Makes sense. More like prefix=$(git rev-parse --show-prefix) test -z "$prefix" || cd $(git rev-parse --show-cdup) ... pathspec=$(git rev-parse --prefix-pathspec "$prefix" "$1") git ls-files "$pathspec" which may take prefix="D*cumentati*n" (from the previous example), and the user may have given ":(icase)hell*.txt" to "$1". Ideally the scriptors shouldn't have to worry about how to add the prefix to the user supplied pathspec. -- 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
