[Please, keep my address in CC, as I'm not subscribed to this list]

Hello,

I'm badly missing an "--include" option in "diff", which would have
the inverse effect of "--exclude", i.e., to consider only files whose
names _do_ match a certain pattern.

I've been searching the internet and also this mailing list, seeking a
way of doing this, but I've failed so far, and I'm quite surprised
that such a feature isn't implemented already.

What I want is a simple way of comparing two directories which have a
bunch of different file types, and I'm only interested on comparing a
subset of them.  Yes, I have the option of excluding every other
possible filetype, but that would be far more complex to do.

Are there a simple way of doing what I want?  If not, could you
implement that "--include" option?

Thanks in advance.

Ah, but why should we bloat diff when find already gives you what you wan=
t:

find . -name '*.txt' -exec diff {} other/{} \;

will run diff on only files ending in *.txt, when comparing . against
other/.

Ah yes, that's one possibility for doing what I want, but I'd
definitely prefer having the "--include" option, because:

1. Simplicity: It would be a lot simpler than the find/diff
combination.  And in the probable case that the "old" directory to
compare is not the current working directory, things get even more
complex, because the files in the "new" directory could not be
expressed in such a simple way ("whatever/{}").

2. Consistency: Why not having an "--include" option when we have an
"--exclude" option?

Another reason comes to my mind:

3.  Flexibility: Having the possibility of combining "--include" and

Another one:

4. Consistency (II): "grep" has exactly what I'm requesting for "diff":

      --include=FILE_PATTERN  search only files that match FILE_PATTERN
      --exclude=FILE_PATTERN  skip files and directories matching FILE_PATTERN

It'd be nice to have.  I implemented that feature for 'grep'
and would be a good candidate to do the same for 'diff'.
Unfortunately I've got a lot on my plate.  Maybe someone

a library so that other programs could use it too.
