Subject: can someone verify operation of "splitpatch" with a massive "git diff"?
Date: Mon, 16 Nov 2020 04:18:24 -0500 (EST)	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <fc5cf6bc-aa74-d8-90b-c1789f349b8c@crashcourse.ca> (raw)


  someone just handed me a several thousand line layer-wide patch, and
i'd like to pull it apart into bite-sized pieces, and i just noticed
the utility "splitpatch", but when i applied it to the patch, what i
got was *almost* right ... except that the patch snippets had the
trailing "git diff" line from the *following* patch snippet in the
file; the splitting operation clearly retained the trailing line after
the patch, rather than the leading line that actually represented the
snippet.

  is there a simple way to do this? i do have the right to go back to
the patch creator and ask him to redo the diff in a different way.
thoughts?
