2010-08-06ll-merge: let caller decide whether to renormalizeJonathan Nieder
Add a “renormalize” bit to the ll-merge options word so callers can decide on a case-by-case basis whether the merge is likely to have overlapped with a change in smudge/clean rules. This reveals a few commands that have not been taking that situation into account, though it does not fix them. No functional change intended.

2010-08-06ll-merge: make flag easier to populateJonathan Nieder
ll_merge() takes its options in a flag word, which has a few advantages: - options flags can be cheaply passed around in registers, while an option struct passed by pointer cannot; - callers can easily pass 0 without trouble for no options, while an option struct passed by value would not allow that. The downside is that code to populate and access the flag word can be somewhat opaque. Mitigate that with a few macros.

2010-07-02Avoid conflicts when merging branches with mixed normalizationEyvind Bernhardsen
Currently, merging across changes in line ending normalization is painful since files containing CRLF will conflict with normalized files, even if the only difference between the two versions is the line endings. Additionally, any "real" merge conflicts that exist are obscured because every line in the file has a conflict. Assume you start out with a repo that has a lot of text files with CRLF checked in (A): o---C / \ A---B---D B: Add "* text=auto" to .gitattributes and normalize all files to LF-only C: Modify some of the text files D: Try to merge C You will get a ridiculous number of LF/CRLF conflicts when trying to merge C into D, since the repository contents for C are "wrong" wrt the new .gitattributes file. Fix ll-merge so that the "base", "theirs" and "ours" stages are passed through convert_to_worktree() and convert_to_git() before a three-way merge. This ensures that all three stages are normalized in the same way, removing from consideration differences that are only due to normalization. This feature is optional for now since it changes a low-level mechanism and is not necessary for the majority of users. The "merge.renormalize" config variable enables it.

2010-05-31Rewrite dynamic structure initializations to runtime assignmentGary V. Vaughan
Unfortunately, there are still plenty of production systems with vendor compilers that choke unless all compound declarations can be determined statically at compile time, for example hpux10.20 (I can provide a comprehensive list of our supported platforms that exhibit this problem if necessary). This patch simply breaks apart any compound declarations with dynamic initialisation expressions, and moves the initialisation until after the last declaration in the same block, in all the places necessary to have the offending compilers accept the code.

2010-03-21ll_merge(): add ancestor label parameter for diff3-style outputJonathan Nieder
Commands using the ll_merge() function will present conflict hunks imitating ‘diff3 -m’ output if the merge.conflictstyle configuration option is set appropriately. Unlike ‘diff3 -m’, the output does not include a label for the merge base on the ||||||| line of the output, and some tools misparse the conflict hunks without that. Add a new ancestor_label parameter to ll_merge() to give callers the power to rectify this situation. If ancestor_label is NULL, the output format is unchanged. All callers pass NULL for now.

2010-03-21xdl_merge(): move file1 and file2 labels to xmparam structureJonathan Nieder
The labels for the three participants in a potential conflict are all optional arguments for the xdiff merge routine; if they are NULL, then xdl_merge() can cope by omitting the labels from its output. Move them to the xmparam structure to allow new callers to save some keystrokes where they are not needed. This also has the virtue of making the xdiff merge interface more similar to merge_trees, which might make it easier to learn.

2009-07-05run_command: return exit code as positive valueJohannes Sixt
As a general guideline, functions in git's code return zero to indicate success and negative values to indicate failure. The run_command family of functions followed this guideline. But there are actually two different kinds of failure: - failures of system calls; - non-zero exit code of the program that was run. Usually, a non-zero exit code of the program is a failure and means a failure to the caller. Except that sometimes it does not. For example, the exit code of merge programs (e.g. external merge drivers) conveys information about how the merge failed, and not all exit calls are actually failures. Furthermore, the return value of run_command is sometimes used as exit code by the caller. This change arranges that the exit code of the program is returned as a positive value, which can now be regarded as the "result" of the function. System call failures continue to be reported as negative values. Signed-off-by: Johannes Sixt <j6t@kdbg.org> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>

2009-04-30replace direct calls to unlink(2) with unlink_or_warnAlex Riesen
This helps to notice when something's going wrong, especially on systems which lock open files. I used the following criteria when selecting the code for replacement: - it was already printing a warning for the unlink failures - it is in a function which already printing something or is called from such a function - it is in a static function, returning void and the function is only called from a builtin main function (cmd_) - it is in a function which handles emergency exit (signal handlers) - it is in a function which is obvously cleaning up the lockfiles Signed-off-by: Alex Riesen <raa.lkml@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
