2006-02-10git-status -vJunio C Hamano
This revamps the git-status command to take the same set of parameters as git commit. It gives a preview of what is being committed with that command. With -v flag, it shows the diff output between the HEAD commit and the index that would be committed if these flags were given to git-commit command. git-commit also acquires -v flag (it used to mean "verify" but that is the default anyway and there is --no-verify to turn it off, so not much is lost), which uses the updated git-status -v to seed the commit log buffer. This is handy for writing a log message while reviewing the changes one last time. Now, git-commit and git-status are internally share the same implementation. Unlike previous git-commit change, this uses a temporary index to prepare the index file that would become the real index file after a successful commit, and moves it to the real index file once the commit is actually made. This makes it safer than the previous scheme, which stashed away the original index file and restored it after an aborted commit. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2006-01-08git-status: use ls-files --others --directory for untracked list.Junio C Hamano
This shortens "Untracked files" list by using --directory option when running ls-files --others. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-12-14Usage message clean-up, take #2Fredrik Kuivinen
There were some problems with the usage message clean-up patch series. I hadn't realised that subdirectory aware scripts can't source git-sh-setup. I propose that we change this and let the scripts which are subdirectory aware set a variable, SUBDIRECTORY_OK, before they source git-sh-setup. The scripts will also set USAGE and possibly LONG_USAGE before they source git-sh-setup. If LONG_USAGE isn't set it defaults to USAGE. If we go this way it's easy to catch --help in git-sh-setup, print the (long) usage message to stdout and exit cleanly. git-sh-setup can define a 'usage' shell function which can be called by the scripts to print the short usage string to stderr and exit non-cleanly. It will also be easy to change $0 to basename $0 or something else, if would like to do that sometime in the future. What follows is a patch to convert a couple of the commands to this style. If it's ok with everyone to do it this way I will convert the rest of the scripts too. [jc: thrown in to proposed updates queue for comments.] Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-12-07Use printf rather than echo -n.Jason Riedy
On AIX, there is no -n option to the system's echo. Instead, it needs the '\c' control character. We could replace echo -n "foo" with echo -e "foo\c" but printf is recommended by most man pages. Tested on AIX 5.3, Solaris 8, and Debian. [jc: futureproofed two instances that uses variable with '%s' so later feeding different messages would not break things too easily; others are emitting literal so whoever changes the literal ought to notice more easily so they are safe.] Signed-off-by: E.

2005-11-25git-sh-setup: die if outside git repository.Junio C Hamano
Now all the users of this script detect its exit status and die, complaining that it is outside git repository. So move the code that dies from all callers to git-sh-setup script. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-07git-status: do not mark unmerged paths as committable.Junio C Hamano
An unmerged path appears as both "Updated but not checked in" list, and "Changed but not updated" list. We are not going to commit that path until it is resolved, so remove it from the former list. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-10-24Clarify git status output.Junio C Hamano
What we list as "Ignored files" are not "ignored". Rather, it is the list of "not listed in the to-be-ignored files, but exists -- you may be forgetting to add them". Pointed out by Daniel. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2005-10-10Teach git-status about spaces in file names also on MacOSXJohannes Schindelin
Not all sed understands '\t' and consequently cuts off every file name at the first "t" (or backslash...). Signed-off-by: Johannes Schindelin <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-10-07teach git-status about spaces in filenamesKai Ruemmler
git-status truncates filenames up to the first occurrence of a whitespace character when displaying. More precisely, it displays the filename up to any field seperator defined in $IFS. This patch fixes it. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-10-02[PATCH] Better error reporting for "git status"Linus Torvalds
Instead of "git status" ignoring (and hiding) potential errors from the "git-update-index" call, make it exit if it fails, and show the error. In order to do this, use the "-q" flag (to ignore not-up-to-date files) and add a new "--unmerged" flag that allows unmerged entries in the index without any errors. This also avoids marking the index "changed" if an entry isn't actually modified, and makes sure that we exit with an understandable error message if the index is corrupt or unreadable. "read_cache()" no longer returns an error for the caller to check. Finally, make die() and usage() exit with recognizable error codes, if we ever want to check the failure reason in scripts.

2005-10-02Add git-symbolic-refJunio C Hamano
This adds the counterpart of git-update-ref that lets you read and create "symbolic refs". By default it uses a symbolic link to represent ".git/HEAD -> refs/heads/master", but it can be compiled to use the textfile symbolic ref. The places that did 'readlink .git/HEAD' and 'ln -s refs/heads/blah .git/HEAD' have been converted to use new git-symbolic-ref command, so that they can deal with either implementation.

2005-09-08Big tool rename.Junio C Hamano
As promised, this is the "big tool rename" patch. The primary differences since 0.99.6 are: (1) git-*-script are no more. The commands installed do not have any such suffix so users do not have to remember if something is implemented as a shell script or not. (2) Many command names with 'cache' in them are renamed with 'index' if that is what they mean. There are backward compatibility symblic links so that you and Porcelains can keep using the old names, but the backward compatibility support is expected to be removed in the near future.
