DESCRIPTION
       cut-diff	 is  a diff command that uses diff feature in Cutter. It shows
       difference with color.

       -c [yes|true|no|false|auto], --color=[yes|true|no|false|auto]
	      If  'yes'	or 'true' is specified,	cut-diff uses colorized	output
	      by escape	sequence. If 'no' or 'false'  is  specified,  cut-diff
	      never  use colorized output. If 'auto' or	the option is omitted,
	      cut-diff uses colorized output if	available.

	      The default is auto.

	      cut-diff uses unified diff format.

       --context-lines=LINES
	      Shows diff context around	LINES.

	      All lines	are shown by default.  When  unified  diff  format  is
	      used, 3 lines are	shown by default.

       --label=LABEL, -L=LABEL

	      used as file1's label and	the second  --label  option  value  is
	      used asfile2's label.

	      Labels are the same as file names	by default.
