Table diff

Table diff

Eskil can compare tables in comma/tab separated text files and display them like a table.

eskil -table apa1.csv apa2.csv

Eskil will try to auto-detect the separator but you can also give it using -sep. Example for tab separation:

eskil -table -sep '\t' apa1.csv apa2.csv

Eskil has a built in plugin, csv, than can preprocess table files. This example clears the "Short" and "Long" columns before comparison:

eskil -table apa1.csv apa2.csv -block -sep '\t' -plugin csv -csvignore "Short Long"
