The e-commerce.

understand the update notes


Recommended Posts



this question might sound strange to many of you but they we go


i would apprtiate if some one can clarify to me how to read this update note


normally a DIFF table is produced:



LEFT and RIGHT columnes. Is the Left the original and the Right the updated one showing the strings to add to the left one?


+- does it mean remove the lines from the right column

-+ does it mean add strigs to the right column

<> can u explain how to read this one too

= this is one is clear, no change


the problem that confused me is that often there is change in the LEFT and RIGHT columnes, then i do not know how to read this. When the change is only on the right then it is easy

Easy way is to download the complete file and use winmerge to compare / update the orig file.


Then you can see which ones mean insert line, delete line, replace line


Is there an application that can present all changes since a certain date instead of having to do it manually using a program like winmerge?
