something fishy with Git commit and log from file

Pascal Obry

The following command fails on my repository:

    $ git commit --file=clog
    fatal: could not read log file 'clog': No such file or directory

    $ cat clog
    toto

Using the following command the commit pass without problem:

    $ cat clog | git commit --file=-

With GDB I get:

$ gdb --args git ci --file=clog
This GDB was configured as "i686-pc-cygwin"...
(gdb) break strbuf_read_file
Breakpoint 1 at 0x44e64a: file strbuf.c, line 301.
(gdb) run
Starting program: /usr/local/bin/git.exe ci --file=clog

Breakpoint 1, strbuf_read_file (sb=0x22cac0, path=0x22ccfa "clog",
hint=0) at strbuf.c:301
301             fd = open(path, O_RDONLY);
(gdb) print path
$1 = 0x0

???? outch, this is strange, or a gdb artifact?

(gdb) n
302             if (fd < 0)
(gdb) print fd
$2 = -1
(gdb) print *0x22ccfa
$3 = 1735355491
(gdb) print (char)*0x22ccfa
$4 = 99 'c'
(gdb) print (char)*0x22ccfb
$5 = 108 'l'
(gdb) print (char)*0x22ccfc
$6 = 111 'o'
(gdb) print (char)*0x22ccfd
$7 = 103 'g'
(gdb) print (char)*0x22ccfe
$8 = 0 '\0'

But looks like path really contains 'clog'!!!

No luck for now to find the problem. Note that the same command pass
fine on other repositories. At this point this looks really like some
kind of memory corruption...

I'm on Windows, using Git for Cygwin and the compiler is:

$ gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 3.4.4 (cygming special, gdc 0.12, using dmd 0.125)

gdb artifact. The breakpoint info shows the correct value.

Could you at that point run the following?

(gdb) p get_current_dir_name()
$1 = ... "..."

If the returned value doesn't match the directory you were in, then
there's a bug in git.

If the function doesn't exist, try:
(gdb) p getwd(malloc(2048))

Luciano,

> If the function doesn't exist, try:
> (gdb) p getwd(malloc(2048))

I got:

(gdb) p (char *)getwd(malloc(2048))
$3 = 0x903680 "/home/obry/dev/repositories/git/AWS"

And this is not the directory I was in. It is the Git root. I was under
/home/obry/dev/repositories/git/AWS/regtests when running the command.

So definitely a Git bug! Can be reproduced with:

    $ mkdir repo && cd repo
    $ git init
    $ mkdir dir
    $ cd dir
    $ echo file > file
    $ echo log > log
    $ git add file
    $ git commit --file=log
    fatal: could not read log file 'log': No such file or directory

Pascal.

Try it without cding down to "dir".

Yes it works. It also works if I do:

     $ echo log > ../log

instead of

     $ echo log > log

Git is looking for the log file at the Git root.

Perhaps something like this.  This must be another one of those
regressions introduced in C rewrite.

[PATCH] files given on the command line are relative to $cwd

Junio C Hamano
In reply to this post by Junio C Hamano
When running "git commit -F file" and "git tag -F file" from a
subdirectory, we should take it as relative to the directory we started
from, not relative to the top-level directory.

This adds a helper function "parse_options_fix_filename()" to make it more
convenient to fix this class of issues.  Ideally, parse_options() should
support a new type of option, "OPT_FILENAME", to do this uniformly, but
this patch is meant to go to 'maint' to fix it minimally.

One thing to note is that value for "commit template file" that comes from
the command line is taken as relative to $cwd just like other parameters,
but when it comes from the configuration varilable 'commit.template', it
is taken as relative to the working tree root as before.  I think this
difference actually is sensible (not that I particularly think
commit.template itself is sensible).

It breaks the "git commit -F -" case, no?

Does it?  Ah, yeah, t7500 #15 does not go down to a subdirectory.

  I'm going in vacation tomorrow so I'm not likely to do that soon, but
I agree it's sensible.

Ok, this squashed in on top of the previous one should cover the case.

Thanks for saving me in time from a major embarrassment.  I already tagged
1.5.6.5 with the botched one but haven't pushed it out, so I can safely
rewind.

Don't we have the same problem with "git show"? If you go into
the "gitweb" directory of the GIT source, "git show HEAD:README" will
show you the toplevel "README" instead of the one in the "gitweb"
directory.

No, git show has different semantics. It has been discussed often in
this list.

You are half correct --- it is not show but tree:path syntax.
