Sort of. It's a completely different form, but when --no-index is left out the syntax is a special case of "git diff -- <path>...". Maybe it would make sense to move towards eliminating the "implicit --no-index for paths outside the repository" trick. I use "git diff --no-index" all the time, but I always spell it out to be careful. -- 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
