Thanks for the challenge! :-) If you have notes about the stuff you've already investigated (apart from http://technogems.blogspot.com/2011/09/generate-side-by-side-diffs-in-html.html that I've already found in the README) then please do share. Else I'll try work from what I can guess based on current code. > Users of debbindiff don't need to know anything about vim. Vim is not > used as an editor at all. That is comforting - and was a third issue, apart from the ones mentioned further below: I suggest to mention that in long description, for those like me uncomfortable with the risk of getting "trapped" inside an editor with an arguable non-intuitive exit sequence. > I don't see why it would be problematic to depend on vim as an > external tool, and how it would differ from msgunfmt (gettext package) > which is needed to process .mo files. The issues I have are a) pulling in 28.8MB on my system, and b) introducing an editor that messes with system priorities among editors. I don't insist that you should feel my pain, jsut share with you what makes me hesitate to install the tool. - Jonas -- * Jonas Smedegaard - idealist & Internet-arkitekt * Tlf.: +45 40843136 Website: http://dr.jones.dk/ [x] quote me freely [ ] ask before reusing [ ] keep private
