2021-12-13tests: fix broken &&-chains in `$(...)` command substitutionsEric Sunshine
The top-level &&-chain checker built into t/ causes tests to magically exit with code 117 if the &&-chain is broken. However, it has the shortcoming that the magic does not work within `{...}` groups, `(...)` subshells, `$(...)` substitutions, or within bodies of compound statements, such as `if`, `for`, `while`, `case`, etc. `chainlint.sed` partly fills in the gap by catching broken &&-chains in `(...)` subshells, but bugs can still lurk behind broken &&-chains in the other cases. Fix broken &&-chains in `$(...)` command substitutions in order to reduce the number of possible lurking bugs.

2010-06-05ls-files: allow relative pathspecClemens Buchacher
git ls-files used to error out if given paths which point outside the current working directory, such as '../'. We now allow such paths and the output is analogous to git grep -l. Signed-off-by: Clemens Buchacher <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2008-05-05Fix tests breaking when checkout path contains shell metacharactersBryan Donlan
This fixes the remainder of the issues where the test script itself is at fault for failing when the git checkout path contains whitespace or other shell metacharacters. The majority of git svn tests used the idiom test_expect_success "title" "test script using $svnrepo" These were changed to have the test script in single-quotes: test_expect_success "title" 'test script using "$svnrepo"' which unfortunately makes the patch appear larger than it really is. One consequence of this change is that in the verbose test output the value of $svnrepo (and in some cases other variables, too) is no longer expanded, i.e. previously we saw * expecting success: test script using /path/to/git/t/trash/svnrepo but now it is: * expecting success: test script using "$svnrepo" Signed-off-by: Bryan Donlan <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2008-03-13add test_cmp function for test scriptsJeff King
Many scripts compare actual and expected output using "diff -u". This is nicer than "cmp" because the output shows how the two differ. However, not all versions of diff understand -u, leading to unnecessary test failure. This adds a test_cmp function to the test scripts and switches all "diff -u" invocations to use it. The function uses the contents of "$GIT_TEST_CMP" to compare its arguments; the default is "diff -u". On systems with a less-capable diff, you can do: GIT_TEST_CMP=cmp make test Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2008-03-07get_pathspec(): die when an out-of-tree path is givenJunio C Hamano
An earlier commit d089ebaa (setup: sanitize absolute and funny paths) made get_pathspec() aware of absolute paths, but with a botched interface that forced the callers to count the resulting pathspecs in order to detect an error of giving a path that is outside the work tree. This fixes it, by dying inside the function. We had ls-tree test that relied on a misfeature in the original implementation of its pathspec handling. Leading slashes were silently removed from them. However we allow giving absolute pathnames (people want to cut and paste from elsewhere) that are inside work tree these days, so a pathspec that begin with slash _should_ be treated as a full path. The test is adjusted to match the updated rule for get_pathspec(). Earlier I mistook three tests given by Robin that they should succeed, but these are attempts to add path outside work tree, which should fail loudly. These tests also have been fixed.

2008-02-05git-add: adjust to the get_pathspec() changes.Junio C Hamano
We would need to notice and fail if command line had a nonsense pathspec. Earlier get_pathspec() returned all the inputs including bad ones, but the new one issues warnings and removes offending ones from its return value, so the callers need to be adjusted to notice it. Additional test scripts were initially from Robin Rosenberg, further fixed. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2008-02-05setup: sanitize absolute and funny paths in get_pathspec()Junio C Hamano
The prefix_path() function called from get_pathspec() is responsible for translating list of user-supplied pathspecs to list of pathspecs that is relative to the root of the work tree. When working inside a subdirectory, the user-supplied pathspecs are taken to be relative to the current subdirectory. Among special path components in pathspecs, we used to accept and interpret only "." ("the directory", meaning a no-op) and ".." ("up one level") at the beginning. Everything else was passed through as-is. For example, if you are in Documentation/ directory of the project, you can name Documentation/howto/maintain-git.txt as: howto/maintain-git.txt ../Documentation/howto/maitain-git.txt ../././Documentation/howto/maitain-git.txt but not as: howto/./maintain-git.txt $(pwd)/howto/maintain-git.txt This patch updates prefix_path() in several ways: - If the pathspec is not absolute, prefix (i.e. the current subdirectory relative to the root of the work tree, with terminating slash, if not empty) and the pathspec is concatenated first and used in the next step. Otherwise, that absolute pathspec is used in the next step. - Then special path components "." (no-op) and ".." (up one level) are interpreted to simplify the path. It is an error to have too many ".." to cause the intermediate result to step outside of the input to this step. - If the original pathspec was not absolute, the result from the previous step is the resulting "sanitized" pathspec. Otherwise, the result from the previous step is still absolute, and it is an error if it does not begin with the directory that corresponds to the root of the work tree. The directory is stripped away from the result and is returned. - In any case, the resulting pathspec in the array get_pathspec() returns omit the ones that caused errors. With this patch, the last two examples also behave as expected. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
