Hi all,

I noticed that in the documentation, there is a subsection explaining diff 
formats, esp. context and unified diff. What is perhaps missing is a guide 
on how to produce them using the diff tool, ie. which options to give diff 
in order to produce the outputs.

Something along the lines of:

To produce a unified diff, use:
diff -u oldfile newfile
To produce a context diff, use:
diff -c oldfile newfile

It could be benificial to include a link to either gnu docs 
(http://www.gnu.org/software/hello/manual/diff/Context-Format.html#Context-Format
 
and http://www.gnu.org/software/hello/manual/diff/Unified-Format.html) or 
wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diff#Context_format and 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diff#Unified_format)

Should I open an enhancement item in the issue tracker for this?

Best regards,
Steen
