FEATURE REQUEST: Unified Diff -->request switches for exclusion of white space from diff

From: Peter Willis <pwillis_at_aslenv.com>

Hello,

QUESTION/REQUEST:

Is there any way the unified diff could add some switches to adjust the
diff output?

DETAILS:

The switches I am most interested in are:

--ignore-case
--ignore-file-name-case
--ignore-space-change
--strip-trailing-cr
--text
--ignore-blank-lines

These switches are from GNU diff. 'man diff' for explanations
of the switches. I really don't know what diff tool you are using
in your code base.

REASONS:

Allowing these to be switched on and off (check boxes?) while
diffing files and directories would be exceptionally useful
where code has just been indented but not changed.

Also if additional blank lines have been added to files,
in some cases this does not affect the function of the code.

NOTES:

Selectable switches would be good. Perhaps GUI check boxes
on the unified diff window, or simply add selectable diff
options to the global settings for diff under TortoiseSVN->Settings.

!!Thanks for reading about to my dreams.!!
