I am trying to infer the differences between two projects, however so far it has been really painful, because one of the parties has done auto-formatting on the code.
Basically, this makes a merging tool like meld find many differences because the spacing in one of the projects has changed.
Is there another way to compare two projects which are similar, by ignoring syntactical changes.
One option to reduce the number of differences meld shows is to use the
text filters and check:
- ignore changes which insert or delete blank lines
- c++ comment
- all whitespaces
and you can add custom filters, for example, to ignore
How "healthy it is to do this, I don't know...
