Has anyone had to put a differencing engine into their apps? That's what I'm faced with. Part of the app records a history of small snippets of text (3k or so on average) that are held in a database. I need to be able to visually compare the text.
Something like WinDiff, VisualDiff, or the GNU diff engine or whatever, but I want to incorporate the engine into a Delphi app (or talk to a COM obj would be fine) so that I can present the results in my own format.
Anyone know of such a library?
