FuzzyDiff

Compares two files, tolerating numeric differences.

In the diff output, "position" refers to the characters in the string, whereas "column" is meant for the text editor.

Only one of 'ratio' or 'absdiff' has to be satisfied. Use "absdiff" to deal with cases like "zero vs. epsilon".

The command line parameters of this tool are:

Usage:
  FuzzyDiff <options>

Options (mandatory options marked with '*'):
                       
  -in1 <file>*         First input file
  -in2 <file>*         Second input file
                       
  -ratio <double>      Acceptable relative error. Only one of 'ratio' or 'absdiff' has to be satisfied.  Use 
                       "absdiff" to deal with cases like "zero vs. epsilon". (default: '1.0') (min: '1.0')
  -absdiff <double>    Acceptable absolute difference. Only one of 'ratio' or 'absdiff' has to be satisfied. 
                        (default: '0.0') (min: '0.0')
                       
  -verbose <int>       Set verbose level:
                       0 = very quiet mode (absolutely no output)
                       1 = quiet mode (no output unless differences detected)
                       2 = default (include summary at end)
                       3 = continue after errors
                        (default: '2') (min: '0' max: '3')
  -tab_width <int>     Tabulator width, used for calculation of column numbers (default: '8') (min: '1')
  -first_column <int>  Number of first column, used for calculation of column numbers (default: '1') (min: 
                       '0')
                       
Common TOPP options:
  -ini <file>          Use the given TOPP INI file
  -threads <n>         Sets the number of threads allowed to be used by the TOPP tool (default: '1')
  -write_ini <file>    Writes the default configuration file
  --help               Shows options
  --helphelp           Shows all options (including advanced)
