Introduction

Smart Diff displays the diff of set of source files. It takes 'svn status' output as input and displays the files in a graphical tree structure. Many times as developers, we happen to rename files in the name of refactoring. In those scenarios the renamed file will be a new file and we will not be able to compare it with the old file. Going through the changes manually, across all modified files is a pain. That is where Smart Diff can help you; it has a provision to mention what is your old file name (or pattern) and the new one. This information is used to diff the new files. For example, Old files: ===== BookCatagory.java TopicCategory.java Renamed files: =========== BookDivision.java TopicDivision.java [It works for any type of source file] Now to compare first set with second set all you need to provide is 'Category' and 'Division' and the output of 'svn status' (irrespective of whether the new files are added and/or the old files are removed).
