git-diff-files(1)
=================
v0.1, May 2005
 
NAME
----
git-diff-files - Compares files in the working tree and the cache
 
 
SYNOPSIS
--------
'git-diff-files' [-p] [-q] [-r] [-z] [-M] [<pattern>...]
 
DESCRIPTION
-----------
Compares the files in the working tree and the cache.  When paths
are specified, compares only those named paths.  Otherwise all
entries in the cache are compared.  The output format is the
same as "git-diff-cache" and "git-diff-tree".
 
OPTIONS
-------
-p::
	generate patch (see section on generating patches).
 
-q::
	Remain silent even on nonexisting files
 
-M::
	Detect renames; implies -p.
 
-r::
	This flag does not mean anything.  It is there only to match
	git-diff-tree.  Unlike git-diff-tree, git-diff-files always looks
	at all the subdirectories.
 
 
Output format
-------------
include::diff-format.txt[]
