Diff::LibXDiff is a binding of LibXDiff (http://www.xmailserver.org/xdiff-lib.html) to Perl via XS
LibXDiff is the basis of the diff engine for git
$diff = Diff::LibXDiff->diff( $string1, $string2 )
Calculate the textual diff of $string1 and $string2 and return the result as a string
$patched = Diff::LibXDiff->patch( $original, $patch )
( $patched, $rejected ) = Diff::LibXDiff->patch( $original, $patch )
Calculate the patched string given an original string and a patch string
If the patching algorithm cannot place a hunk, it will return a second "rejected" result (if called in list context)
$bdiff = Diff::LibXDiff->bdiff( $bin1, $bin2 )
Calculate the binary diff of $bin1 and $bin2 and return result as a string
$bpatched = Diff::LibXDiff->bpatch( $original, $patch )
Calculate the patched binary given an original string and a patch string
