The next patch will document gitk -L, but gitk does not understand the
separated form ('gitk -L :foo:bar' results in an error).  Spell
git-blame and git-log -L, which are supposed to be "the same" option,
without the spaces to prevent confusion.

 (they mean the same thing -- both ask for 21 lines starting at
 line 40):

-       git blame -L 40,+21 foo

+       git blame -L40,+21 foo
 Also you can use a regular expression to specify the line range:
-       git blame -L '/^sub hello {/,/^}$/' foo
+       git blame -L'/^sub hello {/,/^}$/' foo
 which limits the annotation to the body of the `hello` subroutine.
