       splitdiff - separate out incremental patches

       splitdiff [-a] [-d] [-p n] [file]

       splitdiff {[--help] | [--version]}

       If you have a patch file composed of several incremental patches, you can use splitdiff to separate them out.
       You may want to do this in preparation for re-combining them with combinediff(1).

       The effect of running splitdiff is to separate its input into a set of output files, with no output file
       patching the same file more than once.

           Split out every single file-level patch.

           Create file names such as a_b.c for a patch that modifies a/b.c.

       -p n
           Strip the first n components of the pathname to aid comparisons.

           Display a short usage message.

           Display the version number of splitdiff.
