Question: Do you think having an inbuilt text comparison feature component in Emerald is a good idea?
Definitely! Make it central to EE!! - 1 (5.6%)
It's worth considering, possibly as a plugin? - 14 (77.8%)
I don't know; I wouldn't use it. - 2 (11.1%)
Nah. It's not right for EE, it's not really a 'text' processing feature. - 1 (5.6%)
NO!! Don't ever add it in! - 0 (0%)

File Comparison, such as might be produced by 'diff', or by ViewVC for our source code, has been suggested to be a major feature.

Some have said it is in other editors, so it would be a worthwhile addition, while others probably wouldn't ever use it.

Before we settle this debate, I'd just like to get an idea of how popular a file comparison tool actually is, to compare different versions of the same code/file/text.

I think that it may be out of the scope of EE, but we could easily add some kind of integration between EE and some various popular diff tools.

I thought this be precisely the sort of function that the plugin system would be best used for, that way we can please as many people as possible, as much of the time.

I currently run ExamDiff as a 'User Tool' in CE and this fulfills my need for a file comparison tool.

So, if EE could do likewise or have file comparison as a plugin then I think that this would be great!  Wink
