What is the equivalent command line option with diff to ignore changes

0 Likes

PROBLEM/ABSTRACT:
In the AccuRev GUI, one of the diff options you can specify is "ignore changes in whitespace". What is the equivalent option that can be specified from the command line?


SOLUTION:
The option you will use with diff is -W. This option will ignore changes in the amount of whitespace in the file comparison. But report on newly created whitespace and on whitespace that has been completely removed. For example, the option -w doesn't see the difference between compareme and compare me, but -W does.
