I'd like to (ab)use git's nice diff interface and make this work:
git --no-pager diff --no-index <(echo foo) <(echo bar)
It just prints:
But I want:
$ diff -u0 <(echo foo) <(echo bar)|tail -n 2
I went diving through the diff code for a bit, but couldn't find where
it's stat()-ing the two files and deciding it's not going to follow
Just having some option to follow symlinks would make this work.
