I am using emacs with ediff to compare two files. and my ediff view does not show inline differences. e.g., if lines from both files only have one word difference, ediff cannot highlight the word but rather the whole line, I'v enclosed the screenshot below to show that.
I have auto-refining on, I tried press
* to force refining, but non worked.
If I press
= to compare the region, then, the word difference is show as below, but then how can I go back to the full file comparing view? it says
= toggles region, but when I press
= again, it does not bring me back to the full file view but rather asking me select region for file A and B for comparison again...
magitsupports this. I'm guessing its diffing capability is useable without git, but I don't have specifics.
