From e9854a767208776f4745922945f0982ef5caab66 Mon Sep 17 00:00:00 2001 From: Linus Torvalds Date: Sat, 16 Aug 2008 21:25:40 -0700 Subject: [PATCH] date/time: do not get confused by fractional seconds The date/time parsing code was confused if the input time HH:MM:SS is followed by fractional seconds. Since we do not record anything finer grained than seconds, we could just drop fractional part, but there is a twist. We have taught people that not just spaces but dot can be used as word separators when spelling things like: \$ git log --since 2.days \$ git show @{12:34:56.7.days.ago} and we shouldn't mistake "7" in the latter example as a fraction and discard it. The rules are: - valid days of month/mday are always single or double digits. - valid years are either two or four digits No, we don't support the year 600 _anyway_, since our encoding is based on the UNIX epoch, and the day we worry about the year 10,000 is far away and we can raise the limit to five digits when we get closer. - Other numbers (eg "600 days ago") can have any number of digits, but they cannot start with a zero. Again, the only exception is for two-digit numbers, since that is fairly common for dates ("Dec 01" is not unheard of) So that means that any milli- or micro-second would be thrown out just because the number of digits shows that it cannot be an interesting date. A milli- or micro-second can obviously be a perfectly fine number according to the rules above, as long as it doesn't start with a '0'. So if we have 12:34:56.123 then that '123' gets parsed as a number, and we remember it. But because it's bigger than 31, we'll never use it as such _unless_ there is something after it to trigger that use. So you can say "12:34:56.123.days.ago", and because of the "days", that 123 will actually be meaninful now.
