diffdiffer

Diff/patch file highlighter. diff or patch file shows difference in
files in whole lines. Sometimes those lines are very similar, only one
or two words changed. This script compares changed lines by characters
and highlights actual differences in them. It's very helpful in seeing
what actually changed in those long lines :)
