NAME

Rex::Hook::File::Diff - show diff of changes for files managed by Rex

VERSION

version v0.2.0

SYNOPSIS

    use Rex::Hook::File::Diff;

DESCRIPTION

This module allows Rex to show a diff of changes for the files managed via its built-in file manipulation commands which rely on the file command as a backend:

file
delete_lines_matching
delete_lines_according_to
append_if_no_such_line
append_or_amend_line
sed

It uses the diff utility if available.

DIAGNOSTICS

This module does not do any error checking (yet).

CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT

This module does not require any configuration, nor does it use any environment variables.

DEPENDENCIES

See the included cpanfile.

Requires the diff utility to show the diff for remote file operations.

INCOMPATIBILITIES

There are no known incompatibilities with other modules.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS

There are no known bugs. Make sure they are reported.

Upload hook support is not implemented (yet), so diff is not shown upon file uploads when using the source option with the file command (or the upload command directly).
