[REBOL] Challenging script idea Re:
From: sterling:rebol at: 29-Aug-2000 14:29
Well, it sounded fun so here's what I've got. The output running it
on the two files you talked about is at the bottom. The diff shows a
list of blocks with tokens and a number which is how many times that
token was in the file. You may see the same token listed in the diff
for each file if the number of appearances is different.
Title: "Simple token diff"
I don't know, really. It just tries to
figure out how many REBOL tokens are different
between two files. Somebody thought it would
be neat. ;) Maybe they'll ake it complete and
fix whatever lurking bugs there are in this code.}

The two files differ by: 14 tokens.
