Talk:Colorize diff output

From Rosetta Code

Is this supposed to be a task?

If so, you are missing task markup, a task description, a goal, or really anything to help someone implement an entry. Also I assume this is Gnu diff-utils diff? If so, you are aware of the --color option? As in: diff --color FILE1 FILE2 What's the point? --Thundergnat (talk) 23:43, 26 October 2020 (UTC)

Agreed, it could be as simple as describing what you do to what input and asking others to do the same. --Paddy3118 (talk) 13:54, 27 October 2020 (UTC)

possible rename of the task

I suggest a possible renaming of the task:

                                Colorize different parts of some text to be displayed 

--- or something along those lines.   I'm assuming that some colorized text being displayed   (or parts of the text)   is to be colorized   (possibly with more than one section,   and possibly with each section being a different color).     -- Gerard Schildberger (talk) 14:05, 27 October 2020 (UTC)

If we are just to demonstrate colorizing parts of text in a terminal, would not Checksumcolor already cover that? I reiterate; What's the point? (Not to Gerard, to the original author) --Thundergnat (talk) 16:43, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
