Description Zsolt Udvari 2018-02-08 16:10:59 UTC
I noticed that diff truncates the "function name" if using -F (--show-function-line) option. I think this problem is similar to this stackoverflow question: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/11232461/unix-diff-show-function-line-truncates-output
Are any reason to truncate or can enlarge it (or maybe user-definied with an option)?
