It may be that at one time portions of git were written in Perl, but at this point the git/git repo is all C and Bash, with the exception of some small amount of Perl code bundled in the repo that looks to serve the purpose of providing for git integration into Perl code.

Update:

According to the git repo, Perl comprises about 6.6% of the repository, so it's maybe more than what I saw at first. The breakdown is:

  • C - 48.6%
  • Shell - 36.1%
  • Perl - 6.6%
  • Tcl - 4.5%
  • Python - 2.0%
  • Makefile - 0.8%
  • Other - 1.4%

I suppose, given that git uses git for its own version control, we should be able to look at earlier points in the software's life cycle to see how those numbers changed over time. But I'm not sure how they are being generated for the current snapshot. Might be a fun thing to investigate someday.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
