Updated - version 1.0.18 released on Friday 2 June 2017
The Perl script colordiff is a wrapper for 'diff' and produces the same output but with pretty 'syntax' highlighting. Colour schemes can be customized.
To see how colordiff works, you can
- Latest version: colordiff-1.0.18.tar.gz
- PGP signature for latest version: colordiff-1.0.18.tar.gz.sig
Old versions are available for reference from the archive for testing and bug tracking, but are not recommended for general use: run the latest version.
Availability of colordiff with your Linux/BSD distribution
- Those running Debian or Ubuntu (or any of their derivatives) can probably just use "apt-get install colordiff" to download and install;
- colordiff is also packaged for a number of other Linux, UNIX and BSD distributions and operating systems.
Digitally-signed source code
PGP key used to sign the colordiff source is available from here. The signing key was changed in January 2013; releases up to 1.0.13 were signed by an older key.
