2016-04-15test helpers: move test-* to t/helper/ subdirectoryNguyễn Thái Ngọc Duy
This keeps top dir a bit less crowded. And because these programs are for testing purposes, it makes sense that they stay somewhere in t/ Signed-off-by: Nguyễn Thái Ngọc Duy <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2013-12-05replace {pre,suf}fixcmp() with {starts,ends}_with()Christian Couder
Leaving only the function definitions and declarations so that any new topic in flight can still make use of the old functions, replace existing uses of the prefixcmp() and suffixcmp() with new API functions. The change can be recreated by mechanically applying this: $ git grep -l -e prefixcmp -e suffixcmp -- \*.c | grep -v strbuf\\.c | xargs perl -pi -e ' s|!prefixcmp\(|starts_with\(|g; s|prefixcmp\(|!starts_with\(|g; s|!suffixcmp\(|ends_with\(|g; s|suffixcmp\(|!ends_with\(|g; ' on the result of preparatory changes in this series.

2012-07-06vcs-svn: drop no-op reset methodsDavid Barr
Since v1.7.5~42^2~6 (vcs-svn: remove buffer_read_string) buffer_reset() does nothing thus fast_export_reset() also. Signed-off-by: David Barr <> Signed-off-by: Jonathan Nieder <>
2011-03-26vcs-svn: remove buffer_read_stringJonathan Nieder
All previous users of buffer_read_string have already been converted to use the more intuitive buffer_read_binary, so remove the old API to avoid some confusion. Signed-off-by: Jonathan Nieder <>

2011-02-26vcs-svn: add binary-safe read functionJonathan Nieder
buffer_read_string works well for non line-oriented input except for one problem: it does not tell the caller how many bytes were actually written. This means that unless one is very careful about checking for errors (and eof) the calling program cannot tell the difference between the string "foo" followed by an early end of file and the string "foo\0bar\0baz". So introduce a variant that reports the length, too, a thinner wrapper around strbuf_fread. Its result is written to a strbuf so the caller does not need to keep track of the number of bytes read.

2011-02-26t0081 (line-buffer): add buffering testsJonathan Nieder
POSIX makes the behavior of read(2) from a pipe fairly clear: a read from an empty pipe will block until there is data available and any other read will not block, prefering to return a partial result. Likewise, fread(3) and fgets(3) are clearly specified to act as though implemented by calling fgetc(3) in a simple loop. But the buffering behavior of fgetc is less clear. Luckily, no sane platform is going to implement fgetc by calling the equivalent of read(2) more than once. fgetc has to be able to return without filling its buffer to preserve errno when errors are encountered anyway. So let's assume the simpler behavior (trust) but add some tests to catch insane platforms that violate that when they come (verify). First check that fread can handle a 0-length read from an empty fifo. Because open(O_RDONLY) blocks until the writing end is open, open the writing end of the fifo in advance in a subshell. Next try short inputs from a pipe that is not filled all the way. Lastly (two tests) try very large inputs from a pipe that will not fit in the relevant buffers. The first of these tests reads a little more than 8192 bytes, which is BUFSIZ (the size of stdio's buffers) on this Linux machine. The second reads a little over 64 KiB (the pipe capacity on Linux) and is not run unless requested by setting the GIT_REMOTE_SVN_TEST_BIG_FILES environment variable. Signed-off-by: Jonathan Nieder <>
2011-02-26vcs-svn: tweak test-line-buffer to not assume line-oriented inputJonathan Nieder
Do not expect an implicit newline after each input record. Use a separate command to exercise buffer_skip_bytes. Signed-off-by: Jonathan Nieder <>
2011-02-26vcs-svn: make test-line-buffer input format more flexibleJonathan Nieder
Imitate the input format of test-obj-pool to support arbitrary sequences of commands rather than alternating read/copy. This should make it easier to add tests that exercise other line_buffer functions. Signed-off-by: Jonathan Nieder <>
2011-02-26vcs-svn: teach line_buffer to handle multiple input filesJonathan Nieder
Collect the line_buffer state in a newly public line_buffer struct. Callers can use multiple line_buffers to manage input from multiple files at a time. svn-fe's delta applier will use this to stream a delta from svnrdump and the preimage it applies to from fast-import at the same time. The tests don't take advantage of the new features, but I think that's okay. It is easier to find lingering examples of nonreentrant code by searching for "static" in line_buffer.c.

2010-08-15Add stream helper libraryDavid Barr
This library provides thread-unsafe fgets()- and fread()-like functions where the caller does not have to supply a buffer. It maintains a couple of static buffers and provides an API to use them.
