[Subclipse-users] diff flags for "create patch"

I'm working with subclipse and the CDT, and I have a constant problem
with the "C" editor in that it will insert white space in files I change
(on a bunch of lines I haven't changed). For general Eclipse use this
isn't a big deal because there's an option in the compare editor to
ignore the white space. But we're using reviewboard to post submission
plans, which require me to generate a patch containing the diffs.
Conveniently svn diff allows the use of "-x -w" to ignore white space,
which works perfectly, but I can't find any way to inject this into the
Subclipse generated "diff" command.


This wouldn't be a major deal, but we deal with fairly large C files (a
few thousand lines), and when I make a 5 line change in one section it
turns into 50 diffs all over the place in the file and none of the
reviewers can make out what changes I actually made.


I'm figuring this must be a common problem, has anyone worked out a
solution for it yet?
