Hi!

As part of some experiments on running git on Windows, I found
something unexpected. If I use e.g. bash to run the following in a
repository:

git show HEAD:a\\b

the command stalls for a short while and then exits with 0 and prints
nothing on stdout. I've verified this on git 2.25.0 and 2.21.0. I
would have expected either "fatal: Path 'a\b' does not exist in
'HEAD'" or something of that nature. Nothing in "man git revisions"
hint that backslash is treated specially. Is this a bug or is it an
undocumented feature?

Best regards,
  David Burström

Maybe both. :) This is an interesting case.

The arguments to git-show (like anything that invokes the revision
machinery, like git-log) can be _either_ an object identifier or a
pathspec. Since you didn't provide a "--" separator to disambiguate,
we'll try both.

For your case "HEAD:a\b", as well as the more mundane "HEAD:a-b",
get_oid() realizes they are not valid object identifiers (because the
files don't exist in HEAD^{tree}). So then we consider it as a pathspec.

In the case of "HEAD:a-b", no such file exists in the working tree
either, so we complain:

 $ git show HEAD:a-b
 fatal: Path 'a-b' does not exist in 'HEAD'

and here verify_filename(), which produces the error, is smart enough to
diagnose that the bogus argument looks a lot like a request for a
path-in-tree.

But since 28fcc0b71a (pathspec: avoid the need of "--" when wildcard is
used, 2015-05-02), we allow non-files as pathspecs if they use magic
glob meta-characters (to make it more convenient to use "*.c" or
similar). And "\" is such a meta-character. So we actually diff HEAD
using the pathspec "HEAD:a\b", which of course matches nothing.

You can defeat this by using "--". I.e.:

  [mundane name, dwim logic complains because file doesn't exist]
  $ git show HEAD:a-b
  fatal: Path 'a-b' does not exist in 'HEAD'

  [mundane name, explicit pathspec does diff with no matches]
  $ git show -- HEAD:a-b

  [mundane name, explicit revision complains that it can't be resolved]
  $ git show HEAD:a-b --
  fatal: bad revision 'HEAD:a-b'

  [exotic name, dwim considers it a pathspec due to metacharacter]
  $ git show HEAD:a\\b

  [exotic name, explicit pathspec does the same thing]
  $ git show -- HEAD:a\\b

  [exotic name, explicit revision is just like the mundane case]
  $ git show HEAD:a\\b --
  fatal: bad revision 'HEAD:a\b'

So everything is working as designed, or at least explainable. But I
think there is some room for improvement. A backslash that isn't
followed by a glob meta-character _is_ still a meta character (your
"a\b" would be globbing for "ab"). But it's useless enough that I think
it shouldn't be enough to trigger the "oh, you probably meant this as a
pathspec" DWIM rule.

We _could_ also say "even though this could technically be a pathspec
because of its metacharacter, it looks vaguely enough like a
path-in-tree revision that we shouldn't guess". That I'm less
comfortable with, just because it makes the heuristics even more
magical.

Also, unrelated to your problem, but I find it interesting in the output
above that "git show HEAD:foo --" produces a less useful error message
than "git show HEAD:foo" without the separator, even though the user has
given us even more information about their intent. I think the DWIM
verify_filename() has grown a lot more diagnosis code over the years
that could also be used in the other code path.

This sounds sensible.

Not just it becomes more magical, I am afraid that the code to
implement such a heuristics would be fragile and become a source of
unnecessary bugs.  Let's not go there.

I should learn to use "working as designed or at least explainable"
more often in my responses, by the way.  That's quite a useful and
good phrase ;-)

OK, the patch I came up with is below.

OK. It does mean that:

  git show HEAD:a*

will still quietly produce no output instead of saying "hey, there is no
a* in HEAD". But I think given the lack of bug reports over the years
that this case (and the backslash one I'm fixing) are probably
relatively rare.  The backslash one seems a lot more likely, just
because Windows folks may treat it like a path separator (I'm not sure
if that even works, considering its meaning in a glob, but certainly I
can imagine somebody doing so as an experiment and getting confused by
the result).

Perhaps that can be Git's motto. ;)

Anyway, here's the patch. Even though this is rare, I think it's worth
doing. The code is simple and I don't anticipate anybody complaining
about the tightening.

Subject: verify_filename(): handle backslashes in "wildcards are pathspecs" rule

Commit 28fcc0b71a (pathspec: avoid the need of "--" when wildcard is
used, 2015-05-02) allowed:

  git rev-parse '*.c'

without the double-dash. But the rule it uses to check for wildcards
actually looks for any glob special. This is overly liberal, as it means
that a pattern that doesn't actually do any wildcard matching, like
"a\b", will be considered a pathspec.

If you do have such a file on disk, that's presumably what you wanted.
But if you don't, the results are confusing: rather than say "there's no
such path a\b", we'll quietly accept it as a pathspec which very likely
matches nothing (or at least not what you intended). Likewise, looking
for path "a\*b" doesn't expand the search at all; it would only find a
single entry, "a*b".

This commit switches the rule to trigger only when glob metacharacters
would expand the search, meaning both of those cases will now report an
error (you can still disambiguate using "--", of course; we're just
tightening the DWIM heuristic).

Note that we didn't test the original feature in 28fcc0b71a at all. So
this patch not only tests for these corner cases, but also adds a
regression test for the existing behavior.

I took a look at this, but it gets ugly pretty quickly, so I gave up.
The problem is that all of the good errors are produced by get_oid()
with GET_OID_ONLY_TO_DIE, but the moment where we decide to produce the
bad error is sometimes removed from the get_oid() call. E.g., in
something like "a..b", we'd want to report on whichever of "a" or "b"
caused a problem, but at the point of reporting the error, we only have
the unparsed "a..b".

Certainly this can be overcome, but it seemed like a rabbit-hole that I
didn't feel like going down today. Anybody is welcome to give it a shot.
I suspect the whole thing would be simpler if get_oid() could optionally
return an error string to the caller, instead of forcing us to call it a
second time with the "only to die" flag.

Speaking of which, I did go part-way down a different rabbit-hole in
preparation, and ended up with these patches. So it seemed worth posting
them.

Using the shell "test" here is inflexible, because we can't easily swap
it out for an i18n-aware version like we can with test_cmp and
test_i18ncmp. And it's not even saving us any processes, since we have
to use "cat" to get the output. So let's switch to using test_cmp, which
has the added bonus that it will produce better output if there's a
failure.

Note that not all of the changed outputs here are candidates for
translation, but I've converted all of them for consistency and to
benefit from the better output.

There are several error messages in get_oid() and its children that are
clearly intended for humans, but aren't marked for translation. E.g.:

  $ git show :1:foo
  fatal: Path 'foo' is in the index, but not at stage 1.
  Did you mean ':0:foo'?

Let's mark these for translation. While we're at it, let's switch the
style to be more like our usual error messages: start with a lowercase
letter and omit a period at the end of the line.

This does mean that multi-line messages like the one above don't have
any punctuation between the two sentences. I solved that by adding a
"hint" marker like we'd see from advise(). So the result is:

  $ git show :1:foo
  fatal: path 'foo' is in the index, but not at stage 1
  hint: Did you mean ':0:foo'?

A few tests had to be switched to test_i18ngrep and test_i18ncmp. Since
we were touching them anyway, I also simplified the ones using i18ngrep
a bit for readability.

I'm on the fence about whether the resulting message is clear enough.
Certainly we could just mark them for translation but leave the
capitalization and punctuation as-is.

I actually think _both_ of those lines could be considered hints. And
something like:

  hint: path 'foo' is in the index, but not at stage 1;
  hint: did you mean ':0:foo'?
  fatal: unable to resolve object name ':1:foo'

might be better still. But I suspect the text in that final "fatal"
could be better if done by the caller of get_oid(). So that takes me
back to my earlier suggestion that get_oid() should actually be
collecting this hints as it runs and making them available to the
caller. I punted on that for now, though.

I'm normally in a Unix environment but needed to address a potential
issue in Windows, which indeed
got me confused about the results.

Upon experimenting in said Unix environment with what you outlined
above on making revision and pathspec explicit,
I figured that it becomes a little odd in the case where one would use
a glob meta character in a filename (why anybody would want
that except for academic reasons is beyond me), but it could still be
a source of bugs in tooling interacting with git:

Given a repository initialized with

$ git init && echo a > a && echo '*' > '*' && git add a '*' && git
commit -m "first" && git rm a '*' && git commit -m "second"

there's a bit of a discrepancy when using git show to dump the
contents per revision. In the beginning, everything is normal for
HEAD^ but for HEAD, it's a requirement to use disambiguation to avoid
believing that '*' was an empty file. At the same time, the
disambiguation causes the error message change its nature, for obvious
reasons:

$ git show 'HEAD^:a'
a
$ git show 'HEAD^:a' --
a
$ git show 'HEAD^:*' # presumably get_oid finds the object
*
$ git show 'HEAD^:*' --
*
$ git show 'HEAD:a'
fatal: Path 'a' does not exist in 'HEAD'
$ git show 'HEAD:a' --
fatal: bad revision 'HEAD:a'
$ git show 'HEAD:*'
$ git show 'HEAD:*' --
fatal: bad revision 'HEAD:*'

Indeed, it seems to be working as designed or at least explainably.
I'll make sure to add '--' in my tool integration to deal with this
corner case.

Makes sense.  Thanks.

I'll queue this band-aid on top before making my last pushout for
the day.  Even with poisoned i18n/l10n, die(_(msg)) gives "fatal:"
prefix at the beginning, so that is what test_did_you_mean would
expect to see from a passing test under GIT_TEST_GETTEXT_POISON.

The other hunk is about a test that greps in "error".

Hrmph. I know I tested with GETTEXT_POISON, but you are obviously right
that this doesn't pass. I must have botched something in one of my
rebase passes at the end.

Thanks for catching it, but...

I think we can do this much more simply, by just using i18ncmp:

diff --git a/t/t1506-rev-parse-diagnosis.sh b/t/t1506-rev-parse-diagnosis.sh
index c2b5125c12..62085a89e3 100755

(we'd still need the s/grep/test_i18ngrep/ in your second hunk).

Yeah, "what die(_(...)) under POISON says matches /^fatal:/"
probably is not worth checking and more importantly not something we
would want to rely on.

Yes.  The final amend to 3/3 has become like this.
