NAME

dehtmldiff – get usable diff from an HTML page

SYNOPSIS

dehtmldiff [file…]

dehtmldiff {[–help] | [–version]}

DESCRIPTION

dehtmldiff creates usable diff files from HTML pages. This is useful in
the scenario where a patch has been posted to a mailing list viewable
via a web page.

The corrected diff is sent to standard output. Note that you will
probably need to use the -l option when applying the patch, in order to
ignore any whitespace differences there may be.

OPTIONS

–help
Display a short usage message.

–version
Display the version number of dehtmldiff.

LIMITATIONS
The way this command works is fairly primitive; it boils down to some
simple text replacements, followed by an unwrapdiff pass. As a result,
all of the limitations that apply to unwrapdiff also apply to
dehtmldiff.
