2010-06-13grep: Add the option '--open-files-in-pager'Johannes Schindelin
This adds an option to open the matching files in the pager, and if the pager happens to be "less" (or "vi") and there is only one grep pattern, it also jumps to the first match right away. The short option was chose as '-O' to avoid clashes with GNU grep's options (as suggested by Junio). So, 'git grep -O abc' is a short form for 'less +/abc $(grep -l abc)' except that it works also with spaces in file names, and it does not start the pager if there was no matching file.

2010-02-13Resurrect "git grep --no-index"Junio C Hamano
This reverts commit 3c8f6c8 (Revert 30816237 and 7e62265, 2010-02-05) as the issue has been sorted out.
2010-02-07accept "git grep -- pattern"Jeff King
Currently the only way to "quote" a grep pattern that might begin with a dash is to use "git grep -e pattern". This works just fine, and is also the way right way to do it on many traditional grep implemenations. Some people prefer to use "git grep -- pattern", however, as "--" is the usual "end of options" marker, and at least GNU grep and Solaris 10 grep support this. This patch makes that syntax work. There is a slight behavior change, in that "git grep -- $X" used to be interpreted as "grep for -- in $X". However, that usage is questionable. "--" is usually the end-of-options marker, so "git grep" was unlike many other greps in treating it as a literal pattern (e.g., both GNU grep and Solaris 10 grep will treat "grep --" as missing a pattern).

2010-01-26"log --author=me --grep=it" should find intersection, not unionJunio C Hamano
Historically, any grep filter in "git log" family of commands were taken as restricting to commits with any of the words in the commit log message. However, the user almost always want to find commits "done by this person on that topic". With "--all-match" option, a series of grep patterns can be turned into a requirement that all of them must produce a match, but that makes it impossible to ask for "done by me, on either this or that" with: log --author=me --committer=him --grep=this --grep=that because it will require both "this" and "that" to appear. Change the "header" parser of grep library to treat the headers specially, and parse it as: (all-match-OR (HEADER-AUTHOR me) (HEADER-COMMITTER him) (OR (PATTERN this) (PATTERN that) ) ) Even though the "log" command line parser doesn't give direct access to the extended grep syntax to group terms with parentheses, this change will cover the majority of the case the users would want. This incidentally revealed that one test in t7002 was bogus. It ran: log --author=Thor --grep=Thu --format='%s' and expected (wrongly) "Thu" to match "Thursday" in the author/committer date, but that would never match, as the timestamp in raw commit buffer does not have the name of the day-of-the-week.

2010-01-15grep --no-index: allow use of "git grep" outside a git repositoryJunio C Hamano
Just like some people wanted diff features that are not found in other people's diff implementations outside of a git repository and added --no-index mode to the command, this adds --no-index mode to the "git grep" command. Also, inside a git repository, --no-index mode allows you to grep in untracked (but not ignored) files. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2009-07-23grep: Add --max-depth option.Michał Kiedrowicz
It is useful to grep directories non-recursively, e.g. when one wants to look for all files in the toplevel directory, but not in any subdirectory, or in Documentation/, but not in Documentation/technical/. This patch adds support for --max-depth <depth> option to git-grep. If it is given, git-grep descends at most <depth> levels of directories below paths specified on the command line. Note that if path specified on command line contains wildcards, this option makes no sense, e.g. $ git grep -l --max-depth 0 GNU -- 'contrib/*' (note the quotes) will search all files in contrib/, even in subdirectories, because '*' matches all files.

2009-07-02grep: add option -p/--show-functionRené Scharfe
The new option -p instructs git grep to print the previous function definition as a context line, similar to diff -p. Such context lines are marked with an equal sign instead of a dash. This option complements the existing context options -A, -B, -C. Function definitions are detected using the same heuristic that diff uses. User defined regular expressions are not supported, yet.

2008-09-30tests: grep portability fixesJeff King
We try to avoid using the "-q" or "-e" options, as they are largely useless, as explained in aadbe44f. There is one exception for "-e" here, which is in t7701 used to produce an "or" of patterns. This can be rewritten as an egrep pattern. This patch also removes use of "grep -F" in favor of the more widely available "fgrep".

2008-09-05log --author/--committer: really match only with name partJunio C Hamano
When we tried to find commits done by AUTHOR, the first implementation tried to pattern match a line with "^author .*AUTHOR", which later was enhanced to strip leading caret and look for "^author AUTHOR" when the search pattern was anchored at the left end (i.e. --author="^AUTHOR"). This had a few problems: * When looking for fixed strings (e.g. "git log -F --author=x --grep=y"), the regexp internally used "^author .*x" would never match anything; * To match at the end (e.g. "git log --author='>$'"), the generated regexp has to also match the trailing timestamp part the commit header lines have. Also, in order to determine if the '$' at the end means "match at the end of the line" or just a literal dollar sign (probably backslash-quoted), we would need to parse the regexp ourselves. An earlier alternative tried to make sure that a line matches "^author " (to limit by field name) and the user supplied pattern at the same time. While it solved the -F problem by introducing a special override for matching the "^author ", it did not solve the trailing timestamp nor tail match problem. It also would have matched every commit if --author=author was asked for, not because the author's email part had this string, but because every commit header line that talks about the author begins with that field name, regardleses of who wrote it. Instead of piling more hacks on top of hacks, this rethinks the grep machinery that is used to look for strings in the commit header, and makes sure that (1) field name matches literally at the beginning of the line, followed by a SP, and (2) the user supplied pattern is matched against the remainder of the line, excluding the trailing timestamp data.

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".

2007-09-14Split grep arguments in a way that does not requires to add /dev/null.Junio C Hamano
In order to (almost) always show the name of the file without relying on "-H" option of GNU grep, we used to add /dev/null to the argument list unless we are doing -l or -L. This caused "/dev/null:0" to show up when -c is given in the output. It is not enough to add -c to the set of options we do not pass /dev/null for. When we have too many files, we invoke grep multiple times and we need to avoid giving a widow filename to the last invocation -- otherwise we will not see the name. This keeps two filenames when the argv[] buffer is about to overflow and we have not finished iterating over the index, so that the last round will always have at least two paths to work with (and not require /dev/null). An obvious and the only exception is when there is only 1 file that is given to the underlying grep, and in that case we avoid passing /dev/null and let the external "grep -c" report only the number of matches.

2006-08-12git-grep: show pathnames relative to the current directoryJunio C Hamano
By default, the command shows pathnames relative to the current directory. Use --full-name (the same flag to do so in ls-files) if you want to see the full pathname relative to the project root. This makes it very pleasant to run in Emacs compilation (or "grep-find") buffer. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2006-08-06Fix "grep -w"Junio C Hamano
We used to find the first match of the pattern and then if the match is not for the entire word, declared that the whole line does not match. But that is wrong. The command "git grep -w -e mmap" should find that a line "foo_mmap bar mmap baz" matches, by tring the second instance of pattern "mmap" on the same line. Problems an earlier round of "fix" had were pointed out by Morten Welinder, which have been incorporated in the t7002 tests. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
