       grepdiff - show files modified by a diff containing a regex

       grepdiff [-n] [-p n] [--strip=n] [--addprefix=PREFIX] [-s] [-i PATTERN] [-x PATTERN] {REGEX} [file...]

       grepdiff {--help | --version | --list | --filter ...}

       For  each  file	modified by a patch, if the patch hunk contains the REGEX then the file's
       name is printed.

       The regular expression is treated as POSIX Basic Regular Expression syntax.

       For example, to	see  the  patches  in  my.patch  which	contain  the  regular  expression
       ``pf_gfp_mask'', use:

	      grepdiff pf_gfp_mask my.patch | \
		xargs -rn1 filterdiff my.patch -i

       You can use both unified and context format diffs with this program.

       -n     Display the line number that each patch begins at.

       -p n   When matching, ignore the first n components of the pathname.

	      Remove the first n components of the pathname before displaying it.

	      Prefix the pathname with PREFIX before displaying it.

       -s     Show  file additions, modifications and removals. A file addition is indicated by a
	      ``+'', a removal by a ``-'', and a modification by a ``!''.

       -i PATTERN
	      Include only files matching PATTERN.

       -x PATTERN
	      Exclude files matching PATTERN.

       --help Display a short usage message.

	      Display the version number of grepdiff.

	      Behave like filterdiff(1) instead.

       --list Behave like lsdiff(1) instead.

       filterdiff(1), lsdiff(1)
