I'm newish to Git and see that it seems to do change detection using a line
by line kind of algorithm.
Is there any way to get Git to be more intelligent, for example when
comparing a source file to some earlier version don't just use the
line-by-line compare but instead use a compare that is syntax aware for the
kind of file that's changed?
If two files that look different actually have identical syntax trees then
it would be great to have Git not perceive them as different.
So just wondering if the system has hooks or if any Git hosting sites offer
this kind of thing.
