Diffs are created in two steps:

  1. Computing the difference of the files
  2. Creating the output of the difference

In Text_Diff, an Engine is used to compute the difference between the files/strings. The packages contains several of them: native, shell, string and xdiff. One should use auto to let Text_Diff decide which one is the best for the system.

The second part, creating the output, is made possible by renderers. Text_Diff comes with context , inline and unified renderers.
