UNWRAPDIFF(1)									    UNWRAPDIFF(1)

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 use-
       ful.

       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 of 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.
