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.
