WG: [git-for-windows/git] log -L/<regex>/,+1 not accepted (#1856)




Please see my original observation below.
Is it possible, to extend the git-log syntax in the way, that it accepts the short -L option (without :file) of blame in unique cases (only one file is logged or respectively the -L expression may be valid for all logged files)? It would be nice for command line users!

Alternatively I could also imagine the extension of the blame functionality in the direction to see a whole history instead of only the last modification. 

Best regards,
Peter Dolland

It would be appropriate, but what @PhilipOakley asked you, @pdolland, was whether this is Windows-specific behavior. Because if it is not, then the feature request would be better sent to git@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (the real Git mailing list; please make sure to send plain-text-only mails).
You saw fit to simply delete the issue reporting template instead of filling it out, so I have no way to assess whether WSL would be an option for you.

I have no possibility to check this on Linux. 

However, I found out, that the documentation of the –L option is different for blame and log. The documented log –L is working, even if the output is not exactly, what I wanted. Nevertheless, I think it would be appropriate, to admit the syntax of blame for log too. 

Best regards,

Have you been able to check if this issue is also present on Linux? It may be a a global Git problem rather than just a G-f-W issue. 

I know there were some fairly recent upstream patches regarding the start,end aspects of the the '-L' option (IIRC mainly about the values spanning the end of the file). 

There are a number of these options that do not carry fully between commands.

$ git log -L'/DRIVER_STATE = "/',+1 -- plm-dev/Wolke_M600_UTF8.java
fatal: -L argument not 'start,end:file' or ':funcname:file': /DRIVER_STATE = "/,+1
whereas blame with the same arguments does it:
$ git blame -L'/DRIVER_STATE = "/',+1 -- plm-dev/Wolke_M600_UTF8.java
51afb3c491 (Peter 2018-04-19 10:23:41 +0200 51) protected static final String DRIVER_STATE = "180419";
The same behavior with git versions 2.5.1 and 2.19.0.windows.1.
