forensics-colorize

show differences between files using color graphics

Description

forensics-colorize is a set of tools to visually compare large files, as filesystem images, creating graphics of them. It is intuitive because the produced graphics provide a quick and perfect sense about the percentage of changes between two files.

Comparing large textual files using a simple diff can produce a very big result in lines, causing confusion. On the other hand, diff is improper to compare binary files.

This package provides two command line programs: filecompare and colorize. The filecompare command is used to create a special and auxiliary input file for colorize. The colorize command will generate an intuitive graphic that will make easier to perceive the level of changes between the files.
