Git pre-commit hook to prevent committing changes with common errors (trailing whitespace, tab/space mixing and conflict markers) from: http://git.xiph.org/speex.git/hooks/pre-commit
#!/bin/sh
#
# An example hook script to verify what is about to be committed.
# Called by git-commit with no arguments. The hook should
# exit with non-zero status after issuing an appropriate message if
# it wants to stop the commit.
#
# To enable this hook, make this file executable.
# This is slightly modified from Andrew Morton's Perfect Patch.
# Lines you introduce should not have trailing whitespace.
# Also check for an indentation that has SP before a TAB.
if git rev-parse --verify HEAD 2>/dev/null
then
git diff-index -p -M --cached HEAD
else
# NEEDSWORK: we should produce a diff with an empty tree here
# if we want to do the same verification for the initial import.
