The context output format starts with a two-line header, which looks like this:
*** from-file from-file-modification-time --- to-file to-file-modification time
The time stamp normally looks like `2002-02-21 23:30:39.942229878
-0800' to indicate the date, time with fractional seconds, and time
zone in Internet RFC
2822 format. However, a traditional time stamp like `Thu Feb 21
23:30:39 2002' is used if the
LC_TIME locale category is either
`C' or `POSIX'.
You can change the header's content with the `--label=label' option; see 2.3.4 Showing Alternate File Names.
Next come one or more hunks of differences; each hunk shows one area where the files differ. Context format hunks look like this:
*************** *** from-file-line-range **** from-file-line from-file-line... --- to-file-line-range ---- to-file-line to-file-line...
The lines of context around the lines that differ start with two space characters. The lines that differ between the two files start with one of the following indicator characters, followed by a space character:
If all of the changes in a hunk are insertions, the lines of from-file are omitted. If all of the changes are deletions, the lines of to-file are omitted.
