./sysutils/py-diffoscope, In-depth comparison of files, archives, and directories

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 63, Package name: py35-diffoscope-63, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

diffoscope will try to get to the bottom of what makes files or
directories different. It will recursively unpack archives of many kinds
and transform various binary formats into more human readable form to
compare them. It can compare two tarballs, ISO images, or PDF just as
easily.

It can be scripted through error codes, and a report can be produced
with the detected differences. The report can be text or HTML.
When no type of report has been selected, diffoscope defaults
to write a text report on the standard output.

diffoscope will exit with 0 if there's no differences and 1 if there
are. An HTML report can be produced with the detected differences.

diffoscope is developed as part of the "reproducible builds" Debian
project.
It is meant to be able to quickly understand why two builds of the same
package produce different outputs. diffoscope was previously named
debbindiff.

Log message:
Update diffoscope to version 63

This adds a dependency on devel/colordiff.

Changelog for this version:

  * Greatly improve speed for large archives by fixing O(n^2) complexity for
    archive member lookup.
    - There is still O(n^2) complexity for archive member extraction, but this
      is less noticeable for various reasons and would require more complexity
      to fix, so for now is left as a task for the future.
  * Text output: add coloured diff support via colordiff(1).
  * Html-dir output: add +/- buttons to fold sub-diffs (i.e. toggle their
    visibility) as well as the whole diff itself. As with similar features in
    other programs, the effect affects all descendants if you shift-click.
