       lsdiff [-n] [-p n] [--strip=n] [--addprefix=PREFIX] [-s]

       lsdiff {--help | --version | --filter ... | --grep ...}


       List the files modified by a patch.

       You can use both unified and  context  format  diffs  with
       this program.


       -n     Display  the line number that each patch begins at.
              If verbose output is requested, each hunk  of  each
              patch is listed as well.

              For each file that is modified, a line is generated
              containing the line number of the beginning of  the
              patch, followed by a Tab character, followed by the
              name of the file that is modified. If -v is  given,
              following  each of these lines will be one line for
              each hunk, consisting of a Tab character, the  line
              number that the hunk begins at, another Tab charac­
              ter, the string ``Hunk #'',  and  the  hunk  number
              (starting at 1).

       -p n   When matching, ignore the first n components of the

              Remove the first n components of the  pathname  be­
              fore displaying it.

              Prefix  the  pathname with PREFIX before displaying

       -s     Show file additions, modifications and removals.  A
              file addition is indicated by a ``+'', a removal by
              a ``-'', and a modification by a ``!''.

       -i PATTERN
              Include only files matching PATTERN.

              Behave like filterdiff(1) instead.

       --grep Behave like grepdiff(1) instead.


       filterdiff(1), grepdiff(1)


       To sort the order of touched files in  a  patch,  you  can

              lsdiff patch | sort -u | \
                xargs -rn1 filterdiff patch -i

       To show only added files in a patch:

              lsdiff -s patch | grep '^+' | \
                cut -c2- | xargs -rn1 filterdiff patch -i

       To show the headers of all file hunks:

              lsdiff -n patch | (while read n file
                do sed -ne "$n,$(($n+1))p" patch
