NAME

splitdiff − separate out incremental patches

SYNOPSIS

splitdiff [−a] [−d] [−D dir] [−p n] [−E] [file]

splitdiff {[−−help] | [−−version]}

DESCRIPTION

If you have a patch file composed of several incremental patches, you can use splitdiff to separate them out. You may want to do this in preparation for re−combining them with combinediff(1).

The effect of running splitdiff is to separate its input into a set of output files, with no output file patching the same file more than once.

OPTIONS

−a

Split out every single file−level patch.

−d

Create file names such as a_b.c.patch for a patch that modifies a/b.c.

−D dir

Write output files into subdirectory dir. Implies −d.

−p n

Strip the first n components of the pathname to aid comparisons.

−E

Don't use .patch filename extension when writing output files.

−−help

Display a short usage message.

−−version

Display the version number of splitdiff.

SEE ALSO

combinediff(1), lsdiff(1)
