Qdiff updated

Item posted by Tong Sun <xpt> on Tue 21 Oct 2008 08:10:24 PM UTC.

qdiff is a fast binary files differ that can detect binary
insertions/deletions/substitutions with colorful outputs, written
by Johannes Overmann. qdiff is the only fast and versatile binary
files differ that's available in the FOSS would, others don't come
close to it. However, the latest version,

http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/utils/file/qdiff-0.8.2.tar.gz

is more than 8 years old. It does not compile under the current
g++ any more. Moreover, even after I managed to get it compile
fine, it causes "segmentation fault" when executed.

Now it works and has a new home:

http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/qdiff

Check out http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/qdiff/ for more.
The updated version is 0.9.1, which is available at
http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/qdiff/qdiff-0.9.1/

It now uses autoconf + automake instead of a fixed
Makefile. Please give it a try, and let me know the result.
