* master: Optionally do not list empty directories in git-ls-files --others Document git-rebase behavior on conflicts. Fix error handling for nonexistent names
2006-03-27Optionally do not list empty directories in git-ls-files --othersPetr Baudis
Without the --directory flag, git-ls-files wouldn't ever list directories, producing no output for empty directories, which is good since they cannot be added and they bear no content, even untracked one (if Git ever starts tracking directories on their own, this should obviously change since the content notion will change). With the --directory flag however, git-ls-files would list even empty directories. This may be good in some situations but sometimes you want to prevent that. This patch adds a --no-empty-directory option which makes git-ls-files omit empty directories. Signed-off-by: Petr Baudis <>

2006-02-25git ls files recursively show ignored filesShawn Pearce
Make git-ls-files --others --ignored recurse into non-excluded subdirectories. Typically when asking git-ls-files to display all files which are ignored by one or more exclude patterns one would want it to recurse into subdirectories which are not themselves excluded to see if there are any excluded files contained within those subdirectories.

2006-02-14commit: detect misspelled pathspec while making a partial commit.Junio C Hamano
When you say "git commit Documentaiton" to make partial commit for the files only in that directory, we did not detect that as a misspelled pathname and attempted to commit index without change. If nothing matched, there is no harm done, but if the index gets modified otherwise by having another valid pathspec or after an explicit update-index, a user will not notice without paying attention to the "git status" preview. This introduces --error-unmatch option to ls-files, and uses it to detect this common user error. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2006-02-12ls-files: split "show-valid-bit" into a different option.Junio C Hamano

2006-02-09ls-files: honour per-directory ignore file from higher directories.Junio C Hamano
When git-ls-files -o --exclude-per-directory=.gitignore is run from a subdirectory, it did not read from .gitignore from its parent directory. Reading from them makes output from these two commands consistent: $ git ls-files -o --exclude-per-directory=.gitignore Documentation $ cd Documentation && git ls-files -o --exclude-per-directory=.gitignore Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2006-02-09ls-files: debugging aid for CE_VALID changes.Junio C Hamano

2006-01-08ls-files --others --directory: give trailing slashJunio C Hamano

2006-01-08ls-files --others --directory: fix a bug with index entry orderingJunio C Hamano
When both and howto/make-dist.txt exist under Documentation/ directory, dir_exists() mistakenly checked it without the trailing slash to see if there was something under Documentation/howto directory, and did not realize there was, because '-' sorts earlier than '/' and cache_name_pos() finds, which is not under howto/ directory. This caused --others --directory to show it which was incorrect. Check the directory name with the trailing slash, because having an entry that has such as a prefix is what we are looking for.

2006-01-08ls-files -o: optionally skip showing the contents in "untracked" directoriesLinus Torvalds
Darrin Thompson notes that git-ls-files -o reports all the unknown files it finds in a work area. Subversion and probably other systems "simply ignore all the files and directories inside an unknown directory and just note the directory as unknown." With --directory option, ls-files --others shows untracked directories without descending into them. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2006-01-07[PATCH] Compilation: zero-length array declaration.Junio C Hamano
ISO C99 (and GCC 3.x or later) lets you write a flexible array at the end of a structure, like this: struct frotz { int xyzzy; char nitfol[]; /* more */ }; GCC 2.95 and 2.96 let you to do this with "char nitfol[0]"; unfortunately this is not allowed by ISO C90. This declares such construct like this: struct frotz { int xyzzy; char nitfol[FLEX_ARRAY]; /* more */ }; and git-compat-util.h defines FLEX_ARRAY to 0 for gcc 2.95 and empty for others. If you are using a C90 C compiler, you should be able to override this with CFLAGS=-DFLEX_ARRAY=1 from the command line of "make". Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2005-11-07ls-files: --others should not say unmerged paths are unknown.Junio C Hamano
Jon Loeliger noticed that an unmerged path appears as "Untracked" in git-status output, even though we show the same path as updated/changed. Since --others means "we have not told git about that path", we should not show unmerged paths -- obviously, git knows about them; it just does not know what we want to do about them yet.

2005-11-03remove CR/LF from .gitignoreAlex Riesen
For everyone cursed by dos/windows line endings (aka CRLF): The code reading the .gitignore files (excludes and excludes per directory) leaves \r in the patterns, which causes fnmatch to fail for no obvious reason.

This reverts 6c5f9baa3bc0d63e141e0afc23110205379905a4 commit, whose change breaks gcc-2.95. Not that I ignore portability to compilers that are properly C99, but keeping compilation with GCC working is more important, at least for now. We would probably end up declaring with "name[1]" and teach the allocator to subtract one if we really aimed for portability, but that is left for later rounds. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2005-08-22[PATCH] git-ls-files: generalized pathspecsLinus Torvalds
This generalizes the git "glob" string to be a lot more like the git-diff-* pathspecs (but there are still differences: the diff family doesn't do any globbing, and because the diff family always generates the full native pathname, it doesn't have the issue with ".."). It does three things: - it allows multiple matching strings, ie you can do things like git-ls-files arch/i386/ include/asm-i386/ | xargs grep pattern - the "matching" criteria is a combination of "exact path component match" (the same as the git-diff-* family), and "fnmatch()". However, you should be careful with the confusion between the git-ls-files internal globbing and the standard shell globbing, ie git-ls-files fs/*.c does globbing in the shell, and does something totally different from git-ls-files 'fs/*.c' which does the globbing inside git-ls-files. The latter has _one_ pathspec with a wildcard, and will match any .c file anywhere under the fs/ directory, while the former has been expanded by the shell into having _lots_ of pathspec entries, all of which are just in the top-level fs/ subdirectory. They will happily be matched exactly, but we will thus miss all the subdirectories under fs/. As a result, the first one will (on the current kernel) match 55 files, while the second one will match 664 files! - it uses the generic path prefixing, so that ".." and friends at the beginning of the path spec work automatically NOTE! When generating relative pathname output (the default), a pathspec that causes the base to be outside the current working directory will be rejected with an error message like: fatal: git-ls-files: cannot generate relative filenames containing '..' because we do not actually generate ".." in the output. However, the ".." format works fine for the --full-name case: cd arch/i386/kernel git-ls-files --full-name ../mm/ results in arch/i386/mm/Makefile arch/i386/mm/boot_ioremap.c arch/i386/mm/discontig.c arch/i386/mm/extable.c arch/i386/mm/fault.c arch/i386/mm/highmem.c arch/i386/mm/hugetlbpage.c arch/i386/mm/init.c arch/i386/mm/ioremap.c arch/i386/mm/mmap.c arch/i386/mm/pageattr.c arch/i386/mm/pgtable.c Perhaps more commonly, the generic path prefixing means that "." and "./" automatically get simplified and work properly.

2005-08-21[PATCH] Make "git-ls-files" work in subdirectoriesLinus Torvalds
This makes git-ls-files work inside a relative directory, and also adds some rudimentary filename globbing support. For example, in the kernel you can now do cd arch/i386 git-ls-files and it will show all files under that subdirectory (and it will have removed the "arch/i386/" prefix unless you give it the "--full-name" option, so that you can feed the result to "xargs grep" or similar). The filename globbing is kind of strange: it does _not_ follow normal globbing rules, although it does look "almost" like a normal file glob (and it uses the POSIX.2 "fnmatch()" function). The glob pattern (there can be only one) is always split into a "directory part" and a "glob part", where the directory part is defined as any full directory path without any '*' or '?' characters. The "glob" part is whatever is left over. For example, when doing git-ls-files 'arch/i386/p*/*.c' the "directory part" is is "arch/i386/", and the "glob part" is "p*/*.c". The directory part will be added to the prefix, and handled efficiently (ie we will not be searching outside of that subdirectory), while the glob part (if anything is left over) will be used to trigger "fnmatch()" matches. This is efficient and very useful, but can result in somewhat non-intuitive behaviour. For example: git-ls-files 'arch/i386/*.[ch]' will find all .c and .h files under arch/i386/, _including_ things in lower subdirectories (ie it will match "arch/i386/kernel/process.c", because "kernel/process.c" will match the "*.c" specifier). Also, while git-ls-files arch/i386/ will show all files under that subdirectory, doing the same without the final slash would try to show the file "i386" under the "arch/" subdirectory, and since there is no such file (even if there is such a _directory_) it will not match anything at all. These semantics may not seem intuitive, but they are actually very practical. In particular, it makes it very simple to do git-ls-files fs/*.c | xargs grep some_pattern and it does what you want.

2005-07-30ls-files: rework exclude patterns.Junio C Hamano
Pasky and others raised many valid points on the problems initial exclude pattern enhancement work had. Based on the list discussion, rework the exclude logic to use "last match determines its fate" rule, and order the list by exclude-from (the fallback default pattern file), exclude-per-directory (shallower to deeper, so deeper ones can override), and then command line exclude patterns.

2005-05-13[PATCH 3/3] Add git-ls-files -k.Junio C Hamano
When checkout-cache attempts to check out a non-directory where a directory exists on the work tree, or to check out a file under directory D when path D is a non-directory on the work tree, the attempt fails. Before running checkout-cache, the user can run git-ls-files with the -k (killed) option to get a list of such paths. The tagged output format uses "K" to denote them. This is useful for Porcelain layer to be careful when dealing with the recently corrected behaviour of checkout-cache. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <> Signed-off-by: Petr Baudis <>
