Re: [PATCH 3/5] rebase -i: add exec commands via the rebase--helper




Hi Liam,

could I ask for a favor? I'd like the oneline to start with

	rebase -i -x: ...

(this would help future me to realize what this commit touches already
from the concise graph output I favor).

Since Junio did not comment on the commit message: could you replace
`aim` by `aims`, `enhacement` by `enhancement` and `comming` by `coming`?

Maybe `add-exec-commands`? I know it is longer to type, but these options do
not need to be typed interactively and the longer name would be consistent
with the function name.

As the code in add_exec_commands() may appear convoluted (why not simply
append the command after any pick?), the original comment would be really
nice here:

	/*
	 * Add commands after pick and (series of) squash/fixup commands
	 * in the todo list.
	 */

The todo_list.buf has been initialized already (via TODO_LIST_INIT), no
need to reset it again.

As Junio pointed out so gently: there is a helper function that does this
all very conveniently for us:

	if (strbuf_read_file(&todo_list.buf, todo_file, 0) < 0)
		return error_errno(_("could not read '%s'"), todo_file);

And as I realized looking at the surrounding code: you probably just
inherited my inelegant code by copy-editing from another function in
sequencer.c. Should you decide to add a preparatory patch to your patch
series that converts these other callers, or even refactors all that code
that reads the git-rebase-todo file and then parses it, I would be quite
happy... :-) (although I would understand if you deemed this outside the
purpose of your patch series).

The variable `res` is not really used here. Let's just put the
parse_insn_buffer() call inside the if ().

This smells like another copy-edited snippet that originated from my
brain, and I am not at all proud by the complexity I used there.

The function should also check for errors during writing. So how about
something like this instead?

	struct strbuf *buf = &todo_list.buf;
	size_t offset = 0, command_len = strlen(command);
	int first = 1, i;
	struct todo_item *item;

	...

	/* insert <command> before every pick except the first one */
	for (item = todo_list.items, i = 0; i < todo_list.nr; i++, item++)
		if (item->command == TODO_PICK) {
			if (first)
				first = 0;
			else {
				strbuf_splice(buf,
					      item->offset_in_buf + offset, 0,
					      command, command_len);
				offset += command_len;
			}
		}

	/* append a final <command> */
	strbuf_complete_list(buf);
	strbuf_add(buf, command, command_len);

	i = write_message(buf->buf, buf->len, todo_file, 0);
	todo_list_release(&todo_list);
	return i;

Ciao,
Dscho
