From: Theodor Negrescu <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: email@example.com Subject: BUG: Git path --config doesn't work with ~ symbol Date: Wed, 5 May 2021 21:06:12 +0300 [thread overview] Message-ID: <CAEumJaDRvU8LP=q3PQ1z6-cg75DmbHE_7OXZVA+nm=-77pVLEg@mail.gmail.com> (raw) Thank you for filling out a Git bug report! Please answer the following questions to help us understand your issue. What did you do before the bug happened? (Steps to reproduce your issue) I ran the command "git config --file ~/git-settings/.gitconfig -l" (git-settings is a repo where I keep my config, the global one is just an include) What did you expect to happen? (Expected behavior) It would list the settings in the file. What happened instead? (Actual behavior) fatal: unable to read config file '~/git-settings/.gitconfig': No such file or directory What's different between what you expected and what actually happened? The ~ symbol should point to my home folder. Anything else you want to add: "git config --file ~/.gitconfig -l" doesn't work either so the ~ symbol is the problem. fatal: unable to read config file '~/.gitconfig': No such file or directory "git config --file .gitconfig -l" works when I run it from my home folder or from git-settings so the --file argument is working.
