are you sure? diff does a really poor job of that. something like
Exuberant ctags can do a much better job, for far more languages. why
not pipe the output of diff/grep into a script that adds the annotations?
I tend to agree. It's undeniably useful to some people to have such a feature
available at the touch of a single option letter, but implementing and
supporting such a feature which doesn't actually work very well overall is
quite a high cost.
i have such a script for annotating patches, if anyone's interested.
Yes please. I currently use "diff -p" for generating patches, and then have a
script to extract a list of the functions touched to make a log message
template. It gets it wrong quite often, so I have to edit the result by hand.
I'd like to use your better solution.
