Hello,

The man page of git-diff-index:
http://git-scm.com/docs/git-diff-index
states that
`git-diff-index - Compares content and mode of blobs between the index
and repository`.

However, in fact this command compares between files on disk and
repository by default. It's explained clearly in here:
http://git-scm.com/docs/gitdiffcore

Maybe the man page could be updated to reflect this in NAME section:
`git-diff-index - Compares content and mode of blobs between files on
disk and repository or between the index and repository`

In DESCRIPTION section:
`Compares the content and mode of the blobs found via a tree object
with the content of the files on disk by default, and could be
compared with index only using cached option. ...`

Best Regards

Yours faithfully
