I am using git with --color-words to view my diff. In my diff, it shows that I removed
git help diff:
--word-diff-regex=<regex> Use <regex> to decide what a word is, instead of considering runs of non-whitespace to be a word. Also implies --word-diff unless it was already enabled.
The following expression will make a word be any string of characters and underscore, or any non-whitespace character.
$ git diff --color-words --word-diff-regex='\\w+|[^[:space:]]'
