diffh: Make your diff easier to see

This one is similar to dailystrips, in that it generates an HTML page as its main output. But this time, it’s working in tandem with diff, to make things a little easier on the eyes.

Definitely a picture is worth a thousand words here.


Not that there’s a lot to point out there, but with the -u flag in diff, piped through diffh, you can come up with a visually clear representation of what diff is trying to tell you.

I’m not a programmer so maybe there are better, more obvious ways to show diff visually, but I can see where a couple of large files would be easier to understand this way.

And that’s all I can think of to say. 😐
