    tests: exercise "git apply" with weird filenames · c51c0da2
    Jonathan Nieder authored
    Check that "git apply" can cope with strange filenames, particularly
    filenames with spaces.
    
    Not all platforms have a sane enough diff -u and expand to
    reliably create the such patches and maybe future versions of GNU
    diff will handle funny characters differently, so this uses
    pre-generated patches.  The script used to generate them is in
    t/t4135/make-patches.
    
    Filenames with tabs are not usable on NTFS; use something like the
    FUNNYNAMES prerequisite from v1.3.0-rc1~67 (2006-03-03) to skip the
    relevant tests when appropriate.  The detection is not shared in
    test-lib.sh to avoid wasting time while running other test scripts.
    
    Backslash is the path separator on Windows, so do not used it in
    file names there (v1.6.3-rc0~93^2~6, 2009-03-13).
    
    Finally, filenames starting with a quotation mark do not behave well
    in msys (see v1.7.0-rc0~94^2, t4030, t4031: work around bogus MSYS
    bash path conversion, 2010-01-01), so skip those tests on Windows,
    too.
