I have found the 'ediff' code-merging tools within Emacs useful for situations that are kind of like yours. There is an 'ediff-buffers' command that splits the screen highlighting the detected differences between the code in two edit buffers, and allows you to step through the list of differences. Single keystrokes 'a','b' will put what is in buffer A into the corresponding difference in buffer B, and vice versa. There are many other things you can do in this mode as well. Emacs also provides 'ediff-buffers3' which does 3 files at once, and 'ediff-directories' which sets up a 'session' going through all the files in a pair of directories. I might feel inclined to load up scripts A and B, copy one of them to a new file AB, and manually construct AB to be an abstracted union of the two. You could then do the same with script C, then D...

Hey!! Wait! This isn't my signature!!

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.
