Inconsistent Behavior of `inspect` Command on Linux and Windows

Answered

Hi IntelliJ Community,

I'm encountering an issue with the `inspect` command that behaves inconsistently between Linux and Windows environments. Here’s a detailed description of the problem:

Issue Description:

I am using the `inspect` command as part of my automated workflow to analyze code changes. My workflow involves applying a large Git patch, running the `inspect` command, and then reviewing the changes. However, the outcome differs significantly between Linux and Windows.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Apply a large Git patch:
    git apply --reject --whitespace=fix patchFile.patch
  2. Run `inspect` command:
    ./inspect.sh /path/to/project /path/to/inspectionProfile /path/to/reportsFolder -changes -format json
  3. Check Git status:
    git diff --staged --shortstat

Observed Behavior:

Windows:

  • The `inspect` command runs and the staged changes remain consistent.
  • Git status shows all expected changes as staged.
  • Around 50 JSON files are generated.

Linux:

  • The `inspect` command runs but the staged changes become inconsistent.
  • Git status shows fewer files staged and some files left untracked or modified but not staged.
  • Around 6 JSON files are generated.

Environment Details:

Windows:
OS: Windows 10
IntelliJ IDEA Version: ideaIC-2024.1.1
Git Version: 2.44.0

Linux:
OS: Linux
IntelliJ IDEA Version: idea-IC-241.15989.150
Git Version: 2.43.0

What I Have Tried:

  1. Ensuring consistent Git configurations: Set `core.filemode` to `false` on Linux to match Windows.
  2. Checking file permissions: Ensured that file permissions are consistent and appropriate.
  3. Manual verification: Manually verified that the patch applies correctly and all changes are staged before running `inspect`.

Despite these efforts, the inconsistency persists. I'm seeking advice on what might be causing this behavior and how to achieve consistent results across both environments.

Questions:

  1. Is there any known issue with the `inspect` command on Linux that could cause such behavior?
  2. Are there any specific configurations or environment setups that need to be considered for consistent behavior?
  3. Has anyone else encountered a similar issue and found a workaround or solution?

Any insights or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your help!

Can you show git status output before and after running the inspection?
What happens with the changes after inspection?
