It's better to ask questions in comp.lang.perl. misc not comp.lang.perl.

`diff` is in http://www.perl.com/language/ppt/what.html

I've got a diff file that I think is a patch for a bunch of file in a directory. How do I apply this file? I thought it was #patch myfile.diff But that does nothing. I must be missing something. The diff file contains diff's for a nuch of files, not just a single file. Do I need a

Hi- I have a lot of monthly time series data. I need to be able to compare two dates and get the number of months that they are apart. The datetime module is a daily-frequency data type. It has a timedelta object that returns the difference in days between two dates: >>> d1 = datetime.date(2002,1,1)

After using ndiff from difflib, the function restore would return the sequence that generated the delta. Unfortunately, restore does not do the same for unified_diff. I do not see any similar function that is intended for unified_diff. Does anyone know how to "restore" from a unified diff generated delta? Thanks for all your help in advance. Best Regards, Nick

Hi all, I try to create a tool to check the delta (diff) of 2 binaries and create the delta binary. I use binary formatter (serialization) to create the delta binary. It works fine but the delta binary is pretty huge in size. I have 1 byte file and 2 bytes file, the delta should be 1 byte but somehow it turns out to be 249 bytes using binary formatter. I guess serialization has some other things added to the delta file.

Hi! Suppose I have "pg_dump -s" of two pg installs, one is "dev", another is "production". Their schemas don't differ too much, and I want to get a "diff -u"-like schema diff so I can quickly add missing/remove old tables/sequences/etc to one or another (manually). Is there some quick tool for doing this ? There was a thread about it sometime in aug, 2002, but it ended without producing anything useful.

Hola! I'm preparing my master thesis about a XML Merge Tool implementation and was wondering if there is any open standard for XML diff regarding topics like: - is a diff result computed on the ordered or unordered xml node tree of the compared documents? - what identifiers/criteria should be used by default to match elements of the same type in different documents? - should a diff tool consider move operations or only insert/delete

Hello, I'm looking for an implementation for diffing 2 (text) files and spitting out the output using php only. i would like to extend this to use ftp to diff two files on two ftp servers, or one local file & a remote ftp server. Anyone have any ideas on source for this before i go ahead and build it? At least the diff engine? a nice gui would be best, but not totally necessary. TIA,

Hi, We're reformatting a lot of our project code using the excellent uncrustify beautifier. However, to gain confidence that it really is only changing whitespace (forget { } issues for just now), we were hoping to do a diff - a textual comparison of the files, ignoring whitespace. However, most diffs we've tried can't handle multi-line whitespace, so

Hi, I am working on an HTML WYSISYG Wiki and need to display a diff page like WikiPedia does if two people edit a file at the same time to give the second user the diff. Basically with additions in red and deletions in red strike though. There seem to be several in Perl and Python and many diff programs which all seem to be line based and work on text written in PHP.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
