I'm curious. Why is -1 (or 255) wrong? It was introduced in the first version of get_value in 4ddba79 (git-config-set: add more options - 2005-11-20). Back then it returned -1 when there's regex compile error to distinguish with 0 and 1 (but git-config-set.txt in the same commit did not get update about exit code). Maybe we should update document instead of the code. -- Duy -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
