Hi, it would be nice if grep searched not only in current directory and subdirectories, but in whole tree.
I know I can use ":/" as a pathspec, but since most git commands work tree, I got used to this and forgot that grep is different. It's easy to make a mistake and believe that your code does not contain searched string XXX - because you have searched from a subdirectory, not from the top level of your working tree. OTOH, if grep searches whole tree, you'll notice you get results from outside of CWD and if you don't want that, you will be able to limit the search to '.' I think there were discussion about how there are several git commands which do not search in whole tree by default and that it's going to be changed. I think "add" is one of such commands. Is 'grep' left unchanged? Last discussion I found is from 2011 March (http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.version-control.git/168063/focus=168188) and it says it's not going to be changed :( -- Piotr Krukowiecki -- 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
