2008-01-26parse-options: catch likely typo in presense of aggregated options.Pierre Habouzit
If options are aggregated, and that the whole token is an exact prefix of a long option that is longer than 2 letters, reject it. This is to prevent a common typo: $ git commit -amend to get interpreted as "commit all with message 'end'". The typo check isn't performed if there is no aggregation, because the stuck form is the recommended one. If we have `-o` being a valid short option that takes an argument, and --option a long one, then we _MUST_ accept -option as "'o' option with argument 'ption'", which is our official recommended form.

2007-12-22Force the sticked form for options with optional arguments.Pierre Habouzit
This forbids "git tag -n <number> -l" we allowed earlier, so adjust t7004 while at it. Signed-off-by: Pierre Habouzit <madcoder@debian.org>
2007-11-23parse-options: Allow to hide options from the default usage.Pierre Habouzit
This is useful for backward-compatibility aliases, or very advanced command line switches introduced for internal git usages and have no real use for a user. parse-options still shows them if the user asks for --help-all.

2007-11-12parse-options new features.Pierre Habouzit
options flags: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ PARSE_OPT_NONEG allow the caller to disallow the negated option to exists. option types: ~~~~~~~~~~~~ OPTION_BIT: ORs (or NANDs) a mask. OPTION_SET_INT: force the value to be set to this integer. OPTION_SET_PTR: force the value to be set to this pointer. helper: ~~~~~~ HAS_MULTI_BITS (in git-compat-util.h) is a bit-hack to check if an unsigned integer has more than one bit set, useful to check if conflicting options have been used.

2007-11-06parse-options: abbreviation engine fix.Johannes Schindelin
When an option could be an ambiguous abbreviation of two options, the code used to error out. Even if an exact match would have occured later. Test and original patch by Pierre Habouzit.

2007-10-30parse-options: Allow abbreviated options when unambiguousJohannes Schindelin
When there is an option "--amend", the option parser now recognizes "--am" for that option, provided that there is no other option beginning with "--am". Signed-off-by: Johannes Schindelin <johannes.schindelin@gmx.de> Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <spearce@spearce.org>
2007-10-30Add shortcuts for very often used options.Pierre Habouzit
It helps with consistency of the help strings, for example. Signed-off-by: Pierre Habouzit <madcoder@debian.org> Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <spearce@spearce.org>
2007-10-30parse-options: make some arguments optional, add callbacks.Pierre Habouzit
* add the possibility to use callbacks to parse some options, this can help implementing new options kinds with great flexibility. struct option gains a callback pointer and a `defval' where callbacks user can put either integers or pointers. callbacks also can use the `value' pointer for anything, preferably to the pointer to the final storage for the value though. * add a `flag' member to struct option to make explicit that this option may have an optional argument. The semantics depends on the option type. For INTEGERS, it means that if the switch is not used in its --long-form=<value> form, and that there is no token after it or that the token does not starts with a digit, then it's assumed that the switch has no argument. For STRING or CALLBACK it works the same, except that the condition is that the next atom starts with a dash. This is needed to implement backward compatible behaviour with existing ways to parse the command line. Its use for new options is discouraged.

2007-10-30Add a simple option parser.Pierre Habouzit
The option parser takes argc, argv, an array of struct option and a usage string. Each of the struct option elements in the array describes a valid option, its type and a pointer to the location where the value is written. The entry point is parse_options(), which scans through the given argv, and matches each option there against the list of valid options. During the scan, argv is rewritten to only contain the non-option command line arguments and the number of these is returned. Aggregation of single switches is allowed: -rC0 is the same as -r -C 0 (supposing that -C wants an arg). Every long option automatically support the option with the same name, prefixed with 'no-' to unset the switch. It assumes that initial value for strings are "NULL" and for integers is "0". Long options are supported either with '=' or without: --some-option=foo is the same as --some-option foo Acked-by: Kristian Høgsberg <krh@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Pierre Habouzit <madcoder@debian.org> Signed-off-by: Shawn O.
