Subject: [PATCH v2 1/8] doc: log, gitk: move '-L' description to 'line-range-options.txt'
Date: Sun, 01 Nov 2020 17:28:40 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <b4fa5fb5ae5cb1d23bde1481a73b088826aa3f44.1604251728.git.gitgitgadget@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <pull.774.v2.git.1604251727.gitgitgadget@gmail.com>

From: Philippe Blain <levraiphilippeblain@gmail.com>

The description of the '-L' option for `git log` and `gitk` is almost
the same, but is repeated in both 'git-log.txt' and 'gitk.txt' (the
difference being that 'git-log.txt' lists the option with a space
after '-L', while 'gitk.txt' lists it as stuck and notes that `gitk`
only understands the stuck form).

Reduce duplication by creating a new file, 'line-range-options.txt',
and include it in both files.

To simplify the presentation, only list the stuck form for both
commands, and remove the note about `gitk` only understanding the stuck
form.
