This library's module, Text::WordDiff, is a variation on the lovely Text::Diff module. Rather than generating traditional line-oriented diffs, however, it generates word-oriented diffs. This can be useful for tracking changes in narrative documents or documents with very long lines. To diff source code, one is still best off using Text::Diff. But if you want to see how a short story changed from one version to the next, this module will do the job very nicely.
To install this module, type the following:
perl Build.PL ./Build ./Build test ./Build install
Or, if you don't have Module::Build installed, type the following:
perl Makefile.PL make make test make install
Text::WordDiff requires the following modules:
- Algorithm::Diff '1.19',
- Term::ANSIColor '0',
- HTML::Entities '0',
