Subject: [PATCH v2 4/8] doc: add more pointers to gitattributes(5) for userdiff
Date: Sun, 01 Nov 2020 17:28:43 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <9443a681e3c26410d0c262ac52fc604b39a89421.1604251728.git.gitgitgadget@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <pull.774.v2.git.1604251727.gitgitgadget@gmail.com>

From: Philippe Blain <levraiphilippeblain@gmail.com>

Several Git commands can make use of the builtin userdiff patterns, but
it's not obvious in the documentation. Add pointers to the 'Defining a
custom hunk header' part of gitattributes(5) in the description of the
following options:

- the '--function-context' option of `git diff` and friends
- the '--function-context' option of `git grep`
- the '-L :<funcname>' option of `git log`, `gitk` and `git blame`

In 'git-grep.txt', take the opportunity to use backticks in the
description of '--show-function', and improve the wording of the
desription of '--function-context'.
