Make git-diff documentation use [--] when it should.
Two of the cases has "[--] [<path>...]" and two had "-- [<path>...]". Not terribly consistent and potentially confusing. Also add "[--]" to the synopsis so that it's obvious you can use it from the very beginning. Signed-off-by: Brian Gernhardt <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
