Java diff result makes no sense

Hi,

I have written a small shellscript
Imagine dbalt.txt already existed...
"
....
Code:
touch report.txt
lynx -dump "http://site.com/index.htm" > site1.txt
lynx -dump "http://site.com/index2.htm" > site2.txt
grep -E 'Nummer: |EUR' site1.txt > preis1.txt
grep -E 'Nummer: |EUR' site2.txt > preis2.txt
cat preis2.txt >> preis1.txt
cut -d: -f2 preis1.txt > db.txt
rm preis2.txt
rm preis1.txt
rm site1.txt
rm site2.txt
rm report.txt
diff  -i dbalt.txt db.txt > report.txt

rm dbalt.txt
mv db.txt dbalt.txt

"
Although the content of the 2 textfiles db.txt and dbalt.txt
didn't changed, the result of diff is like this one:

"
57,58d56
< 1661434
< EUR8.691,-
60a59,60
> 1661434
> EUR8.691,-
92a93,96
> 1652633
> EUR5.990,-
> 1592748
> EUR6.501,-
95,96d98
< 1538084
< EUR6.401,-
99,100d100
< 1652633
< EUR5.990,-
"

What the H.... should I do?

mfg,

Add below lines before diff command in your script.

Code:
dos2unix db.txt db.txt
dos2unix dbalt.txt  dbalt.txt

It doesn't Work!

The Problem even gets bigger.
Now the result is the whole file.

Padding diff result

Hi, Is there a way to add padding to a diff result in unix so number of "< .." lines will be equal to number of "> .." lines? For example, if the original result is: 9a10 > "line which exists only in one file" The changed result would be: 9a10 < "noMatch" --- > "line which exists... (5 Replies)
