From "man diff"

       diff [options] from-file to-file


       -u     Use the unified output format.

The command I use to generate a unified diff is:

diff -u from-file to-file

I'm guessing (as I'm no CVS or diff expert!) you'll have to do this for each file unless you somehow can have the from-file and to-file point to directories instead.

I hope this helps!

Since the OpenType font metrics wouldn't include the kerning I don't know if it would be useful for full FOP, but it should be sufficient to allow basic font metrics for CFF OpenType fonts.
Sounds good, i'm sure it will be useful for FOP even within kerning.


Could you created a unified diff for all the changed files, raise a bug in Bugzilla, attach the patch file and give the bug a title prefixed with [PATCH]? The FOP team are grateful for your efforts here.

I'm not sure what it means to create a unified diff--that's not something I've ever really done--I assume it's just a way of using CVS's diff utility to create a patch file. Can y'all point me in the right direction?
