DwDiff is a front-end for the diff program that operates at the word level instead of the line level.

This software is distributed in two modes:
  • as compressed package that you have to download and manually install; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too;
  • as RPM package; you can install it using your favorite rpm package manager, that will take care to download and install both the software and its prerequisites.
Choose the installation mode that you prefer. Please note that not all the versions are available in both the installation modes.

Installation with rpm

This program is installable using the rpm package manager. See below for the install string. Required prerequisites are automatically processed by the package manager and, if needed, downloaded and installed.

DwDiff v. 2.0.4 (12/6/2012) Readme/What's new
Version 2.0.4: Bug fixes: - fix a memory allocation bug, which would be triggered by large values for the -m option. Version 2.0.3: Updated translations for German (incomplete), French (incomplete) and Spanish. Version 2.0.2: Bug fixes: - add support for DESTDIR in the Makefile install target. - fix build error on --without-unicode compiles. Version 2.0.1: Bug fixes: - escape parsing for unknown escapes (like for example \;) would result in incorrect strings. - when the space character is not considered whitespace, dwdiff will no longer use it to make changes more readable. Internal changes: - the token file no longer uses a newline character as separator, but a nul character, making reparsing easier and the whole of dwdiff more robust.

DwDiff v. 2.0 (23/10/2011, Elbert Pol (TeLLie)) Readme/What's new
Version 2.0: New features: - dwdiff is no longer a front-end for the diff program, but includes its own diff-algorithm implementation (taken from GNU diff). This makes dwdiff much faster, and ensures that results are the same across all platforms. Bug fixes: - when two additions are made with a single common token in between, dwdiff incorrectly reported the common token as replaced by the two additions and the common token. - when using the --diff-input option, in some cases dwdiff would report changes spanning multiple diff sections.
