NAME

splitdiff – separate out incremental patches

SYNOPSIS

splitdiff [-a] [-d] [-D dir] [-p n] [-E] [file]

splitdiff {[–help] | [–version]}

DESCRIPTION

If you have a patch file composed of several incremental patches, you
can use splitdiff to separate them out. You may want to do this in
preparation for re-combining them with combinediff.

The effect of running splitdiff is to separate its input into a set of
output files, with no output file patching the same file more than
once.

OPTIONS

-a
Split out every single file-level patch.

-d
Create file names such as a_b.c.patch for a patch that modifies
a/b.c.

-D dir
Write output files into subdirectory dir. Implies -d.

-p n
Strip the first n components of the pathname to aid comparisons.

-E
Don’t use .patch filename extension when writing output files.

–help
Display a short usage message.

–version
Display the version number of splitdiff.
