+ In interactive commands, allow the user to provide one-letter
+ input with a single key (i.e., without hitting enter).
+ Currently this is used by the `--patch` mode of
+ linkgit:git-add[1], linkgit:git-checkout[1], linkgit:git-commit[1],
+ linkgit:git-reset[1], and linkgit:git-stash[1]. Note that this
+ setting is silently ignored if portable keystroke input
+ is not available; requires the Perl module Term::ReadKey.
+ When an interactive command (such as `git add --patch`) shows
+ a colorized diff, git will pipe the diff through the shell
+ command defined by this configuration variable. The command may
+ mark up the diff further for human consumption, provided that it
+ retains a one-to-one correspondence with the lines in the
+ original diff. Defaults to disabled (no filtering).
