From: Johannes Schindelin <johannes.schindelin@gmx.de>

Among other differences relative to GNU sed, BSD sed always ends its
output with a trailing newline, even if the input did not have such a
trailing newline.

Surprisingly, this makes three httpd-based tests fail on macOS: t5616,
t5702 and t5703. ("Surprisingly" because those tests have been around
for some time, but apparently nobody runs them on macOS with a working
Apache2 setup.)

The reason is that we use `sed` in those tests to filter the response of
the web server. Apart from the fact that we use GNU constructs (such as
using a space after the `c` command instead of a backslash and a
newline), we have another problem: BSD sed LF-only newlines while
webservers are supposed to use CR/LF ones.

Even worse, t5616 uses `sed` to replace a binary part of the response
with a new binary part (kind of hoping that the replaced binary part
does not contain a 0x0a byte which would be interpreted as a newline).

To that end, it calls on Perl to read the binary pack file and
hex-encode it, then calls on `sed` to prefix every hex digit pair with a
`\x` in order to construct the text that the `c` statement of the `sed`
invocation is supposed to insert. So we call Perl and sed to construct a
sed statement. The final nail in the coffin is that BSD sed does not
even interpret those `\x<hex>` constructs.

Let's just replace all of that by Perl snippets. With Perl, at least, we
do not have to deal with GNU vs BSD semantics, we do not have to worry
about unwanted trailing newlines, and we do not have to spawn commands
to construct arguments for other commands to be spawned (i.e. we can
avoid a whole lot of shell scripting complexity).

The upshot is that this fixes t5616, t5702 and t5703 on macOS with
Apache2.

Hmm, this is interesting - all tests (that are executed) are passing
on FreeBSD, in CI.

I tried on FreeBSD and do not see a trailing newline added; I'm not
sure how sed behaves on other BSDs. However, you probably want to
refer to macOS sed rather than BSD sed in the commit.

Hmm, shouldn't the test-oid token "sed" whose value is set up in the
setup section of this test script also be renamed to "perl"?  Or, if
we are actively taking advantage of the fact that the syntax of the
replacement operator is the same between the languages, perhaps "sed"
is better renamed to something more language agnostic and reflects
the purpose/reason why we extend the packet header by two bytes with
the one-time munging process?

Other than that, this step looked quite sensible.  Thanks.

Hmm, is it because you wanted to backport this down to 'maint'
(otherwise, your tests will start failing in a month) that you left
the "test_oid sed" thing untouched?  If so, that makes sort-of
sense.

I expect that the series will be rerolled, if only for s/BSD/macOS/
mentioned elsewhere in the thread, but in the meantime, I'll rebase
them on 'maint' "as a practice" while queuing.

My bad. I looked at StackOverflow and there the claim was that all BSD
seds behave that way.

Of course, SO always lags behind by a couple years (although even such old
threads are often very useful), so it is possible that _old_ BSD sed
behaved that way.

In any case, I adjusted the commit message.

Related, I saw that Cirrus CI offers FreeBSD builds, maybe you'd be
interested in supporting that out of the box in
https://github.com/git/git?

That's a good point. I target `maint` in v2, and offered an add-on patch
meant to be applied on top of the merge into `master` (or `next`, or
`pu`).

Yeah, I wondered about the different behaviour, and asked on Twitter
about it. You're right, it is historical BSD behaviour and NetBSD at
least still appends the newline. FreeBSD changed this in 2014 -
http://bugs.freebsd.org/160745.

Indeed - there is a .cirrus.yml in git now which builds and runs tests
(on FreeBSD 12.1). I'll look into working with the GitHub organization
owners for git and gitgitgadget to see about allowing Cirrus to access
the repositories.

Oy, I had forgotten that you worked on this. I enabled this in the git and
in the gitgitgadget orgs. The next pushes/PRs should benefit from this.

This works now. When you click on the green checkmarks (and the one red X)
at https://github.com/git/git/branches/active, you will see the
`freebsd_12` build.
