diff using two different xzm files?

Post#1 by Ed_P » 05 Jan 2017, 05:47

I seem to recall reading here that there was a way to find the difference between two modules. I've searched but can't find it. diff version1.xzm version2.xzm isn't it. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks. :)
Ed

sudo save-changes 1.xzm
# Do some processing to generate required changes
sudo save-changes 2.xzm
mkdir a b
sudo mount 1.xzm a
sudo mount 2.xzm b
diff -qr b a

The thing I was looking for is what you posted fulalas but I like the sounds of your command brokenman.

Thanks guys. :friends:
