I can’t get it to show me anything like that, even on output on
which it ostensibly should. All it shows me is the same output as
the regular diff (except also colourised with background colours):
if a portion of a line has changed, it just shows the before and
after lines, rather than a single line with a colourised portion.

What could be the culprit? What input does it expect? How picky
is it about that?
