  • Added --head option to icdiff

    August 2nd, 2010
    icdiff, programming  [html]
    Often when diffing two files I know there are going to be a lot of differences, and I just want some examples. Instead of waiting for icdiff to run on a whole file, I used to run something like:
    $ icdiff
    This works fine, but is annyoying to type. To fix this, I added a --head option to icdiff:
    $ icdiff --head 20 a.txt b.txt
    Get it on github: icdiff
