Swap two inputs; that is, show differences from index or
on-disk file to tree contents.
+ When run from a subdirectory of the project, it can be
+ told to exclude changes outside the directory and show
+ pathnames relative to it with this option. When you are
+ not in a subdirectory (e.g. in a bare repository), you
+ can name which subdirectory to make the output relative
+ to by giving a <path> as an argument.
