SPLITDIFF(1)                                                      SPLITDIFF(1)




NAME

       splitdiff - separate out incremental patches


SYNOPSIS

       splitdiff [-a] [-d] [-p n] [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 for a patch that modifies a/b.c.


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


       --help Display a short usage message.


       --version
              Display the version number of splitdiff.



SEE ALSO

       combinediff(1), lsdiff(1)
