Search delta files by date. In most software development
stage, modifications to source codes usually possess temporal locality,
i.e. changes to a number of files made at about the same time.
This feature might be useful in finding out this group of files, because
usually changes made in this group are somewhat interrelated.
The date specification must follow one of the following formats:
- Year only, such as in 2000 to search for all delta files
created in year 2000, or
- Year and month, such as in 2000/9 to search for all delta
files created in September 2000,
- A complete year, month, and date, such as in 2000/9/17 to
search for all delta files created on that particular date.
The search results can be selected and compared to its base file.
