Project description

Inspired by


myers.diff(a, b, context=None, format=None)

(, 25-60)

Return the Myers diff of two lists.

The result is a list of (action, line) pairs, where action is one of KEEP, INSERT, REMOVE, or OMIT (which happen to be the characters k, i, r, and o).

a, b:

The two files to compare


How many lines of context to keep between blocks of changes? None, the default, means keep all unchanged lines. 0 means throw away all the unchanged lines.


If a dictionary, it is used to format each diff entry. If true, the default dictionary above is used to format the diff entries. Otherwise they are returned as-is.
