Overview

    Package diff implements line oriented diffs, similar to the ancient Unix diff command.

    The current implementation is just a wrapper around Sergi's go-diff/diffmatchpatch library, which is a go port of Neil Fraser's google-diff-match-patch code

    Functions

    func Do

    func Do(src, dst string) (diffs []diffmatchpatch.Diff)

      Do computes the (line oriented) modifications needed to turn the src string into the dst string. The underlying algorithm is Meyers, its complexity is O(N*d) where N is min(lines(src), lines(dst)) and d is the size of the diff.

      func DoWithTimeout

      func DoWithTimeout(src, dst string, timeout time.Duration) (diffs []diffmatchpatch.Diff)

        DoWithTimeout computes the (line oriented) modifications needed to turn the src string into the dst string. The `timeout` argument specifies the maximum amount of time it is allowed to spend in this function. If the timeout is exceeded, the parts of the strings which were not considered are turned into a bulk delete+insert and the half-baked suboptimal result is returned at once. The underlying algorithm is Meyers, its complexity is O(N*d) where N is min(lines(src), lines(dst)) and d is the size of the diff.

        func Dst

        func Dst(diffs []diffmatchpatch.Diff) string

          Dst computes and returns the destination text.

          func Src

          func Src(diffs []diffmatchpatch.Diff) string

            Src computes and returns the source text
