2010-05-24grep: support NUL chars in search strings for -FRené Scharfe
Search patterns in a file specified with -f can contain NUL characters. The current code ignores all characters on a line after a NUL. Pass the actual length of the line all the way from the pattern file to fixmatch() and use it for case-sensitive fixed string matching. Signed-off-by: Rene Scharfe <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2010-03-08grep: Colorize selected, context, and function linesMark Lodato
Colorize non-matching text of selected lines, context lines, and function name lines. The default for all three is no color, but they can be configured using color.grep.<slot>. The first two are similar to the corresponding options in GNU grep, except that GNU grep applies the color to the entire line, not just non-matching text.

2010-03-08grep: Colorize filename, line number, and separatorMark Lodato
Colorize the filename, line number, and separator in git grep output, as GNU grep does. The colors are customizable through color.grep.<slot>. The default is to only color the separator (in cyan), since this gives the biggest legibility increase without overwhelming the user with colors. GNU grep also defaults cyan for the separator, but defaults to magenta for the filename and to green for the line number, as well. There is one difference from GNU grep: When a binary file matches without -a, GNU grep does not color the <file> in "Binary file <file> matches", but we do. Like GNU grep, if --null is given, the null separators are not colored. For config.txt, use a a sub-list to describe the slots, rather than a single paragraph with parentheses, since this is much more readable. Remove the cast to int for `rm_eo - rm_so` since it is not necessary. Signed-off-by: Mark Lodato <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2010-01-26"log --author=me --grep=it" should find intersection, not unionJunio C Hamano
Historically, any grep filter in "git log" family of commands were taken as restricting to commits with any of the words in the commit log message. However, the user almost always want to find commits "done by this person on that topic". With "--all-match" option, a series of grep patterns can be turned into a requirement that all of them must produce a match, but that makes it impossible to ask for "done by me, on either this or that" with: log --author=me --committer=him --grep=this --grep=that because it will require both "this" and "that" to appear. Change the "header" parser of grep library to treat the headers specially, and parse it as: (all-match-OR (HEADER-AUTHOR me) (HEADER-COMMITTER him) (OR (PATTERN this) (PATTERN that) ) ) Even though the "log" command line parser doesn't give direct access to the extended grep syntax to group terms with parentheses, this change will cover the majority of the case the users would want. This incidentally revealed that one test in t7002 was bogus. It ran: log --author=Thor --grep=Thu --format='%s' and expected (wrongly) "Thu" to match "Thursday" in the author/committer date, but that would never match, as the timestamp in raw commit buffer does not have the name of the day-of-the-week.

2009-07-23grep: Add --max-depth option.Michał Kiedrowicz
It is useful to grep directories non-recursively, e.g. when one wants to look for all files in the toplevel directory, but not in any subdirectory, or in Documentation/, but not in Documentation/technical/. This patch adds support for --max-depth <depth> option to git-grep. If it is given, git-grep descends at most <depth> levels of directories below paths specified on the command line. Note that if path specified on command line contains wildcards, this option makes no sense, e.g. $ git grep -l --max-depth 0 GNU -- 'contrib/*' (note the quotes) will search all files in contrib/, even in subdirectories, because '*' matches all files. Documentation updates, bash-completion and simple test cases are also provided. Signed-off-by: Michał Kiedrowicz <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2009-07-02grep: add option -p/--show-functionRené Scharfe
The new option -p instructs git grep to print the previous function definition as a context line, similar to diff -p. Such context lines are marked with an equal sign instead of a dash. This option complements the existing context options -A, -B, -C. Function definitions are detected using the same heuristic that diff uses. User defined regular expressions are not supported, yet.

2009-07-02grep: print context hunk marks between filesRené Scharfe
Print a hunk mark before matches from a new file are shown, in addition to the current behaviour of printing them if lines have been skipped. The result is easier to read, as (presumably unrelated) matches from different files are separated by a hunk mark. GNU grep does the same.

2009-07-02grep: move context hunk mark handling into show_line()René Scharfe
Move last_shown into struct grep_opt, to make it available in show_line(), and then make the function handle the printing of hunk marks for context lines in a central place. Signed-off-by: Rene Scharfe <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2009-05-09grep: use parseoptRené Scharfe
Convert git-grep to parseopt. The bitfields in struct grep_opt are converted to full ints, increasing its size. This shouldn't be a problem as there is only a single instance in memory. Signed-off-by: Rene Scharfe <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2009-03-07grep: add support for coloring with external grepsRené Scharfe
Add the config variable color.grep.external, which can be used to switch on coloring of external greps. To enable auto coloring with GNU grep, one needs to set color.grep.external to --color=always to defeat the pager started by git grep. The value of the config variable will be passed to the external grep only if it would colorize internal grep's output, so automatic terminal detected works. The default is to not pass any option, because the external grep command could be a program without color support. Also set the environment variables GREP_COLOR and GREP_COLORS to pass the configured color for matches to the external grep. This works with GNU grep; other variables could be added as needed.

2009-03-07grep: color patterns in outputRené Scharfe
Coloring matches makes them easier to spot in the output. Add two options and two parameters: color.grep (to turn coloring on or off), color.grep.match (to set the color of matches), --color and --no-color (to turn coloring on or off, respectively). The output of external greps is not changed. This patch is based on earlier ones by Nguyễn Thái Ngọc Duy and Thiago Alves. Signed-off-by: Rene Scharfe <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2009-03-07grep: remove grep_opt argument from match_expr_eval()René Scharfe
The only use of the struct grep_opt argument of match_expr_eval() is to pass the option word_regexp to match_one_pattern(). By adding a pattern flag for it we can reduce the number of function arguments of these two functions, as a cleanup and preparation for adding more in the next patch.

2009-01-10grep: don't call regexec() for fixed stringsRené Scharfe
Add the new flag "fixed" to struct grep_pat and set it if the pattern is doesn't contain any regex control characters in addition to if the flag -F/--fixed-strings was specified. This gives a nice speed up on msysgit, where regexec() seems to be extra slow. Before (best of five runs): $ time git grep grep v1.6.1 >/dev/null real 0m0.552s user 0m0.000s sys 0m0.000s $ time git grep -F grep v1.6.1 >/dev/null real 0m0.170s user 0m0.000s sys 0m0.015s With the patch: $ time git grep grep v1.6.1 >/dev/null real 0m0.173s user 0m0.000s sys 0m0.000s The difference is much smaller on Linux, but still measurable.

2008-10-01git grep: Add "-z/--null" option as in GNU's grep.Raphael Zimmerer
Here's a trivial patch that adds "-z" and "--null" options to "git grep". It was discussed on the mailing-list that git's "-z" convention should be used instead of GNU grep's "-Z". So things like 'git grep -l -z "$FOO" | xargs -0 sed -i "s/$FOO/$BOO/"' do work now. Signed-off-by: Raphael Zimmerer <> Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <>
2008-09-05log --author/--committer: really match only with name partJunio C Hamano
When we tried to find commits done by AUTHOR, the first implementation tried to pattern match a line with "^author .*AUTHOR", which later was enhanced to strip leading caret and look for "^author AUTHOR" when the search pattern was anchored at the left end (i.e. --author="^AUTHOR"). This had a few problems: * When looking for fixed strings (e.g. "git log -F --author=x --grep=y"), the regexp internally used "^author .*x" would never match anything; * To match at the end (e.g. "git log --author='>$'"), the generated regexp has to also match the trailing timestamp part the commit header lines have. Also, in order to determine if the '$' at the end means "match at the end of the line" or just a literal dollar sign (probably backslash-quoted), we would need to parse the regexp ourselves. An earlier alternative tried to make sure that a line matches "^author " (to limit by field name) and the user supplied pattern at the same time. While it solved the -F problem by introducing a special override for matching the "^author ", it did not solve the trailing timestamp nor tail match problem. It also would have matched every commit if --author=author was asked for, not because the author's email part had this string, but because every commit header line that talks about the author begins with that field name, regardleses of who wrote it. Instead of piling more hacks on top of hacks, this rethinks the grep machinery that is used to look for strings in the commit header, and makes sure that (1) field name matches literally at the beginning of the line, followed by a SP, and (2) the user supplied pattern is matched against the remainder of the line, excluding the trailing timestamp data.

2006-09-28grep --all-matchJunio C Hamano
This lets you say: git grep --all-match -e A -e B -e C to find lines that match A or B or C but limit the matches from the files that have all of A, B and C. This is different from git grep -e A --and -e B --and -e C in that the latter looks for a single line that has all of these at the same time. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2006-09-20builtin-grep: make pieces of it available as library.Junio C Hamano
This makes three functions and associated option structures from builtin-grep available from other parts of the system. * options to drive built-in grep engine is stored in struct grep_opt; * pattern strings and extended grep expressions are added to struct grep_opt with append_grep_pattern(); * when finished calling append_grep_pattern(), call compile_grep_patterns() to prepare for execution; * call grep_buffer() to find matches in the in-core buffer. This also adds an internal option "status_only" to grep_opt, which suppresses any output from grep_buffer(). Callers of the function as library can use it to check if there is a match without producing any output. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
