2006-05-14Add "--summary" option to git diff.Sean
Remove the need to pipe git diff through git apply to get the extended headers summary. Signed-off-by: Sean Estabrooks <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2006-04-16diff-options: add --patch-with-statJohannes Schindelin
With this option, git prepends a diffstat in front of the patch. Since I really, really do not know what a diffstat of a combined diff ("merge diff") should look like, the diffstat is not generated for these. Signed-off-by: Johannes Schindelin <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2006-04-13diff-options: add --stat (take 2)Johannes Schindelin
Now, you can say "git diff --stat" (to get an idea how many changes are uncommitted), or "git log --stat". Signed-off-by: Johannes Schindelin <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2006-04-04Support for pickaxe matching regular expressionsPetr Baudis
git-diff-* --pickaxe-regex will change the -S pickaxe to match POSIX extended regular expressions instead of fixed strings. The regex.h library is a rather stupid interface and I like pcre too, but with any luck it will be everywhere we will want to run Git on, it being POSIX.2 and all. I'm not sure if we can expect platforms like AIX to conform to POSIX.2 or if win32 has regex.h. We might add a flag to Makefile if there is a portability trouble potential.

2005-12-20diff --abbrev: document --abbrev=<n> form.Junio C Hamano
It was implemented there but was not advertised. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-12-20diff: --abbrev optionJunio C Hamano
When I show transcripts to explain how something works, I often find myself hand-editing the diff-raw output to shorten various object names in the output. This adds --abbrev option to the diff family, which shortens diff-raw output and diff-tree commit id headers. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-17diff: --full-indexJunio C Hamano
A new option, --full-index, is introduced to diff family. This causes the full object name of pre- and post-images to appear on the index line of patch formatted output, to be used in conjunction with --allow-binary-replacement option of git-apply. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-11-11Change 'cache' to 'index' in the docsLukas_Sandström
This patch makes the documentation refer to the index as index instead of cache, but some references still remain. (e.g. git-update-index.txt) Signed-off-by: Lukas Sandström <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-10-29Remove -r from common diff options documentation in one more

2005-10-05Some typos and light editing of various manpagesChristian Meder
Typos, light editing and clarifications. Signed-off-by: Christian Meder <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-09-25Diff: --name-status output format.Junio C Hamano
The new output format shows only the status letter and paths. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-09-25Diff: -l<num> to limit rename/copy detection.Junio C Hamano
When many paths are modified, rename detection takes a lot of time. The new option -l<num> can be used to disable rename detection when more than <num> paths are possibly created as renames. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-08-30Documentaion updates.Junio C Hamano
Mostly making the formatted html prettier. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <> (cherry picked from 7adf1f15ebe074d4767df941817a6cf86d8e2533 commit)
2005-08-06[PATCH] Assorted documentation patchesJohannes Schindelin
[jc: Johannes spent time and effort to see how consistent our use of terminilogy is, and as a byproduct made these corrections not related to the terminology unification. I really appreciate it.] Signed-off-by: Johannes Schindelin <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-07-13[PATCH] Clean up diff option descriptions.Junio C Hamano
I got tired of maintaining almost duplicated descriptions in diff-* brothers, both in usage string and documentation. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
