I saw it, its a nice xargs trick, I never thought about sorting find output,
I was trying find -exec solutions, this is really nice :-)

I would need to find every file that, exist on one tree and not on
another. This mean getting a list of files on two trees and comparing, what is complex,
error prone and slower.

It's a bit messy to work around with find:

  find a/ b/ -type f -printf "%P\0" | sort -zu | xargs -0 -n1 -i% diff
-Nu a/% b/%

Daniel's proposed feature makes this easier and more efficient (as diff won't
be invoked for each file), so it looks good to me.

Thanks,
Andreas

This feels like feature bloat.  What's wrong with using 'find' to locate
the subset of files you are interested in, then running diff on those fil=
es?

I run to this problem some time ago. I need to parse to trees, but
only the source files (*.[hcS]). I see some find solutions, but that
don't work for me since I have new files created on modified
tree. Best solution would be patch diff. So here I am.

This patches add a new option (--only=REGEX) that parse only files
that match such regexp. Multiple regexps can be used and they will be
OR'ed. Also, --exclude is processed before --only, so will can still
exclude files before they match REGEX.

This commit don't update man pages and info docs, I looking for it.

Cheers,
>8---------------------8<
* src/diff.h: XTERN only_regexp added.
* src/diff.c: global only_regexp_list, and ONLY_OPTION added.
              "only-that-matches" element added to longopts.
              Help string added to global option_help_msgid array.
* src/diff.c: (main) only_regexp_list.buf initalized.
              ONLY_OPITON processed on options loop
* src/dir.c:  (dir_read) Added an `if' to process --only option. Was
              added after --exclude processing. This way user can
              exclude files that still match --only REGEX.
