Thank you, Panos. This item was particularly interesting: Add a new script library implementing unified diff generation and patch application: Expected in LiveCode 9.0 DP-7 <https://github.com/livecode/livecode/pull/5288> It wasn't immediately clear to me from the notes in that PR what that does, but the description sounds enticing. Can you offer a little background on that?
It's exactly what it says on the tin: a library that implements an algorithm for finding a minimal line-based edit script between two input texts, along with the ability to turn that into a unified diff.
Go have a look at the source code, which contains inline documentation: https://github.com/livecode/livecode/blob/develop/extensions/script-libraries/diff/diff.livecodescript You could also have a look at the tests: https://github.com/livecode/livecode/blob/develop/extensions/script-libraries/diff/test Its development was sponsored by David Simpson.
