I want to upgrade a software component and it needs to compare more than 1000 separate files.
( compare old version and new version files )
It would be possible to compare one by one with the notepad ++ compare extension, while I would like to automate this process by knime flow. Is there any idea to run it?
Most of the codes has 99% similarity, And just I want to find out the differentiate between files.
yes, if you got a , everything might look like a nail, but why not try this with a more appropriate tool? I would just add this as two commits to a blank Git repo and get the diff (optionally ignoring whitespaces changes if needed).
# add old files here
git add -A && git commit -m "old version"
# add changed files here
git add -A && git commit -m "new version"
git diff HEAD~1
And if you really want to get back to the hammer, there’s even some Git nodes for KNIME:
