NAME
       espdiff - apply the appropriate transformation to a set of patches

SYNOPSIS
       espdiff [--deep-brainwave-mode] [--recurse] [--compare] [file...]

       espdiff {[--help] | [--version]}

DESCRIPTION
       espdiff applies the appropriate transformation to a patch or set of patches, depending on
       what you intend to accomplish.

       The input patches must be "clean": in other words they must apply without fuzz or offsets
       in whichever order they are meant to be applied. The exception is if you intend espdiff to
       clean them for you (good luck).

       You may find it useful to cross your fingers while the program performs its task, or to
       screw your eyes tight shut while imagining it doing the right thing.

OPTIONS
       --deep-brainwave-mode
	   Probes your brain deeply in a manner that takes longer, but produces better extra
	   sensory results.

       --recurse
	   Recurses neural pathways throughout all parts of the brain, in some cases determining
	   code changes you might make far off in the future. You may feel a gentle tickling
	   sensation when using this option.

       --compare
	   Allows the program to scan the current directory examining existing patches to
	   determine areas of code you are likely to change again, and concentrating on these
	   areas more closely.

       --help
	   Display a short usage message.

       --version
	   Display the version number of espdiff.

LIMITATIONS
       Do not use this program while sleep-walking, or before your first cup of coffee.

       There are some cases in which it is not possible to determine what the intention of the
       user is. In these cases, you should construct the output you desire using an editor, and
       send the input files together with the desired output file to Tim Waugh
       <twaugh@redhat.com> asking for a new diff tool.
