  Version         : 1.1.2
  Upstream Author : Jason Chen <jhchen7@xxxxxxxxx>

  Description     : Fast _javascript_ text diff
 .
 A simplified import of the excellent diff-match-patch library
 by Neil Fraser into the Node.js environment. The match and patch parts
 are removed, as well as all the extra diff options. What remains is
 incredibly fast diffing between two strings.
 .
 The diff function is an implementation of "An O(ND) Difference Algorithm
 and its Variations" (Myers, 1986) with the suggested divide and conquer
 strategy along with several optimizations. 
 .
 Node.js is an event-based server-side _javascript_ engine.
 .
 It is a simplified import of diff-match-patch library which makes diffing
 between two strings incredibly fast.
 .
 I would like to maintain this package as part of the _javascript_ packaging
 team. Praveen has offered to sponsor this package.
