Subject: wdiff: Word context

Package: wdiff
Version: 0.6.3-1
Severity: wishlist
File: /usr/bin/wdiff


wdiff is great, but I don’t like that it always prints the whole
document, even if just a few words were changed.

I avoid this problem somewhat by using "diff -U 0 | wdiff -d", so that
only changed lines are printed. But with my documents (LaTeX files),
this is often still too much.

I’d like to see an option to wdiff that makes it print the changed words
with a context measured in words, e.g. the 5 words before and after the
change – similar to diff’s -u option.
