Subject: name for A..B ranges?
Date: Wed, 22 Jun 2016 08:25:59 +0100
Message-ID: <0648000B273C412AB7140AE959EBC99A@PhilipOakley> (raw)

Hi,

Is there a common name for the A..B range format (two dots) that would 
complement the A...B (three dots) symmetric range format's name?

I was looking at the --left-right distinctions and noticed that the trail 
back to the symmetric range description was rather thin (it's buried within 
gitrevisions:Specifying Ranges, and even then its called a symmetric 
difference.

Philip
