    diff-highlight: split code into module · 0c977dbc
    Jeff King authored
    The diff-so-fancy project is also written in perl, and most
    of its users pipe diffs through both diff-highlight and
    diff-so-fancy. It would be nice if this could be done in a
    single script. So let's pull most of diff-highlight's code
    into its own module which can be used by diff-so-fancy.
    
    In addition, we'll abstract a few basic items like reading
    from stdio so that a script using the module can do more
    processing before or after diff-highlight handles the lines.
    See the README update for more details.
    
    One small downside is that the diff-highlight script must
    now be built using the Makefile. There are ways around this,
    but it quickly gets into perl arcana. Let's go with the
    simple solution. As a bonus, our Makefile now respects the
    PERL_PATH variable if it is set.
