First I am sorry writing folders instead of files. as far as I see diff command compares differences line by line between 2 files That's to say, File a orange blue yellow File b yellow blue orange diff --suppress-common-lines -w -y a b orange < blue < > blue > orange as above you see, A and B files contains the same strings but their's lines are different I wish diff or another command not to display same values which are in different lines. > First of all I suppose you're talking about 2 files, not folders. > In which case the command you're using isn't looking so bad since it > shows the differences between file "a" and file "b": > > > diff --suppress-common-lines -w -y a b > abcde | xyasz > > But since you do not seem to be happy with the output - what should it > look like? > > Armin > > On Tue 05 May 2009, Yavuz Maşlak wrote: > >> I have two folders which contains some expressions in everyline as >> following; >> File A: >> abcde >> 12345 >> etc. >> >> File B: >> xyzas >> 12345 >> etc >> >> As above some strings are same and some strings are different. >> There are several differents between these two files. >> >> When I run diff command "diff --suppress-common-lines -y -w file1 file2 > >> fileresult" like I couldn't result right. >> How can I extract differences between 2 folders ? >> >> Which command do I need to use ? > > -- > Armin Pirkovitsch > a.pi...@inode.at > _______________________________________________ > firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to > "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org" _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org" <font size="1"> <div style='border:none;border-bottom:double windowtext 2.25pt;padding:0in 0in 1.0pt 0in'> </div> "This email is intended to be reviewed by only the intended recipient and may contain information that is privileged and/or confidential.
