2007-09-21strbuf API additions and enhancements.Pierre Habouzit
Add strbuf_remove, change strbuf_insert: As both are special cases of strbuf_splice, implement them as such. gcc is able to do the math and generate almost optimal code this way. Add strbuf_swap: Exchange the values of its arguments. Use it in fast-import.c Also fix spacing issues in strbuf.h Signed-off-by: Pierre Habouzit <>
2007-09-18Drop strbuf's 'eof' marker, and make read_line a first class citizen.Pierre Habouzit
read_line is now strbuf_getline, and is a first class citizen, it returns 0 when reading a line worked, EOF else. The ->eof marker was used non-locally by fast-import.c, mimic the same behaviour using a static int in "read_next_command", that now returns -1 on EOF, and avoids to call strbuf_getline when it's in EOF state. Also no longer automagically strbuf_release the buffer, it's counter intuitive and breaks fast-import in a very subtle way. Note: being at EOF implies that command_buf.len == 0.

2007-09-17New strbuf APIs: splice and attach.Pierre Habouzit
* strbuf_splice replace a portion of the buffer with another. * strbuf_attach replace a strbuf buffer with the given one, that should be malloc'ed. Then it enforces strbuf's invariants. If alloc > len, then this function has negligible cost, else it will perform a realloc, possibly with a cost. Also some style issues are fixed now.

2007-09-10Strbuf API extensions and fixes.Pierre Habouzit
* Add strbuf_rtrim to remove trailing spaces. * Add strbuf_insert to insert data at a given position. * Off-by one fix in strbuf_addf: strbuf_avail() does not counts the final \0 so the overflow test for snprintf is the strict comparison. This is not critical as the growth mechanism chosen will always allocate _more_ memory than asked, so the second test will not fail. It's some kind of miracle though. * Add size extension hints for strbuf_init and strbuf_read. If 0, default applies, else: + initial buffer has the given size for strbuf_init. + first growth checks it has at least this size rather than the default 8192.

2007-09-07Rework strbuf API and semantics.Pierre Habouzit
The gory details are explained in strbuf.h. The change of semantics this patch enforces is that the embeded buffer has always a '\0' character after its last byte, to always make it a C-string. The offs-by-one changes are all related to that very change. A strbuf can be used to store byte arrays, or as an extended string library. The `buf' member can be passed to any C legacy string function, because strbuf operations always ensure there is a terminating \0 at the end of the buffer, not accounted in the `len' field of the structure. A strbuf can be used to generate a string/buffer whose final size is not really known, and then "strbuf_detach" can be used to get the built buffer, and keep the wrapping "strbuf" structure usable for further work again. Other interesting feature: strbuf_grow(sb, size) ensure that there is enough allocated space in `sb' to put `size' new octets of data in the buffer. It helps avoiding reallocating data for nothing when the problem the strbuf helps to solve has a known typical size. Signed-off-by: Pierre Habouzit <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-05-18[PATCH] Kill a bunch of pointer sign warnings for gcc4Brian Gerst
- Raw hashes should be unsigned char. - String functions want signed char. - Hash and compress functions want unsigned char. Signed-off By: Brian Gerst <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2005-04-26[PATCH] Introduce diff-tree-helper.Junio C Hamano
This patch introduces a new program, diff-tree-helper. It reads output from diff-cache and diff-tree, and produces a patch file. The diff format customization can be done the same way the show-diff uses; the same external diff interface introduced by the previous patch to drive diff from show-diff is used so this is not surprising. It is used like the following examples: $ diff-cache --cached -z <tree> | diff-tree-helper -z -R paths... $ diff-tree -r -z <tree1> <tree2> | diff-tree-helper -z paths... - As usual, the use of the -z flag is recommended in the script to pass NUL-terminated filenames through the pipe between commands. - The -R flag is used to generate reverse diff. It does not matter for diff-tree case, but it is sometimes useful to get a patch in the desired direction out of diff-cache. - The paths parameters are used to restrict the paths that appears in the output. Again this is useful to use with diff-cache, which, unlike diff-tree, does not take such paths restriction parameters. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
