Dwdiff is a front-end for the diff program that operates at the word level instead of the line level.
It is different from wdiff in that it allows the user to specify what should be considered whitespace, and in that it takes an optional list of characters that should be considered delimiters. Delimiters are single characters that are treated as if they are words, even when there is no whitespace separating them from preceding words or delimiters.
Dwdiff is mostly commandline compatible with wdiff. Only the --autopager, --terminal and --avoid-wraps options are not supported.
The default output from dwdiff is the new text, with the deleted and inserted parts annotated with markers. Command line options are available to change both what is printed, and the markers.
dwdiff is licensed under the GNU General Public License version 3. See the file COPYING for details.
New in this version:
- It allows to improves the output of dwdiff so it is more intuitive
- A new option to mark deleted or inserted blocks of lines containing only whitespace (paragraph separators) has been added, as well as specification of background colors and custom colors
