uses a sub-optimal definition of a word

Bug Description

Binary package hint: wdiff

Quoth the man page:

     "A word is anything between whitespace."

This may be mostly true in natural english, but is often deeply untrue in other text files.
An ideal option would be to be able to specify on the command line, a series of characters to be considered as word delimiters.

Changed in wdiff (Ubuntu):
assignee: nobody → Ashish (kulkarniashish88)
