class Diff

This class is an implementation of the classic UNIX diff functionality. It's based on an original implementation by Lars Christensen, which based his version on the Perl Algorithm::Diff implementation. This is largely a from-scratch implementation that tries to have a less intrusive and more user-friendly interface. But some code fragments are very similar to the original and are copyright (C) 2001 Lars Christensen.

Public Class Methods

Modify the values list according to the stored diff information.

# File lib/taskjuggler/AlgorithmDiff.rb, line 101
def patch(values)
  res = values.dup
  @hunks.each do |hunk|
    if hunk.delete?
      res.slice!(hunk.bIdx, hunk.deleteValues.length)
    end
    if hunk.insert?
      res.insert(hunk.bIdx, *hunk.insertValues)
    end
  end
  res
end
to_s() click to toggle source

Return the diff list as standard UNIX diff output.

# File lib/taskjuggler/AlgorithmDiff.rb, line 129
def to_s
  str = ''
  @hunks.each { |hunk| str << hunk.to_s }
  str
end
