NAME
       unwrapdiff - demangle word-wrapped patches

SYNOPSIS
       unwrapdiff [-v] [file...]

       unwrapdiff {[--help] | [--version]}

DESCRIPTION
       unwrapdiff demangles patches that have been word-wrapped, in an attempt
       to make them useful.

       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
       -v
	   Verbose operation. A	list of	lines that are modified	in a way that
	   might be wrong is sent to stderr.

       --help
	   Display a short usage message.

       --version
	   Display the version number of unwrapdiff.

LIMITATIONS
       Some heuristics are used	to decide whether use a	space to recombine a
       wrapped line, or	just join them together. Currently this	is done	by
       comparing with last three characters of a line with the first two
       characters of its continuation, and using a space if any	of them	are
       different.

       The patch needs to have been valid before being word-wrapped.

       The last	line of	a hunk is nearly always	ambiguous. If the next line
       begins "@@", "Index: ", "diff " or "--- " then it is taken to be
       complete; otherwise it is unwrapped using the next line.
