"git log -G<regex>" looked for a hunk in the "git log -p" patch output that contained a string that matches the given pattern. Optimize this code to ignore binary files, which by default will not show any hunk that would match any pattern (unless textconv or the --text option is in effect, that is). * tb/log-G-binary: log -G: ignore binary files

2018-12-26log -G: ignore binary filesThomas Braun
The -G<regex> option of log looks for the differences whose patch text contains added/removed lines that match regex. Currently -G looks also into patches of binary files (which according to [1]) is binary as well. This has a couple of issues: - It makes the pickaxe search slow. In a proprietary repository of the author with only ~5500 commits and a total .git size of ~300MB searching takes ~13 seconds $time git log -Gwave > /dev/null real 0m13,241s user 0m12,596s sys 0m0,644s whereas when we ignore binary files with this patch it takes ~4s $time ~/devel/git/git log -Gwave > /dev/null real 0m3,713s user 0m3,608s sys 0m0,105s which is a speedup of more than fourfold. - The internally used algorithm for generating patch text is based on xdiff and its states in [1] > The output format of the binary patch file is proprietary > (and binary) and it is basically a collection of copy and insert > commands [..] which means that the current format could change once the internal algorithm is changed as the format is not standardized. In addition the git binary patch format used for preparing patches for git apply is *different* from the xdiff format as can be seen by comparing git log -p -a commit 6e95bf4bafccf14650d02ab57f3affe669be10cf Author: A U Thor <> Date: Thu Apr 7 15:14:13 2005 -0700 modify binary file diff --git a/data.bin b/data.bin index f414c84..edfeb6f 100644 --- a/data.bin +++ b/data.bin @@ -1,2 +1,4 @@ a a^@a +a +a^@a with git log --binary commit 6e95bf4bafccf14650d02ab57f3affe669be10cf Author: A U Thor <> Date: Thu Apr 7 15:14:13 2005 -0700 modify binary file diff --git a/data.bin b/data.bin index f414c84bd3aa25fa07836bb1fb73db784635e24b..edfeb6f501[..] GIT binary patch literal 12 QcmYe~N@Pgn0zx1O01)N^ZvX%Q literal 6 NcmYe~N@Pgn0ssWg0XP5v which seems unexpected.

2018-11-05diff: avoid generating unused hunk header linesJeff King
Some callers of xdi_diff_outf() do not look at the generated hunk header lines at all. By plugging in a no-op hunk callback, this tells xdiff not to even bother formatting them. This patch introduces a stock no-op callback and uses it with a few callers whose line callbacks explicitly ignore hunk headers (because they look only for +/- lines).

2018-11-02xdiff-interface: provide a separate consume callback for hunksJeff King
The previous commit taught xdiff to optionally provide the hunk header data to a specialized callback. But most users of xdiff actually use our more convenient xdi_diff_outf() helper, which ensures that our callbacks are always fed whole lines. Let's plumb the special hunk-callback through this interface, too. It will follow the same rule as xdiff when the hunk callback is NULL (i.e., continue to pass a stringified hunk header to the line callback). Since we add NULL to each caller, there should be no behavior change yet. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2018-05-21regex: do not call `regfree()` if compilation failsMartin Ågren
It is apparently undefined behavior to call `regfree()` on a regex where `regcomp()` failed. The language in [1] is a bit muddy, at least to me, but the clearest hint is this (`preg` is the `regex_t *`): Upon successful completion, the regcomp() function shall return 0. Otherwise, it shall return an integer value indicating an error as described in <regex.h>, and the content of preg is undefined. Funnily enough, there is also the `regerror()` function which should be given a pointer to such a "failed" `regex_t` -- the content of which would supposedly be undefined -- and which may investigate it to come up with a detailed error message. In any case, the example in that document shows how `regfree()` is not called after `regcomp()` fails. We have quite a few users of this API and most get this right. These three users do not. Several implementations can handle this just fine [2] and these code paths supposedly have not wreaked havoc or we'd have heard about it. (These are all in code paths where git got bad input and is just about to die anyway.) But let's just avoid the issue altogether.

In f506b8e8b5 (git log/diff: add -G<regexp> that greps in the patch text, 2010-08-23) we were hesitant to check if the user requests both -S and -G at the same time.

2018-01-04diffcore: add a pickaxe option to find a specific blobStefan Beller
Sometimes users are given a hash of an object and they want to identify it further (ex.: Use verify-pack to find the largest blobs, but what are these? or [1]) One might be tempted to extend git-describe to also work with blobs, such that `git describe <blob-id>` gives a description as '<commit-ish>:<path>'. This was implemented at [2]; as seen by the sheer number of responses (>110), it turns out this is tricky to get right. The hard part to get right is picking the correct 'commit-ish' as that could be the commit that (re-)introduced the blob or the blob that removed the blob; the blob could exist in different branches. Junio hinted at a different approach of solving this problem, which this patch implements. Teach the diff machinery another flag for restricting the information to what is shown. For example: $ ./git log --oneline --find-object=v2.0.0:Makefile b2feb64309 Revert the whole "ask curl-config" topic for now 47fbfded53 i18n: only extract comments marked with "TRANSLATORS:" we observe that the Makefile as shipped with 2.0 was appeared in v1.9.2-471-g47fbfded53 and in v2.0.0-rc1-5-gb2feb6430b.

Fix for potential segv introduced in v2.11.0 and later (also v2.10.2). * js/regexec-buf: pickaxe: fix segfault with '-S<...> --pickaxe-regex'
2017-03-18pickaxe: fix segfault with '-S<...> --pickaxe-regex'SZEDER Gábor
'git {log,diff,...} -S<...> --pickaxe-regex' can segfault as a result of out-of-bounds memory reads. diffcore-pickaxe.c:contains() looks for all matches of the given regex in a buffer in a loop, advancing the buffer pointer to the end of the last match in each iteration. When we switched to REG_STARTEND in b7d36ffca (regex: use regexec_buf(), 2016-09-21), we started passing the size of that buffer to the regexp engine, too. Unfortunately, this buffer size is never updated on subsequent iterations, and as the buffer pointer advances on each iteration, this "bufptr+bufsize" points past the end of the buffer. This results in segmentation fault, if that memory can't be accessed. In case of 'git log' it can also result in erroneously listed commits, if the memory past the end of buffer is accessible and happens to contain data matching the regex. Reduce the buffer size on each iteration as the buffer pointer is advanced, thus maintaining the correct end of buffer location. Furthermore, make sure that the buffer pointer is not dereferenced in the control flow statements when we already reached the end of the buffer. The new test is flaky, I've never seen it fail on my Linux box even without the fix, but this is expected according to db5dfa3 (regex: -G<pattern> feeds a non NUL-terminated string to regexec() and fails, 2016-09-21). However, it did fail on Travis CI with the first (and incomplete) version of the fix, and based on that commit message I would expect the new test without the fix to fail most of the time on Windows.

2016-09-26Merge branch 'js/regexec-buf'Junio C Hamano
Some codepaths in "git diff" used regexec(3) on a buffer that was mmap(2)ed, which may not have a terminating NUL, leading to a read beyond the end of the mapped region. This was fixed by introducing a regexec_buf() helper that takes a <ptr,len> pair with REG_STARTEND extension. * js/regexec-buf: regex: use regexec_buf() regex: add regexec_buf() that can work on a non NUL-terminated string regex: -G<pattern> feeds a non NUL-terminated string to regexec() and fails
2016-09-21regex: use regexec_buf()Johannes Schindelin
The new regexec_buf() function operates on buffers with an explicitly specified length, rather than NUL-terminated strings. We need to use this function whenever the buffer we want to pass to regexec(3) may have been mmap(2)ed (and is hence not NUL-terminated). Note: the original motivation for this patch was to fix a bug where `git diff -G <regex>` would crash. This patch converts more callers, though, some of which allocated to construct NUL-terminated strings, or worse, modified buffers to temporarily insert NULs while calling regexec(3). By converting them to use regexec_buf(), the code has become much cleaner. Signed-off-by: Johannes Schindelin <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2015-09-28react to errors in xdi_diffJeff King
When we call into xdiff to perform a diff, we generally lose the return code completely. Typically by ignoring the return of our xdi_diff wrapper, but sometimes we even propagate that return value up and then ignore it later. This can lead to us silently producing incorrect diffs (e.g., "git log" might produce no output at all, not even a diff header, for a content-level diff). In practice this does not happen very often, because the typical reason for xdiff to report failure is that it malloc() failed (it uses straight malloc, and not our xmalloc wrapper). But it could also happen when xdiff triggers one our callbacks, which returns an error (e.g., outf() in builtin/rerere.c tries to report a write failure in this way). And the next patch also plans to add more failure modes. Let's notice an error return from xdiff and react appropriately. In most of the diff.c code, we can simply die(), which matches the surrounding code (e.g., that is what we do if we fail to load a file for diffing in the first place). This is not that elegant, but we are probably better off dying to let the user know there was a problem, rather than simply generating bogus output. We could also just die() directly in xdi_diff, but the callers typically have a bit more context, and can provide a better message (and if we do later decide to pass errors up, we're one step closer to doing so). There is one interesting case, which is in diff_grep(). Here if we cannot generate the diff, there is nothing to match, and we silently return "no hits". This is actually what the existing code does already, but we make it a little more explicit. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

See if we have both sides that could be different in any interesting way, slurp the contents in core, possibly after applying textconv, inspect the contents, clean-up and report the result. The only difference between the two is how "inspect" step works. Unify this codeflow in a helper, pickaxe_match(), which takes a callback function that implements the specific "inspect" step.

2013-04-05diffcore-pickaxe: remove unnecessary call to get_textconv()Simon Ruderich
The fill_one() function is responsible for finding and filling the textconv filter as necessary, and is called by diff_grep() function that implements "git log -G<pattern>". The has_changes() function that implements "git log -S<block>" calls get_textconv() for two sides being compared, before it checks to see if it was asked to perform the pickaxe limiting. Move the code around to avoid this wastage. After has_changes() calls get_textconv() to obtain textconv for both sides, fill_one() is called to use them. By adding get_textconv() to diff_grep() and relieving fill_one() of responsibility to find the textconv filter, we can avoid calling get_textconv() twice in has_changes(). With this change it's also no longer necessary for fill_one() to modify the textconv argument, therefore pass a pointer instead of a pointer to a pointer.

2012-10-28pickaxe: use textconv for -S countingJeff King
We currently just look at raw blob data when using "-S" to pickaxe. This is mostly historical, as pickaxe predates the textconv feature. If the user has bothered to define a textconv filter, it is more likely that their search string will be on the textconv output, as that is what they will see in the diff (and we do not even provide a mechanism for them to search for binary needles that contain NUL characters). This patch teaches "-S" to use textconv, just as we already do for "-G". Signed-off-by: Jeff King <>
2012-10-28pickaxe: hoist empty needle checkJeff King

2012-10-28diff_grep: use textconv buffers for add/deleted filesJeff King
If you use "-G" to grep a diff, we will apply a configured textconv filter to the data before generating the diff. However, if the diff is an addition or deletion, we do not bother running the diff at all, and just look for the token in the added (or removed) content. This works because we know that the diff must contain every line of content. However, while we used the textconv-derived buffers in the regular diff, we accidentally passed the original unmodified buffers to regexec when checking the added or removed content. This could lead to an incorrect answer. Worse, in some cases we might have a textconv buffer but no original buffer (e.g., if we pulled the textconv data from cache, or if we reused a working tree file when generating it). In that case, we could actually feed NULL to regexec and segfault. Reported-by: Peter Oberndorfer <> Signed-off-by: Jeff King <>
2012-02-29pickaxe: allow -i to search in patch case-insensitivelyJunio C Hamano
"git log -S<string>" is a useful way to find the last commit in the codebase that touched the <string>. As it was designed to be used by a porcelain script to dig the history starting from a block of text that appear in the starting commit, it never had to look for anything but an exact match. When used by an end user who wants to look for the last commit that removed a string (e.g. name of a variable) that he vaguely remembers, however, it is useful to support case insensitive match. When given the "--regexp-ignore-case" (or "-i") option, which originally was designed to affect case sensitivity of the search done in the commit log part, e.g. "log --grep", the matches made with -S/-G pickaxe search is done case insensitively now.

We can use its member pickaxe to check if the needle is an empty string and use the kwsmatch structure to find out the length of the match instead. This change is done as a preparation to unify the signatures of has_changes() and diff_grep(), which will be used in the patch after the next one to factor out common code.

2011-10-07pickaxe: plug regex/kws leakRené Scharfe
With -S... --pickaxe-all, free the regex or the kws before returning even if we found a match. Also get rid of the variable has_changes, as we can simply break out of the loop. Signed-off-by: Rene Scharfe <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
