DEHTMLDIFF(1)                                                    DEHTMLDIFF(1)



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 prob-
       ably need to use the -l option when applying the patch, in order to ig-
       nore 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 dehtmld-
       iff.
