NAME
lsdiff - show which files are modified by a patch
SYNOPSIS
lsdiff [[-n] | [--line-number]] [[-p n] | [--strip-match=n]] [--strip=n] [--addprefix=PREFIX] [[-s] | [--status]] [[-E] | [--empty-files-as-removed]] [[-i PATTERN] | [--include=PATTERN]] [[-x PATTERN] | [--exclude=PATTERN]] [[-z] | [--decompress]] [[-# RANGE] | [--hunks=RANGE]] [--lines=RANGE] [--files=RANGE] [[-H] | [--with-filename]] [[-h] | [--no-filename]] [[-v] | [--verbose]...] [file...] lsdiff {[--help] | [--version] | [--filter ...] | [--grep ...]}
DESCRIPTION
List the files modified by a patch. You can use both unified and context format diffs with this program.
OPTIONS
-n, --line-number Display the line number that each patch begins at. If verbose output is requested (using -nv), each hunk of each patch is listed as well. For each file that is modified, a line is generated containing the line number of the beginning of the patch, followed by a Tab character, followed by the name of the file that is modified. If -v is given once, following each of these lines will be one line for each hunk, consisting of a Tab character, the line number that the hunk begins at, another Tab character, the string "Hunk #", and the hunk number (starting at 1). If the -v is given twice in conjunction with -n (i.e. -nvv), the format is slightly different: hunk-level descriptive text is shown after each hunk number, and the --number-files option is enabled. --number-files File numbers are listed, beginning at 1, before each filename. -# RANGE, --hunks=RANGE Only list hunks within the specified RANGE. Hunks are numbered from 1, and the range is a comma-separated list of numbers or "first-last" spans; either the first or the last in the span may be omitted to indicate no limit in that direction. --lines=RANGE Only list hunks that contain lines from the original file that lie within the specified RANGE. Lines are numbered from 1, and the range is a comma-separated list of numbers or "first-last" spans; either the first or the last in the span may be omitted to indicate no limit in that direction. --files=RANGE Only list files indicated by the specified RANGE. Files are numbered from 1 in the order they appear in the patch input, and the range is a comma-separated list of numbers or "first-last" spans; either the first or the last in the span may be omitted to indicate no limit in that direction. -p n, --strip-match=n When matching, ignore the first n components of the pathname. --strip=n Remove the first n components of the pathname before displaying it. --addprefix=PREFIX Prefix the pathname with PREFIX before displaying it. -s, --status Show file additions, modifications and removals. A file addition is indicated by a "+", a removal by a "-", and a modification by a "!". -E, --empty-files-as-removed Treat empty files as absent for the purpose of displaying file additions, modifications and removals. -i PATTERN, --include=PATTERN Include only files matching PATTERN. -x PATTERN, --exclude=PATTERN Exclude files matching PATTERN. -z, --decompress Decompress files with extensions .gz and .bz2. -H, --with-filename Print the name of the patch file containing each patch. -h, --no-filename Suppress the name of the patch file containing each patch. -v, --verbose Verbose output. --help Display a short usage message. --version Display the version number of lsdiff. --filter Behave like filterdiff(1) instead. --grep Behave like grepdiff(1) instead.

EXAMPLES
To sort the order of touched files in a patch, you can use: lsdiff patch | sort -u | \ xargs -rn1 filterdiff patch -i To show only added files in a patch: lsdiff -s patch | grep '^+' | \ cut -c2- | xargs -rn1 filterdiff patch -i To show the headers of all file hunks: lsdiff -n patch | (while read n file do sed -ne "$n,$(($n+1))p" patch done)
