Last year I wrote a gawk script that changes the output of git diff to 
prepend the line number for each line. I find it useful sometimes when I 
need to diff working tree, although it's not limited to that. Maybe it is 
useful to someone here?

$ git diff HEAD~1 |showlinenum.awk
diff --git a/doc.txt b/doc.txt
index fae6176..6ca8c26 100644
--- a/doc.txt
+++ b/doc.txt
