Description acount closed by user 2010-02-18 15:31:49 UTC
* Noteworthy changes in release 2.9 (2010-02-11) [stable] ** New features New diff option --suppress-blank-empty. Bring back support for `diff -NUM', where NUM is a number, even when conforming to POSIX 1003.1-2001. This change reverts to the behavior of GNU diff 2.7 and earlier. This is a change only when conforming to POSIX 1003.1-2001; there is no effect when conforming to older POSIX versions. This change is in response to decisions taken in the January 2005 Austin Group standardization meeting. For more details, please see "Utility Syntax Guidelines" in the Minutes of the January 2005 Meeting <http://www.opengroup.org/austin/docs/austin_239.html>. sdiff now understands '1' and '2' as synonyms for 'l' and 'r'. ** Changes in behavior sdiff and diff3 now invoke diff, not $(bindir)/diff ** Administrivia New discussion and bug-reporting address: email@example.com updated gnulib support
Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2010-02-18 16:39:30 UTC
The i18n patch needs re-basing to 2.9.

Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2010-03-16 12:33:50 UTC
I haven't forgotten about this, but I've been busy with higher priority bugs (vs this feature request). Re-basing the i18n patch is not trivial.

I am not hurry, but 2.8.1 is _eight_ years old! Recently Jim Meyering <firstname.lastname@example.org> has done a lots of commits in the diffutils source code, I guess he can help you with the i18n patch. -thanks-

* Noteworthy changes in release 3.0 (2010-05-03) [stable] ** Bug fixes diff once again prints the required "\ No newline at end of file" line when at least one input lacks a newline-at-EOF and the final hunk plus context-length aligns exactly with the end of the newline-lacking file. [bug introduced between 2.8.7 and 2.9] ** Changes in behavior In context-style diffs, diff prints a portion of a preceding "function" line for each hunk, with --show-function-line=RE (-F) or --show-c-function (-p). Now, it trims leading blanks from such lines before extracting a prefix. This is useful especially when a function line is so far indented that the name itself would be truncated or not included in the limited-width substring that diff appends. diff once again reports a difference with the diagnostic "Binary files A and B differ" when at least one of the files appears to be binary. From 2.8.4 through diffutils-2.9, it printed "Files A and B differ".

Closed. I'm sorry, I'm going to delete my bz count.
Comment 15 Jim Meyering 2010-06-27 06:28:39 UTC
Thanks, but that's no reason to close this bug. Reopened.
Comment 16 Account closed by user 2011-02-22 19:32:30 UTC
This looks dead.
Comment 17 Tim Waugh 2011-02-23 17:08:14 UTC
Not dead, just lower priority than other things at the moment. I will get to it.
Comment 18 Account closed by user 2011-02-23 17:19:03 UTC
lower lower lower ;-) 2.8.1 is nine years old, and this bug was opened one year ago.
Comment 19 Tim Waugh 2011-04-13 10:56:36 UTC
I've dropped the i18n patch altogether. If someone wants to look at adding it back in, please go ahead.
