- Annotate only the specified line range (lines count from 1).
+-L <start>,<end>::
+ Annotate only the given line range. <start> and <end> can take
+ one of these forms:
+ - number
+If <start> or <end> is a number, it specifies an
+absolute line number (lines count from 1).
+- /regex/
+This form will use the first line matching the given
+POSIX regex. If <end> is a regex, it will search
+starting at the line given by <start>.
+- +offset or -offset
+This is only valid for <end> and will specify a number
+of lines before or after the line given by <start>.
