Push a new local branch to a remote Git repository and track it too – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/07/27

Just what I needed: Push a new local branch to a remote Git repository and track it too – Stack Overflow But watch the comments to this answer:

Answer:

In recent versions of Git (1.7.0 and later), you can checkout a new branch:

git checkout -b <branch>

Edit files, add and commit. Then push with the -u option:

git push -u origin <branch>

Git will set up the tracking information during the push.

Comments:

  • git push -u was introduced in Git 1.7.0 (2010-02-12). – Chris Johnsen Jun 4 ’11 at 4:16
  • Would you be kind enough to elaborate? Some git commands do more than one thing, and I’m not sure what origin and mynewfeature refer to. Is mynewfeature a branch name? Is origin a shortcut for a full remote repo url? Also what does the -u flag do? – Costa Mar 6 ’14 at 21:16
  • @Costa ‘origin’ is the name of default remote in Git repository. ‘mynewfeature’ here is branch name. -uis short for --set-upstream—for what it does and why it’s needed I wouldn’t mind some explanation, too. :) – Anton Strogonoff Mar 9 ’14 at 6:07
  • It’s also worth noting that if you have an existing tracking branch already set on the branch you’re pushing, and push.default is set to upstream, this will not do what you think it will do. It will try to push over the existing tracking branch. Use: git push -u origin mynewfeature:mynewfeature or dogit branch --unset-upstream first. – void.pointer May 19 ’14 at 18:07
  • I still needed to ‘git branch –set-upstream-to origin/remote’ in order for ‘git status’ to correctly report my branch status with respect to the remote branch. – Paul Whipp Jul 4 ’14 at 1:17
  • For people using Git from Visual Studio: Actually this is that “Publish Branch” in Visual Studio does. After executing git push with -u parameter i can finally see my branch as published in VS UI. – Puterdo Borato

csc.exe: prevent “does not contain a static ‘Main’ method suitable for an entry point”, use /target:library

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/06/29

Every once in a while I do Command-line Building With csc.exe.

When building libraries, it throws this error:

The reason is that by default it wants to build a program.

Change this default by adding the /target:library parameter.

Batch file to run the most recent vsvars32.bat

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/06/28

The below batch file finds and runs the latest vsvars32.bat on a system.

vsvars32.bat initializes the path and other environment variables to run Visual Studio and command-line tools (like csc.exe, xsd.exe, editbin.exe).

The batch file employs a few tricks from:

  :: Run the most recent vsvars32.bat

  :: test these environment variables that have 110 or 120 in them (future enhancements: support more Visual Studio versions):
  :: Visual Studio .NET 2002: VS70COMNTOOLS=C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET\Common7\Tools\
  :: Visual Studio .NET 2003: VS71COMNTOOLS=C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Common7\Tools\
  :: Visual Studio 2005: VS80COMNTOOLS=C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\Tools\
  :: Visual Studio 2008: VS90COMNTOOLS=C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\Tools\
  :: Visual Studio 2010: VS100COMNTOOLS=C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\Tools\
  :: Visual Studio 2012: VS110COMNTOOLS=C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\Tools\
  :: Visual Studio 2013: VS120COMNTOOLS=C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Common7\Tools\
  :: VS130COMNTOOLS was skipped: http://www.neowin.net/forum/topic/1215607-visual-studio-13-to-be-skipped-vnext-to-be-v14/
  :: Visual Studio 2015: VS130COMNTOOLS=C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\Tools\
  :: They contain `vsvars32.bat` which will update the `PATH` so it includes where `xsd.exe`, `csc.exe`, `editbin.exe` and others reside
  :: Different examples: https://github.com/noop-dev/c-cgdk/blob/master/compile-vscpp.bat
  :: and https://code.google.com/p/xvid4psp/source/browse/trunk/bin/4Gb+patcher.bat
  :: or give it a go for any version: http://chess.eecs.berkeley.edu/ptexternal/src/ptII/ptolemy/actor/lib/fmi/fmus/template/sources/build_fmu.bat

On Windows 7, Visual Studio 2015 wanted Internet Explorer 10… here are the direct links to download it

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/06/20

Boy, don’t you dislike how hard it is to find direct download links

Well, thanks to kenorb and jjlin (slightly edited):

Check: IE6, IE7, IE8, IE9, IE10, IE11 Offline Installers Download Links – kenorb Mar 20 ’15 at 13:39 – http://www.itechtics.com/download-internet-explorer-all-versions/ – note this does not provide hashes.

jjlin:

Try these Microsoft offline installer links:

These may refuse to work if you already have IE 11 installed, though. If it is refused, try this: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/20043971/how-to-downgrade-from-internet-explorer-11-to-internet-explorer-10

And in case these links ever stop working and you must obtain a copy from a non-Microsoft source, here are the SHA-512 hashes for posterity:
