       rediff, editdiff - fix offsets and counts of a hand-edited diff

       rediff ORIGINAL EDITED

       rediff EDITED

       rediff {--help | --version}

       editdiff FILE

       editdiff {--help | --version}

       You can use rediff to correct a hand-edited unified diff. Take a copy of the diff you want
       to edit, and edit it without changing any offsets or counts (the lines that begin ``@@'').
       Then run rediff, telling it the name of the original diff file and the name of the one you
       have edited, and it will output the edited  diff  file  but  with  corrected  offsets  and

       A small script, editdiff, is provided for editing a diff file in-place.

       The types of changes that are currently handled are:

       o  Modifying the text of any file content line (of course).

       o  Adding new line insertions or deletions.

       o  Adding, changing or removing context lines. Lines at the context horizon are dealt with
	  by adjusting the offset and/or count.

       o  Adding a single hunk (@@-prefixed section).

       o  Removing multiple hunk (@@-prefixed sections).

       Alternatively, if only one argument is provided, it is taken to be the edited file and the
       counts  and  offsets  are  adjusted as appropriate. Some assumptions are made when used in
       this mode. See recountdiff(1) for more information.

       --help Display a short usage message.

	      Display the version number of rediff.
