2008-04-30Use the modern syntax of git-diff-files in t2002-checkout-cache-u.shAlex Riesen
As a nice side effect it also fixes on FreeBSD 4, /bin/sh of which has problems interpreting "! command" construction. Signed-off-by: Alex Riesen <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2008-02-02Sane use of test_expect_failureJunio C Hamano
Originally, test_expect_failure was designed to be the opposite of test_expect_success, but this was a bad decision. Most tests run a series of commands that leads to the single command that needs to be tested, like this: test_expect_{success,failure} 'test title' ' setup1 && setup2 && setup3 && what is to be tested ' And expecting a failure exit from the whole sequence misses the point of writing tests. Your setup$N that are supposed to succeed may have failed without even reaching what you are trying to test. The only valid use of test_expect_failure is to check a trivial single command that is expected to fail, which is a minority in tests of Porcelain-ish commands. This large-ish patch rewrites all uses of test_expect_failure to use test_expect_success and rewrites the condition of what is tested, like this: test_expect_success 'test title' ' setup1 && setup2 && setup3 && ! this command should fail ' test_expect_failure is redefined to serve as a reminder that that test *should* succeed but due to a known breakage in git it currently does not pass. So if git-foo command should create a file 'bar' but you discovered a bug that it doesn't, you can write a test like this: test_expect_failure 'git-foo should create bar' ' rm -f bar && git foo && test -f bar ' This construct acts similar to test_expect_success, but instead of reporting "ok/FAIL" like test_expect_success does, the outcome is reported as "FIXED/still broken".

2007-07-03Rewrite "git-frotz" to "git frotz"Junio C Hamano
This uses the remove-dashes target to replace "git-frotz" to "git frotz". Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-09-08Big tool rename.Junio C Hamano
As promised, this is the "big tool rename" patch. The primary differences since 0.99.6 are: (1) git-*-script are no more. The commands installed do not have any such suffix so users do not have to remember if something is implemented as a shell script or not. (2) Many command names with 'cache' in them are renamed with 'index' if that is what they mean. There are backward compatibility symblic links so that you and Porcelains can keep using the old names, but the backward compatibility support is expected to be removed in the near future.

2005-05-20Fix up previous commitLinus Torvalds
Add '-R' flag to diff-tree, and change the test subdirectory shell files to be executable (something that Junio couldn't get me to do through the pure patch with my current patch handling infrastructure).
2005-05-20[PATCH] diff overhaulJunio C Hamano
This cleans up the way calls are made into the diff core from diff-tree family and diff-helper. Earlier, these programs had "if (generating_patch)" sprinkled all over the place, but those ugliness are gone and handled uniformly from the diff core, even when not generating patch format. This also allowed diff-cache and diff-files to acquire -R (reverse) option to generate diff in reverse. Users of diff-tree can swap two trees easily so I did not add -R there. [ Linus' note: I'll add -R to "diff-tree" too, since a "commit diff" doesn't have another tree to switch around: the other tree is always the parent(s) of the commit ] Also -M<digits-as-mantissa> suggestion made by Linus has been implemented. Documentation updates are also included. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2005-05-19[PATCH] Implement git-checkout-cache -u to update stat information in the cache.Junio C Hamano
With -u flag, git-checkout-cache picks up the stat information from newly created file and updates the cache. This removes the need to run git-update-cache --refresh immediately after running git-checkout-cache. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
