Synopsis ^

    use Text::WordDiff;

    my $diff = word_diff 'file1.txt', 'file2.txt';  { STYLE => 'HTMLTwoLines' };

Description ^

This class subclasses Text::WordDiff::Base to provide a XHTML formatting for Text::WordDiff. See Term::WordDiff for usage details. This class should never be used directly.

Text::WordDiff::HTMLTwoLines formats word diffs for viewing in a Web browser. The output is similar to that produced by Term::WordDiff::HTML but the two lines (or files, records, etc.) are shown separately, with deleted items highlighted in the first line and inserted items highlighted in the second. HTMLTwoLines puts a span tag around each word or set of words in the diff.

The diff content is highlighted as follows:

You may do whatever you like with these elements and classes; I highly recommend that you style them using CSS. You'll find an example CSS file in the eg directory in the Text-WordDiff distribution.
