class Diff::LCS::Hunk

A Hunk is a group of Blocks which overlap because of the context surrounding each block. (So if we’re not using context, every hunk will contain one block.) Used in the diff program (bin/diff).

Attributes

blocks[R]
end_new[R]
end_old[R]
file_length_difference[R]
flag_context[RW]

Change the “start” and “end” fields to note that context should be added to this hunk.

start_new[R]
start_old[R]

new(data_old, data_new, piece, flag_context, file_length_difference) click to toggle source

Create a hunk using references to both the old and new data, as well as the piece of data.

# File lib/diff/lcs/hunk.rb, line 10
def initialize(data_old, data_new, piece, flag_context, file_length_difference)
  # At first, a hunk will have just one Block in it
  @blocks = [ Diff::LCS::Block.new(piece) ]
  if String.method_defined?(:encoding)
    @preferred_data_encoding = data_old.fetch(0, data_new.fetch(0,'') ).encoding
  end
  @data_old = data_old
  @data_new = data_new

  after += @blocks[0].diff_size
  @file_length_difference = after # The caller must get this manually

  # Save the start & end of each array. If the array doesn't exist (e.g.,
  # we're only adding items in this block), then figure out the line
  # number based on the line number of the other file and the current
  # difference in file lengths.
  if @blocks[0].remove.empty?
    a1 = a2 = nil

    a1 = @blocks[0].remove[0].position

Public Instance Methods

diff(format) click to toggle source

Returns a diff string based on a format.

# File lib/diff/lcs/hunk.rb, line 97
def diff(format)
  case format
  when :old
    old_diff
  when :unified
    unified_diff
  when :context
    context_diff
  when :ed
    self
  when :reverse_ed, :ed_finish
    ed_diff(format)
  else
    raise "Unknown diff format #{format}."
  end
end
merge(hunk) click to toggle source

Merges this hunk and the provided hunk together if they overlap. Returns a truthy value so that if there is no overlap, you can know the merge was skipped.

# File lib/diff/lcs/hunk.rb, line 77
def merge(hunk)
  if overlaps?(hunk)
    @start_old = hunk.start_old
    @start_new = hunk.start_new
    blocks.unshift(*hunk.blocks)
  else
    nil
  end
end
Also aliased as: unshift
overlaps?(hunk) click to toggle source

Determines whether there is an overlap between this hunk and the provided hunk. This will be true if the difference between the two hunks start or end positions is within one position of each other.

# File lib/diff/lcs/hunk.rb, line 91
def overlaps?(hunk)
  hunk and (((@start_old - hunk.end_old) <= 1) or
            ((@start_new - hunk.end_new) <= 1))
end
