262 * Reference iterators
263 *
264 * A reference iterator encapsulates the state of an in-progress
265 * iteration over references. Create an instance of `struct
266 * ref_iterator` via one of the functions in this module.
267 *
268 * A freshly-created ref_iterator doesn't yet point at a reference. To
269 * advance the iterator, call ref_iterator_advance(). If successful,
270 * this sets the iterator's refname, oid, and flags fields to describe
271 * the next reference and returns ITER_OK. The data pointed at by
272 * refname and oid belong to the iterator; if you want to retain them
273 * after calling ref_iterator_advance() again or calling
274 * ref_iterator_abort(), you must make a copy. When the iteration has
275 * been exhausted, ref_iterator_advance() releases any resources
276 * assocated with the iteration, frees the ref_iterator object, and
277 * returns ITER_DONE. If you want to abort the iteration early, call
278 * ref_iterator_abort(), which also frees the ref_iterator object and
279 * any associated resources. If there was an internal error advancing
280 * to the next entry, ref_iterator_advance() aborts the iteration,
281 * frees the ref_iterator, and returns ITER_ERROR.
282 *
283 * The reference currently being looked at can be peeled by calling
284 * ref_iterator_peel(). This function is often faster than peel_ref(),
285 * so it should be preferred when iterating over references.
286 *
287 * Putting it all together, a typical iteration looks like this:
288 *
289 * int ok;
290 * struct ref_iterator *iter = ...;
291 *
292 * while ((ok = ref_iterator_advance(iter)) == ITER_OK) {
293 * if (want_to_stop_iteration()) {
294 * ok = ref_iterator_abort(iter);
295 * break;
296 * }
297 *

299 * if (!(iter->flags & REF_ISSYMREF))
300 * printf("%s is %s\n", iter->refname, oid_to_hex(&iter->oid));
301 *
302 * // If you need to peel the reference:

548 * Read a reference from the specified reference store, non-recursively.

550 *
551 * - If refname is the name of a normal reference, fill in sha1
552 * (leaving referent unchanged).
553 *
554 * - If refname is the name of a symbolic reference, write the full
555 * name of the reference to which it refers (e.g.
556 * "refs/heads/master") to referent and set the REF_ISSYMREF bit in
557 * type (leaving sha1 unchanged). The caller is responsible for
558 * validating that referent is a valid reference name.
559 *
560 * WARNING: refname might be used as part of a filename, so it is
561 * important from a security standpoint that it be safe in the sense
562 * of refname_is_safe(). Moreover, for symrefs this function sets
563 * referent to whatever the repository says, which might not be a
564 * properly-formatted or even safe reference name. NEITHER INPUT NOR
565 * OUTPUT REFERENCE NAMES ARE VALIDATED WITHIN THIS FUNCTION.
566 *
567 * Return 0 on success. If the ref doesn't exist, set errno to ENOENT
568 * and return -1. If the ref exists but is neither a symbolic ref nor
569 * a sha1, it is broken; set REF_ISBROKEN in type, set errno to
570 * EINVAL, and return -1. If there is another error reading the ref,
571 * set errno appropriately and return -1.
572 *
573 * Backend-specific flags might be set in type as well, regardless of
574 * outcome.
575 *
576 * It is OK for refname to point into referent. If so:
577 *
578 * - if the function succeeds with REF_ISSYMREF, referent will be
579 * overwritten and the memory formerly pointed to by it might be
580 * changed or even freed.
581 *
582 * - in all other cases, referent will be untouched, and therefore
583 * refname will still be valid and unchanged.
