The same logic would apply to this semi-nonsense rewrite, no? git diff [[options] [--]] [<path>...] Everything else comes before "--" (if exists) that separates it from the list of pathspecs. -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
