Per-path attribute based hunk header selection.
This makes"diff -p" hunk headers customizable via gitattributes mechanism. It is based on Johannes's earlier patch that allowed to define a single regexp to be used for everything. The mechanism to arrive at the regexp that is used to define hunk header is the same as other use of gitattributes. You assign an attribute, funcname (because "diff -p" typically uses the name of the function the patch is about as the hunk header), a simple string value. This can be one of the names of built-in pattern (currently, "java" is defined) or a custom pattern name, to be looked up from the configuration file. (in .gitattributes) *.java funcname=java *.perl funcname=perl (in .git/config) [funcname] java = ... # ugly and complicated regexp to override the built-in one. perl = ... # another ugly and complicated regexp to define a new one.
