Please allow tkdiff to generate output in format similar to GNU diff -U. Since tkdiff already compute the similarities in a line and mark it differently in the GUI, can "color" coding be used for text as well. Using ANSI color coding to highlight or underline the differences will be more valuable.

Finally, in the case of difference in "numbers", can tkdiff also display the "delta" in absolute and percentage. So, for example :

The lines :

"Temperature of 98.6F"
and
"Temperature of 97.2F"

can display :

Temperature of 98.6F and 36.5F
-1.4 2.5
-1.4% 6.85%
Temperature of 97.2F and 39.0F

in the tkdiff report.
