TIL about the diff command, which is probably old news to many of you. Very handy in conflict resolution when syncing files in #orgmode.
Then, of course, I learned #Emacs has its own more powerful version of that.
I'm excited to learn this :)
@jrss You mean the diff command in terminal or in Emacs. If in Emacs, I really dig the ediff commands.
@jrss I haven't used the Emacs `diff`, but I use `ediff` heavily.
The following link (a really old blog post of mine) does not have ediff tips, but a "DWIM" wrapper around ediff functions so that I need to call just that one ediff-related binding :)
@kaushalmodi still not getting it from what I saw and your post. Seems like the regular emacs diff is good enough to compare org files...? Having hard time finding a video examples of how to use, etc.
@jrss From what I understand, ediff is more interactive. About the M-x diff, there is this in the manual: http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/emacs/Diff-Mode.html
