displaying the git-specific bash prompt on Windows/MinGW takes quite
long, long enough to be noticeable. This is mainly caused by the
numerous fork()s and exec()s to create subshells and run git or other
commands, which are rather expensive on Windows.
This patch series eliminates many command substitutions and command
executions in __git_ps1() from top to bottom by replacing them with
bash builtins or consolidating them. A few timing results are shown
in the log message of the last patch.
Changes since v2 :
- The detached HEAD abbreviated object name is now unique and
respects core.abbrev; see patches 5 and 11, replacing v2's patch 9.
(This is why I asked the detached HEAD before root commit thing
- Patches 12 and 16 are new.
- Incorporated Peff's suggestion about using the 'write_script'
helper into patch 2.
- Incorporated Eric's typofix.
- Rephrased a few commit messages.
It applies on top of current master; 2847cae8 (prompt: squelch error
output from cat, 2013-06-14) graduated recently.
This patch series will conflict with Eduardo's work on refactoring the
colorizing function, and the conflict is not trivial. Although there
are still some open questions left with that series (using tput, zsh
tests), those won't affect the conflicts between the two patch series.
So, for the convenience of our maintainer, I picked up Eduardo's
series, took the liberty to apply a fixup commit on top with my
suggestions from , merged the two series, and published the result
Eduardo, could you please also check that my conflict resolution is
