strbuf.h: integrate api-strbuf.txt documentation Some of strbuf is documented as comments above functions, and some is separate in Documentation/technical/api-strbuf.txt. This makes it annoying to find the appropriate documentation. We'd rather have it all in one place, which means all in the text document, or all in the header. Let's choose the header as that place. Even though the formatting is not quite as pretty, this keeps the documentation close to the related code. The hope is that this makes it easier to find what you want (human-readable comments are right next to the C declarations), and easier for writers to keep the documentation up to date. This is more or less a straight import of the text from api-strbuf.txt into C comments, complete with asciidoc formatting. The exceptions are: 1. All comments created in this way are started with "/**" to indicate they are part of the API documentation. This may help later with extracting the text to pretty-print it. 2. Function descriptions do not repeat the function name, as it is available in the context directly below. So: `strbuf_add`:: Add data of given length to the buffer. from api-strbuf.txt becomes: /** * Add data of given length to the buffer. */ void strbuf_add(struct strbuf *sb, const void *, size_t); As a result, any block-continuation required in asciidoc for that list item was dropped in favor of straight blank-line paragraph (since it is not necessary when we are not in a list item). 3. There is minor re-wording to integrate existing comments and api-strbuf text. In each case, I took whichever version was more descriptive, and eliminated any redundancies. In one case, for strbuf_addstr, the api documentation gave its inline definition; I eliminated this as redundant with the actual definition, which can be seen directly below the comment. 4. The functions in the header file are re-ordered to match the ordering of the API documentation, under the assumption that more thought went into the grouping there.

/**
* strbuf's are meant to be used with all the usual C string and memory
* APIs. Given that the length of the buffer is known, it's often better to
* use the mem* functions than a str* one (memchr vs. strchr e.g.).
* Though, one has to be careful about the fact that str* functions often
* stop on NULs and that strbufs may have embedded NULs.
*
* A strbuf is NUL terminated for convenience, but no function in the
* strbuf API actually relies on the string being free of NULs.
*
* strbufs have some invariants that are very important to keep in mind:
*
* - The `buf` member is never NULL, so it can be used in any usual C
* string operations safely. strbuf's _have_ to be initialized either by
* `strbuf_init()` or by `= STRBUF_INIT` before the invariants, though.

*
* Do *not* assume anything on what `buf` really is (e.g. if it is
* allocated memory or not), use `strbuf_detach()` to unwrap a memory
* buffer from its strbuf shell in a safe way. That is the sole supported
* way. This will give you a malloced buffer that you can later `free()`.
*
* However, it is totally safe to modify anything in the string pointed by
* the `buf` member, between the indices `0` and `len-1` (inclusive).
*
* - The `buf` member is a byte array that has at least `len + 1` bytes
* allocated. The extra byte is used to store a `'\0'`, allowing the
* `buf` member to be a valid C-string. Every strbuf function ensure this
* invariant is preserved.
*
* NOTE: It is OK to "play" with the buffer directly if you work it this
* way:
*
* strbuf_grow(sb, SOME_SIZE); <1>
* strbuf_setlen(sb, sb->len + SOME_OTHER_SIZE);
*
* <1> Here, the memory array starting at `sb->buf`, and of length
* `strbuf_avail(sb)` is all yours, and you can be sure that
* `strbuf_avail(sb)` is at least `SOME_SIZE`.
*
* NOTE: `SOME_OTHER_SIZE` must be smaller or equal to `strbuf_avail(sb)`.
*
* Doing so is safe, though if it has to be done in many places, adding the
* missing API to the strbuf module is the way to go.
*
* WARNING: Do _not_ assume that the area that is yours is of size `alloc
* - 1` even if it's true in the current implementation. Alloc is somehow a
* "private" member that should not be messed with. Use `strbuf_avail()`
* instead.

sb->len = len;
strbuf_setlen: don't write to strbuf_slopbuf strbuf_setlen(., 0) writes '\0' to sb.buf[0], where buf is either allocated and unique to sb, or the global slopbuf. The slopbuf is meant to provide a guarantee that buf is not NULL and that a freshly initialized buffer contains the empty string, but it is not supposed to be written to. That strbuf_setlen writes to slopbuf has at least two implications: First, it's wrong in principle. Second, it might be hiding misuses which are just waiting to wreak havoc. Third, ThreadSanitizer detects a race when multiple threads write to slopbuf at roughly the same time, thus potentially making any more critical races harder to spot. Avoid writing to strbuf_slopbuf in strbuf_setlen. Let's instead assert on the first byte of slopbuf being '\0', since it helps ensure the promised invariant of buf[len] == '\0'. (We know that "len" was already 0, or someone has messed with "alloc". If someone has fiddled with the fields that much beyond the correct interface, they're on their own.) This is a function which is used in many places, possibly also in hot code paths. There are two branches in strbuf_setlen already, and we are adding a third and possibly a fourth (in the assert). In hot code paths, we hopefully reuse the buffer in order to avoid continous reallocations. Thus, after a start-up phase, we should always take the same path, which might help branch prediction, and we would never make the assert. If a hot code path continuously reallocates, we probably have bigger performance problems than this new safety-check. Simple measurements do not contradict this reasoning. 100000000 times resetting a buffer and adding the empty string takes 5.29/5.26 seconds with/without this patch (best of three). Releasing at every iteration yields 18.01/17.87. Adding a 30-character string instead of the empty string yields 5.61/5.58 and 17.28/17.28(!). This patch causes the git binary emitted by gcc 5.4.0 -O2 on my machine to grow from 11389848 bytes to 11497184 bytes, an increase of 0.9%. I also tried to piggy-back on the fact that we already check alloc, which should already tell us whether we are using the slopbuf: if (sb->alloc) { if (len > sb->alloc - 1) die("BUG: strbuf_setlen() beyond buffer"); sb->buf[len] = '\0'; } else { if (len) die("BUG: strbuf_setlen() beyond buffer"); assert(!strbuf_slopbuf[0]); } sb->len = len; That didn't seem to be much slower (5.38, 18.02, 5.70, 17.32 seconds), but it does introduce some minor code duplication. The resulting git binary was 11510528 bytes large (another 0.1% increase). Signed-off-by: Martin Ågren <martin.agren@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>

/**
* Adding data to the buffer
* -------------------------
strbuf.h: integrate api-strbuf.txt documentation Some of strbuf is documented as comments above functions, and some is separate in Documentation/technical/api-strbuf.txt. This makes it annoying to find the appropriate documentation. We'd rather have it all in one place, which means all in the text document, or all in the header. Let's choose the header as that place. Even though the formatting is not quite as pretty, this keeps the documentation close to the related code. The hope is that this makes it easier to find what you want (human-readable comments are right next to the C declarations), and easier for writers to keep the documentation up to date. This is more or less a straight import of the text from api-strbuf.txt into C comments, complete with asciidoc formatting. The exceptions are: 1. All comments created in this way are started with "/**" to indicate they are part of the API documentation. This may help later with extracting the text to pretty-print it. 2. Function descriptions do not repeat the function name, as it is available in the context directly below. So: `strbuf_add`:: Add data of given length to the buffer. from api-strbuf.txt becomes: /** * Add data of given length to the buffer. */ void strbuf_add(struct strbuf *sb, const void *, size_t); As a result, any block-continuation required in asciidoc for that list item was dropped in favor of straight blank-line paragraph (since it is not necessary when we are not in a list item). 3. There is minor re-wording to integrate existing comments and api-strbuf text. In each case, I took whichever version was more descriptive, and eliminated any redundancies. In one case, for strbuf_addstr, the api documentation gave its inline definition; I eliminated this as redundant with the actual definition, which can be seen directly below the comment. 4.

/**
* This function can be used to expand a format string containing
* placeholders. To that end, it parses the string and calls the specified
* function for every percent sign found.
*
* The callback function is given a pointer to the character after the `%`
* and a pointer to the struct strbuf. It is expected to add the expanded
* version of the placeholder to the strbuf, e.g. to add a newline
* character if the letter `n` appears after a `%`. The function returns
* the length of the placeholder recognized and `strbuf_expand()` skips
* over it.
*
* The format `%%` is automatically expanded to a single `%` as a quoting
* mechanism; callers do not need to handle the `%` placeholder themselves,
* and the callback function will not be invoked for this placeholder.
*
* All other characters (non-percent and not skipped ones) are copied
* verbatim to the strbuf. If the callback returned zero, meaning that the
* placeholder is unknown, then the percent sign is copied, too.
*
* In order to facilitate caching and to make it possible to give
* parameters to the callback, `strbuf_expand()` passes a context
* pointer with any kind of data.

strbuf.h: integrate api-strbuf.txt documentation Some of strbuf is documented as comments above functions, and some is separate in Documentation/technical/api-strbuf.txt. This makes it annoying to find the appropriate documentation. We'd rather have it all in one place, which means all in the text document, or all in the header. Let's choose the header as that place. Even though the formatting is not quite as pretty, this keeps the documentation close to the related code. The hope is that this makes it easier to find what you want (human-readable comments are right next to the C declarations), and easier for writers to keep the documentation up to date. This is more or less a straight import of the text from api-strbuf.txt into C comments, complete with asciidoc formatting. The exceptions are: 1. All comments created in this way are started with "/**" to indicate they are part of the API documentation. This may help later with extracting the text to pretty-print it. 2.
