git-diff-helper(1)
==================
v0.1, May 2005
 
NAME
----
git-diff-helper - Generates patch format output for git-diff-*
 
 
SYNOPSIS
--------
'git-diff-helper' [-z] [-R] [-M] [-C]
 
DESCRIPTION
-----------
Reads output from "git-diff-cache", "git-diff-tree" and "git-diff-files" and
generates patch format output.
 
OPTIONS
-------
-z::
	\0 line termination on input
 
-R::
	Output diff in reverse.  This is useful for displaying output from
	"git-diff-cache" which always compares tree with cache or working
	file.  E.g.
 
		git-diff-cache <tree> | git-diff-helper -R file.c
 
	would show a diff to bring the working file back to what
	is in the <tree>.
 
-M::
	Detect renames.
 
-C::
	Detect copies as well as renames.
