Use Algorithm::Diff to show the differences as color-coded HTML between two text sequences.
use Algorithm::Diff qw(traverse_sequences); my ($old, $new) = split /\n--\n/, join "", <DATA>; # get strings $_ = [split /\s+/, $_] for ($old, $new); # turn them into arrayrefs traverse_sequences($old, $new, { MATCH => sub { print "$old->[shift]\n"}, DISCARD_A => sub { print "<font color=red>$old->[shift]</font>\n"}, DISCARD_B => sub { print "<font color=green>$new->[shift,shift]</fon +t>\n"}, }); __END__ We start. Let's begin. This is the old text. Then we end. -- We start. This is the new text. And here's some stuff I added. Then w +e end.
which produces:
We start. <font color=red>Let's</font> <font color=red>begin.</font> This is the <font color=red>old</font> <font color=green>new</font> text. <font color=green>And</font> <font color=green>here's</font> <font color=green>some</font> <font color=green>stuff</font> <font color=green>I</font> <font color=green>added.</font> Then we end.
which results in:
We start. Let's begin. This is the old new text. And here's some stuff I added. Then we end.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
