[PATCH v2 0/2] t1500-rev-parse: re-write t1500

Michael Rappazzo
Differences between v1[1]:
        - Rebased the change on master.
        - Added a test-lib function `test_stdout` which is similar to `test_cmp`.
          This addition is based on a patch from Jeff King[2] found the same
          discussion.
        - Cleaned up the use of subshells as recommended in the discussion.

[PATCH v2 1/2] test-lib: add a function to compare an expection with stdout from a command

Michael Rappazzo
test_stdout accepts an expection and a command to execute.  It will execute
the command and then compare the stdout from that command to an expectation.
If the expectation is not met, a mock diff output is written to stderr.

[PATCH v2 2/2] t1500-rev-parse: rewrite each test to run in isolation

Michael Rappazzo
In reply to this post by Michael Rappazzo
t1500-rev-parse has many tests which change directories and leak
environment variables.  This makes it difficult to add new tests without
minding the environment variables and current directory.

Each test is now setup, executed, and cleaned up without leaving anything
behind.  Test comparisons been converted to use test_cmp or test_stdout.

Rather long subject. Perhaps:

    test-lib: add convenience function to check command output

I wonder if this deserves more flexibility by accepting a comparison
operator, such as = and !=, similar to test_line_count()? Although, I
suppose such functionality could be added later if deemed useful.

> Based-on-a-patch-by: Jeff King <[hidden email]>

Since Peff wrote the actual code[1], it might be worthwhile to give
him authorship by prepending the commit message with a "From: Jeff
King <[hidden email]>" header.

test_cmp?

Hmm, considering that $(...) collapses each whitespace run (including
newlines) down to a single space, I don't see how you could get a
multi-line result.

By the way, either the documentation should mention this limitation
("not possible to check multi-line output") or the implementation
should be upgraded to support it.

This faux diff output is quite a bit more noisy than the simple error
message emitted by Peff's original[1] and it doesn't provide any
additional useful information, so it doesn't feel like an improvement.
Adding quotes around $expect and $actual in Peff's error message would
probably be an improvement, though.

IMHO the funny syntax would outweigh the readability benefits. Unlike
test_line_count(), which is abstracting a portability solution, this is
mostly just about trying to save a few lines.

Though I do actually find that:

  test_stdout false git rev-parse --whatever

isn't great, because there's no syntactic separator between the expected
output and the actual command to run. So I dunno, maybe it would be
better as:

  test_stdout false = git rev-parse --whatever

and then you get "!=" for free later on if you want it.

We could also do:

  test_stdout git rev-parse --whatever <<-\EOF
  false
  EOF

which is more robust for multi-line output, but I think part of the
point is to keep these as simple one-liners. You're not buying all that
much over:

  cat >expect <<-\EOF &&
  false
  EOF
  git rev-parse --whatever >actual &&
  test_cmp expect actual

Though I do admit I've considered such a helper for some tests where
that pattern is repeated ad nauseam.

Michael contacted me offline asking how to credit, and I actually
suggested the "Based-on" route. I'm OK with it either way.

And for the record, my contribution is:

Re: [PATCH v2 2/2] t1500-rev-parse: rewrite each test to run in isolation

Overall, I'm not enthused about how this patch unrolls the systematic
function-driven approach taken by the original code and turns it into
a series of highly repetitive individual tests. Not only does it make
the patch mind-numbing to review, but it is far too easy for errors
to creep into the conversion which simply wouldn't exist if a
systematic approach was used (whether via function, table, or
for-loops).

The very fact that you missed several test_stdout conversion
opportunities and didn't notice a bit of gunk (an unnecessary
">actual") or several bogus and misspelled "test_config care.bar ="
invocations, makes a good argument that this patch's approach is
undesirable.

The fact that I also missed these problems when reading through the
patch hammers the point home. It wasn't until I started actually
changing the patch in order to present you with a "here's a diff atop
your patch which fixes the issues" as a convenience, that I noticed
the more serious problems.

You forgot to convert this test_cmp to test_stdout.

You forgot to convert this 'test' to test_stdout.

Nit: Here and one other place, you could quote this: "$(pwd)/.git"

Ditto: test_cmp => test_stdout

Is there a reason you chose to use test_config rather than the more
concise '-c foo=bar' as suggested by the review[1]?

Is setting core.bare to "" really the same as undefining it, or is
the effect the same only as an accident of implementation? (Genuine
question; I haven't checked.)

Drop the unnecessary "$(pwd)"/ here and elsewhere.

Drop the unnecessary '>actual' redirection.

What is "core.bar =" (here and elsewhere)?

You could coalesce these two test_when_finished invocations:

    test_when_finished "rm -rf work repo.git" &&

Windows folk might appreciate it since process spawning is expensive
and slow there.

For convenience, here's a diff atop your patch which addresses the
above issues (except the question about core.bare set to "" versus
being undefined). However, as noted above, I think this patch's
approach is going in the wrong direction.

Agreed. I wouldn't mind the version where test_stdout grabs "expected"
from <<EOF, but, as you say, it doesn't buy much over the manually
prepared test_cmp version.

I suppose that the one-liner form of test_stdout could have its uses,
however, it bothers me for a couple reasons: (1) it's not generally
useful like the version which grabs "expected" from <<EOF, (2) it
squats on a nice concise name which would better suit the <<EOF
version.

Anyhow, this may all be moot (for now) since I think this patch series
is going in the wrong direction entirely by abandoning the systematic
approach taken by the original t1500 code, as explained in my
review[1]. If modernization of t1500 retains a systematic approach,
then the repetitive code which prompted the suggestion of test_stdout
won't exist in the first place.

I think you could get around your second objection by making "-" a magic
token, like:

  test_stdout - = git rev-parse ... <<-\EOF
  false
  EOF

Though I admit the combination of "-" and "=" is pretty ugly to read.

I'm OK with abandoning this line of inquiry, too. This may be a case
where a little repetition makes things a lot less magical to a reader,
and it's not worth trying to devise the perfect helper.

Fair enough. I haven't really followed the other part of the series very
closely.

Re: [PATCH v2 2/2] t1500-rev-parse: rewrite each test to run in isolation

Here and in the following tests as well: some shells don't cope that well
with a one-shot environmental variable set in front of a shell function.
See commit 512477b17528:

     tests: use "env" to run commands with temporary env-var settings

     Ordinarily, we would say "VAR=VAL command" to execute a tested
     command with environment variable(s) set only for that command.
     This however does not work if 'command' is a shell function (most
     notably 'test_must_fail'); the result of the assignment is retained
     and affects later commands.

     To avoid this, we used to assign and export environment variables
     and run such a test in a subshell, like so:

             (
                     VAR=VAL && export VAR &&
                     test_must_fail git command to be tested
             )

     But with "env" utility, we should be able to say:

             test_must_fail env VAR=VAL git command to be tested

     which is much shorter and easier to read.

Not only that: setting an environment variable in front of a shell
function invocation keeps the variable's value in some (most?) shells.
This occurs frequently in the new code. I don't know whether we have a
shorter pattern than

        (
                GIT_DIR=../.git &&
                export GIT_DIR &&
                test_stdout "" git -C work rev-parse --show-prefix
        )

No, it doesn't. It only removes trailing newlines:

~:1004> frotz=$(echo 1; echo; echo 2; echo; echo; echo); echo "$frotz"
1

2
~:1005>

While reviewing the patch, I stared at that code for a good while
thinking that there was something about it I ought to remember but
couldn't, so thanks for the reminder (and j6t's too).

Considering that this patch is probably going in the wrong direction
and that if, when re-rolled, it takes a systematic approach testing
that the original code uses, then the "need" for test_stdout
effectively disappears, so this issue should go away too (but it's
good to remember, nevertheless).

Thanks for the correction.
