[bug-diffutils] bug#21023: REQUEST: --no-dereference missing from manpag

From: Christoph Anton Mitterer
Subject: [bug-diffutils] bug#21023: REQUEST: --no-dereference missing from manpage + please make a short option for it
Date: Fri, 10 Jul 2015 02:42:57 +0200


It seems that --no-dereference is not documented in the manpage.

Apart from that, --no-dereference seem to me like the more native way
for a recursive diff to work,... i.e. diffing the values of symlinks
and not (recursively) the stuff they point to.

Since no-dereference is so helpful, could you perhaps add a shortcut -R
that is recursive + no-dereference?

Unfortunately it's probably too late to change -r to behave like --no
-dereference (and instead add a --dereference and a -R).

Best wishes,
