Subject: Bug#734840: diff -R (aka diff --reverse)?

Package: diffutils
Version: 1:3.3-1
Severity: wishlist

It would be nice to have an option "diff --reverse"
to swap left and right side, similar to the patch
utility. Esp. when using command line editing it could
help to reuse a previous command line arguments without
swapping the objects manually.

Seems that both --reverse and -R are not defined for
other functions yet.


Regards
Harri
