exit after emitting the supplied error message to the standard error stream.usage
die with the usage message.set_reflog_action
Set GIT_REFLOG_ACTION environment to a given string (typically the name of the program) unless it is already set. Whenever the script runs a git command that updates refs, a reflog entry is created using the value of this string to leave the record of what command updated the ref.git_editor
runs an editor of user’s choice (GIT_EDITOR, core.editor, VISUAL or EDITOR) on a given file, but error out if no editor is specified and the terminal is dumb.is_bare_repository
outputs true or false to the standard output stream to indicate if the repository is a bare repository (i.e. without an associated working tree).cd_to_toplevel
runs chdir to the toplevel of the working tree.require_work_tree
checks if the current directory is within the working tree of the repository, and otherwise dies.require_work_tree_exists
checks if the working tree associated with the repository exists, and otherwise dies. Often done before calling cd_to_toplevel, which is impossible to do if there is no working tree.require_clean_work_tree <action> [<hint>]
checks that the working tree and index associated with the repository have no uncommitted changes to tracked files. Otherwise it emits an error message of the form Cannot <action>: <reason>. <hint>, and dies. Example:get_author_ident_from_commit
require_clean_work_tree rebase "Please commit or stash them."
outputs code for use with eval to set the GIT_AUTHOR_NAME, GIT_AUTHOR_EMAIL and GIT_AUTHOR_DATE variables for a given commit.create_virtual_base
modifies the first file so only lines in common with the second file remain. If there is insufficient common material, then the first file is left empty. The result is suitable as a virtual base input for a 3-way merge.
