I have 2 revisions of a file at HEAD and HEAD^. I want to manually
compose new version of the file out of these two ones. I try to get
the whole content of the file with diffs `git diff -U9999 HEAD^..HEAD
-- myfile`. With `-U9999` I try to lift the limits of the context. But
I'd like to escape from context diffs at all if it's possible. Ideally
I'd like to have my file with just initial space/plus/minus notation.
What is the best way to do that? Or maybe it is possible to look at
the problem with a different angle.
