Subject: [git-users] Git extensions to use enhanced difference detection
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
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.
There is a config variable, and there are details in the .gitattibutes man
page, for deciding which diff function is to be used.
an external diff driver.
