[PATCH] Add -B flag to diff-* brothers.
A new diffcore transformation, diffcore-break.c, is introduced. When the -B flag is given, a patch that represents a complete rewrite is broken into a deletion followed by a creation. This makes it easier to review such a complete rewrite patch. The -B flag takes the same syntax as the -M and -C flags to specify the minimum amount of non-source material the resulting file needs to have to be considered a complete rewrite, and defaults to 99% if not specified. As the new test demonstrates, if a file is a complete rewrite, it is broken into a delete/create pair, which can further be subjected to the usual rename detection if -M or -C is used. For example, if file0 gets completely rewritten to make it as if it were rather based on file1 which itself disappeared, the following happens: The original change looks like this: file0 --> file0' (quite different from file0) file1 --> /dev/null After diffcore-break runs, it would become this: file0 --> /dev/null /dev/null --> file0' file1 --> /dev/null Then diffcore-rename matches them up: file1 --> file0' The internal score values are finer grained now. Earlier maximum of 10000 has been raised to 60000; there is no user visible changes but there is no reason to waste available bits. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
