Submission + - Researchers Expanding Diff, Grep Unix Tools (itworld.com)

itwbennett writes: "At the Usenix Large Installation System Administration (LISA) conference, being held this week in Boston, two Dartmouth computer scientists presented variants of the grep and diff Unix command line utilities that can handle more complex types of data. The new programs, called Context-Free Grep and Hierarchical Diff, will provide the ability to parse blocks of data rather than single lines. The research has been funded in part by Google and the U.S. Energy Department."
