One thing I like a lot about 3.4+ is that you can now show color with the --color option in diff. Smile

Hello all.

An update of the always useful diffutils came out two days ago.
http://www.gnu.org/software/diffutils

Please find attached.

BFN.

Here is a synopsis of the components of this package, from the web site
mentioned above:

GNU Diffutils

GNU Diffutils is a package of several programs related to finding
differences between files.

Computer users often find occasion to ask how two files differ. Perhaps
one file is a newer version of the other file. Or maybe the two files started
out as identical copies but were changed by different people.

You can use the diff command to show differences between two files, or
each corresponding file in two directories. diff outputs differences
between files line by line in any of several formats, selectable by
command line options. This set of differences is often called a ‘diff’ or
‘patch’. For files that are identical, diff normally produces no output; for
binary (non-text) files, diff normally reports only that they are different.

You can use the cmp command to show the offsets and line numbers
where two files differ. cmp can also show all the characters that differ
between the two files, side by side.

You can use the diff3 command to show differences among three files.
When two people have made independent changes to a common original,
diff3 can report the differences between the original and the two changed
versions, and can produce a merged file that contains both persons'
changes together with warnings about conflicts.

You can use the sdiff command to merge two files interactively.
