NAME

dehtmldiff - get usable diff from an HTML page

SYNOPSIS

dehtmldiff [ file...]
dehtmldiff {[--help] | [--version]}

DESCRIPTION

dehtmldiff creates usable diff files from HTML pages. This is useful in the scenario where a patch has been posted to a mailing list viewable via a web page.
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

--help
Display a short usage message.
--version
Display the version number of dehtmldiff.

LIMITATIONS

The way this command works is fairly primitive; it boils down to some simple text replacements, followed by an unwrapdiff pass. As a result, all of the limitations that apply to unwrapdiff also apply to dehtmldiff.
