Let me forward this enhancement proposal:

ediff is great, (is one of my favorite tools) but is insufficient if
you have more differences in the same line, or differences in several
consecutive lines (and you have to choose differently for each of
them); it is clearly tuned for different versions of code, not on OCR
output. Initially I considered modifying ediff, but the code is too
complex, I hope to have something usable with much less effort.

This basically means a diff is required that compares line by line and
that allows to say "next word" from version A or "rest of line" from
version B is wanted.

Here is Carlo's prototyp in Lisp:


address@hidden (work) / address@hidden (home):              |
