NAME



    VCP::DiffFormat - special diff format for VCP



CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



    diff $a, $b { STYLE => "VCP::DiffFormat" };



DESCRIPTION

This is a plugin output formatter for Text::Diff that generates unified style diffs without headers. VCP::Dest::revml uses this to output differences for several reasons:
o The Unix diff command is not available on all platforms by default, specifically WinNT.
o The two line file header is not needed in RevML, since the meta information is captured elsewhere in the <rev> element, and the name and mtime of the files being compared is irrellevant; they’re just some temporary files somewhere
o Because RevML offers MD5 hashes of the file to verify that a diff was applied properly, all of the - lines present in a normal unified diff are not necesssary. They are left in now for ease of debugging with RevML files, but may be stripped out to conserve space.
