NAME
       unwrapdiff - demangle word-wrapped patches

SYNOPSIS
       unwrapdiff [-v] [file...]

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

DESCRIPTION
       unwrapdiff demangles patches that have been word-wrapped, in an attempt to make them
       useful.

       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
       -v
	   Verbose operation. A list of lines that are modified in a way that might be wrong is
	   sent to stderr.

       --help
	   Display a short usage message.

       --version
	   Display the version number of unwrapdiff.

LIMITATIONS
       Some heuristics are used to decide whether use a space to recombine a wrapped line, or
       just join them together. Currently this is done by comparing with last three characters of
       a line with the first two characters of its continuation, and using a space if any of them
       are different.

       The patch needs to have been valid before being word-wrapped.

       The last line of a hunk is nearly always ambiguous. If the next line begins "@@",
       "Index: ", "diff " or "--- " then it is taken to be complete; otherwise it is unwrapped
       using the next line.
