I am looking to compare two text files. Normally, I can just use
diff to compare the two files to see the differences. This is great, except that I am more concerned with the percentage difference of the two files.
File A: banana TESTING File B: TESTING
In this case, the result would be a 50% difference. I've taken a look at
wdiff, and it mostly works, with the exception being that it looks at elements word-by-word (in fact, I can get the result above by doing
wdiff -s filea fileb).
Does a tool exist to provide file percentage difference on a by character/ by byte level?
