diffutils 3.8

Comparing and merging files

GNU Diffutils is a package containing tools for finding the differences between files. The "diff" command is used to show how two files differ, while "cmp" shows the offsets and line numbers where they differ. "diff3" allows you to compare three files. Finally, "sdiff" offers an interactive means to merge two files.


Install diffutils 3.8 as follows:

guix install diffutils@3.8

Or install the latest version:

guix install diffutils

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
