NAME

splitdiff - separate out incremental patches  

SYNOPSIS

splitdiff [-a] [-d] [-p n] [file]
splitdiff {[--help] [--version]}
 

DESCRIPTION

If you have a patch file composed of several incremental patches, you can use splitdiff to separate them out. You may want to do this in preparation for re-combining them with combinediff(1).

The effect of running splitdiff is to separate its input into a set of output files, with no output file patching the same file more than once.  

OPTIONS

-a
Split out every single file-level patch.
-d
Create file names such as a_b.c for a patch that modifies a/b.c.
-p n
Strip the first n components of the pathname to aid comparisons.
--help
Display a short usage message.
--version
Display the version number of splitdiff.
