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.
