DIFF_OPTIONS handling in diff(1)

the patch | Debian packages

The prepend-diff-options patch

Here's a little patch to GNU diffutils, obtained from the FreeBSD source tree, which makes life easier by honoring the DIFF_OPTIONS environment variable, placing its contents before any options specified on the diff(1) command line. For more information, see revision 650 in my Subversion repository.

A Debian package

Here's a Debian package of diffutils-2.8.1-11.1, which is actually diffutils-2.8.1-11 with the DIFF_OPTIONS patch applied. For more information, see revisions 651 to 657 in my Subversion repository.
