RECOUNTDIFF(1)                                                  RECOUNTDIFF(1)




NAME

       recountdiff - recompute patch counts and offsets


SYNOPSIS

       recountdiff [file...]

       recountdiff {--help | --version}



DESCRIPTION

       recountdiff recomputes the counts and offsets in unified context diffs.
       It does this in two passes: first the counts are corrected  by  inspec-
       tion  of  the actual patch lines, and then the offsets are adjusted ac-
       cording to the computed counts.


       The corrected diff is sent to standard output.



OPTIONS

       --help Display a short usage message.


       --version
              Display the version number of recountdiff.



LIMITATIONS

       There are some things that cannot be dealt with. If  you  have  removed
       the  first context line in a hunk, for example, there is no way for re-
       countdiff to know that. For more  precise  fixing  up,  use  rediff(1),
       which uses the original and modified diffs.
