the former's < 0 condition is never fulfilled, while the latter's >= 0 condition is always fulfilled. So let's drop the return value of ll_diff_tree_oid(), diff_tree_oid() and diff_root_tree_oid(), and drop those conditions from rev_compare_tree() and rev_same_tree_as_empty() as well. [1] ll_diff_tree_oid() and its ancestors have been returning only 0 ever since it was introduced as diff_tree() in 9174026cfe (Add "diff-tree" program to show which files have changed between two trees., 2005-04-09).

2020-03-30diff: halt tree-diff early after max_changesDerrick Stolee
When computing the changed-paths bloom filters for the commit-graph, we limit the size of the filter by restricting the number of paths in the diff. Instead of computing a large diff and then ignoring the result, it is better to halt the diff computation early. Create a new "max_changes" option in struct diff_options. If non-zero, then halt the diff computation after discovering strictly more changed paths. This includes paths corresponding to trees that change. Use this max_changes option in the bloom filter calculations. This reduces the time taken to compute the filters for the Linux kernel repo from 2m50s to 2m35s. On a large internal repository with ~500 commits that perform tree-wide changes, the time reduced from 6m15s to 3m48s.

Most number-related OPT_ macros store the value in an 'int' variable.

The problem was reported on s360x which is a big-endian architechture. The variable to store '-w' option in this case is xdl_opts, 'long' type, 8 bytes. But since parse_options() assumes 'int' (4 bytes), it will store bits in the wrong part of xdl_opts. The problem was found on little-endian platforms because parse_options() will accidentally store at the right part of xdl_opts. There aren't much to say about the type change (except that 'int' for xdl_opts should still be big enough, since Windows' long is the same size as 'int' and nobody has complained so far).

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).

The sole purpose of this function is to fix the sorting order of the queued diff entries. It doesn't need to know about any diff options, so we can drop the unused parameter. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2019-02-08log,diff-tree: add --combined-all-paths optionElijah Newren
The combined diff format for merges will only list one filename, even if rename or copy detection is active. For example, with raw format one might see: ::100644 100644 100644 fabadb8 cc95eb0 4866510 MM describe.c ::100755 100755 100755 52b7a2d 6d1ac04 d2ac7d7 RM ::100644 100644 100644 e07d6c5 9042e82 ee91881 RR phooey.c This doesn't let us know what the original name of was in the first parent, and doesn't let us know what either of the original names of phooey.c were in either of the parents. In contrast, for non-merge commits, raw format does provide original filenames (and a rename score to boot). In order to also provide original filenames for merge commits, add a --combined-all-paths option (which must be used with either -c or --cc, and is likely only useful with rename or copy detection active) so that we can print tab-separated filenames when renames are involved. This transforms the above output to: ::100644 100644 100644 fabadb8 cc95eb0 4866510 MM desc.c desc.c desc.c ::100755 100755 100755 52b7a2d 6d1ac04 d2ac7d7 RM ::100644 100644 100644 e07d6c5 9042e82 ee91881 RR fooey.c fuey.c phooey.c Further, in patch format, this changes the from/to headers so that instead of just having one "from" header, we get one for each parent. For example, instead of having --- a/phooey.c +++ b/phooey.c we would see --- a/fooey.c --- a/fuey.c +++ b/phooey.c Signed-off-by: Elijah Newren <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2019-01-28diff.c: prepare to use parse_options() for parsingNguyễn Thái Ngọc Duy
This is a preparation step to start using parse_options() to parse diff/revision options instead of what we have now. There are a couple of good things from using parse_options(): - better help usage - easier to add new options - better completion support - help usage generation - better integration with main command option parser. We can just concat the main command's option array and diffopt's together and parse all in one go. - detect colidding options (e.g. --reverse is used by revision code, so diff code can't use it as long name for -R) - consistent syntax, e.g. option that takes mandatory argument will now accept both "--option=value" and "--option value". The plan is migrate all diff/rev options to parse_options(). Then we could get rid of diff_opt_parse() and expose parseopts[] directly to the caller.

2019-01-28diff.h: avoid bit fields in struct diff_flagsNguyễn Thái Ngọc Duy
Bitfield addresses cannot be passed around in a pointer. This makes it hard to use parse-options to set/unset them. Turn this struct to normal integers. This of course increases the size of this struct multiple times, but since we only have a handful of diff_options variables around, memory consumption is not at all a concern.

Minor inconsistency fix. * sb/diff-color-moved-config-option-fixup: diff: align move detection error handling with other options
2018-11-14diff: align move detection error handling with other optionsStefan Beller
This changes the error handling for the options --color-moved-ws and --color-moved-ws to be like the rest of the options. Move the die() call out of parse_color_moved_ws into the parsing of command line options. As the function returns a bit field, change its signature to return an unsigned instead of an int; add a new bit to signal errors. Once the error is signaled, we discard the other bits, such that it doesn't matter if the error bit overlaps with any other bit. Signed-off-by: Stefan Beller <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
