data FileName Source #

FileName is an abstract type intended to facilitate the input and output of unicode filenames.

normPath :: FileName -> FileName Source #

convert a path string into a sequence of directories strings "/", "." and ".." are generally interpreted as expected. Behaviour with too many '..' is to leave them.

Examples: Splitting: "aabbcc" -> ["aa","bb","cc"] Ignoring "." and extra "/": "aa.bb" -> ["aa","bb"] "aa//bb" -> ["aa","bb"] "aabb/" -> ["aa","bb"] Handling "..": "aa..bb/cc" -> ["bb","cc"] "aabb....cc" -> ["cc"] "aa..bb..cc" -> ["cc"] "../cc" -> ["..","cc"]

encodeWhite :: FilePath -> String Source #

encodeWhite translates whitespace in filenames to a darcs-specific format (numerical representation according to ord surrounded by backslashes). Note that backslashes are also escaped since they are used in the encoding.

encodeWhite "hello there" == "hello\32\there"
encodeWhite "hello\there" == "hello\92\there"

decodeWhite :: String -> FilePath Source #

decodeWhite interprets the Darcs-specific "encoded" filenames produced by encodeWhite

decodeWhite "hello\32\there"  == "hello there"
decodeWhite "hello\92\there"  == "hello\there"
decodeWhite "hello\there"   == error "malformed filename"


makeAbsolute :: AbsolutePath -> FilePath -> AbsolutePath Source #

Take an absolute path and a string representing a (possibly relative) path and combine them into an absolute path. If the second argument is already absolute, then the first argument gets ignored. This function also takes care that the result is converted to Posix convention and normalized. Also, parent directories ("..") at the front of the string argument get canceled out against trailing directory parts of the absolute path argument.

Regarding the last point, someone more familiar with how these functions are used should verify that this is indeed necessary or at least useful.

ioAbsolute :: FilePath -> IO AbsolutePath Source #

Interpret a possibly relative path wrt the current working directory.

rootDirectory :: AbsolutePath Source #

The root directory as an absolute path.


useAbsoluteOrStd :: (AbsolutePath -> a) -> a -> AbsolutePathOrStd -> a Source #

Execute either the first or the second argument action, depending on whether the given path is an AbsolutePath or stdin/stdout.



data SubPath Source #

Paths which are relative to the local darcs repository and normalized. Note: These are understood not to have the dot in front.

makeSubPathOf :: AbsolutePath -> AbsolutePath -> Maybe SubPath Source #

Make the second path relative to the first, if possible

floatSubPath :: SubPath -> AnchoredPath Source #

Transform a SubPath into an AnchoredPath.


getUniquePathName :: Bool -> (FilePath -> String) -> (Int -> FilePath) -> IO FilePath Source #

Iteratively tries find first non-existing path generated by buildName, it feeds to buildName the number starting with -1. When it generates non-existing path and it isn't first, it displays the message created with buildMsg. Usually used for generation of the name like path_number when path already exist (e.g. darcs.net_0).

Check for malicious paths

isMaliciousPath :: String -> Bool Source #

What is a malicious path?

A spoofed path is a malicious path.

  1. Darcs only creates explicitly relative paths (beginning with "./"), so any not explicitly relative path is surely spoofed.
  2. Darcs normalizes paths so they never contain "/../", so paths with "/../" are surely spoofed.

A path to a darcs repository's meta data can modify "trusted" patches or change safety defaults in that repository, so we check for paths containing "/_darcs/" which is the entry to darcs meta data.

To do?

  • How about get repositories?
  • Would it be worth adding a --semi-safe-paths option for allowing changes to certain preference files (_darcs/prefs/) in sub repositories'?

TODO: Properly review the way we handle paths on Windows - it's not enough to just use the OS native concept of path separator. Windows often accepts both path separators, and repositories always use the UNIX separator anyway.

isMaliciousSubPath :: String -> Bool Source #

Warning : this is less rigorous than isMaliciousPath but it's to allow for subpath representations that don't start with ./

Tree filtering.

filterFilePaths :: [FilePath] -> AnchoredPath -> t -> Bool Source #

Same as filterPath, but for ordinary FilePaths (as opposed to AnchoredPath).

filterPaths :: [AnchoredPath] -> AnchoredPath -> t -> Bool Source #

Construct a filter from a list of AnchoredPaths, that will accept any path that is either a parent or a child of any of the listed paths, and discard everything else.

AnchoredPaths: relative paths within a Tree. All paths are

data Name Source #


Eq Name Source # 


(==) :: Name -> Name -> Bool #

(/=) :: Name -> Name -> Bool #

Ord Name Source # 


compare :: Name -> Name -> Ordering #

(<) :: Name -> Name -> Bool #

(<=) :: Name -> Name -> Bool #

(>) :: Name -> Name -> Bool #

(>=) :: Name -> Name -> Bool #

max :: Name -> Name -> Name #

min :: Name -> Name -> Name #

Show Name Source # 


showsPrec :: Int -> Name -> ShowS #

show :: Name -> String #

showList :: [Name] -> ShowS #

newtype AnchoredPath Source #

This is a type of "sane" file paths. These are always canonic in the sense that there are no stray slashes, no ".." components and similar. They are usually used to refer to a location within a Tree, but a relative filesystem path works just as well. These are either constructed from individual name components (using "appendPath", "catPaths" and "makeName"), or converted from a FilePath ("floatPath" -- but take care when doing that) or .


AnchoredPath [Name] 


Eq AnchoredPath Source # 
Ord AnchoredPath Source # 
Show AnchoredPath Source # 
(Functor m, Monad m) => ApplyMonad Tree (TreeMonad m) Source #

type ApplyMonadBase (TreeMonad m) Source # 

appendPath :: AnchoredPath -> Name -> AnchoredPath Source #

Append an element to the end of a path.

anchorPath :: FilePath -> AnchoredPath -> FilePath Source #

Take a "root" directory and an anchored path and produce a full FilePath. Moreover, you can use anchorPath "" to get a relative FilePath.

isPrefix :: AnchoredPath -> AnchoredPath -> Bool Source #

Check whether a path is a prefix of another path.

parent :: AnchoredPath -> AnchoredPath Source #

Get parent (path) of a given path. foobarbaz -> foo/bar

parents :: AnchoredPath -> [AnchoredPath] Source #

List all parents of a given path. foobarbaz -> [foo, foo/bar]

catPaths :: AnchoredPath -> AnchoredPath -> AnchoredPath Source #

Catenate two paths together. Not very safe, but sometimes useful (e.g. when you are representing paths relative to a different point than a Tree root).

appendToName :: AnchoredPath -> String -> AnchoredPath Source #

Append a String to the last Name of an AnchoredPath.

Unsafe AnchoredPath functions.

floatPath :: FilePath -> AnchoredPath Source #

Take a relative FilePath and turn it into an AnchoredPath. The operation is (relatively) unsafe. Basically, by using floatPath, you are testifying that the argument is a path relative to some common root -- i.e. the root of the associated Tree object. Also, there are certain invariants about AnchoredPath that this function tries hard to preserve, but probably cannot guarantee (i.e. this is a best-effort thing). You should sanitize any FilePaths before you declare them "good" by converting into AnchoredPath (using this function).

replacePrefixPath :: AnchoredPath -> AnchoredPath -> AnchoredPath -> AnchoredPath Source #

Take a prefix path, the changed prefix path, and a path to change. Assumes the prefix path is a valid prefix. If prefix is wrong return AnchoredPath [].
