     6Trac has a built-in functionality for visualizing "diffs", or changes to files.

    6 There are different kinds of ''change sets''.  
    7 Some can correspond to revisions made in the repositories, 
    8 others can aggregate changes made in several revisions,  
    9 but in the end, any kind of differences can be shown. 
     8There are different kinds of ''change sets''.  Some correspond to revisions made in the repositories, others aggregate changes made in several revisions. Ultimately, any kind of difference can be shown.

    11 The changeset view consists of two parts, the ''header''  
    12 and the ''diff views''.

     12== Changeset Header 
    1513 
    1614The header shows an overview of the whole changeset. 
     
    2321 * Files — A list of files affected by this changeset 
    2422 
    25 If more than one revision is involved in the set of changes being 
    26 displayed, the ''Timestamp'', ''Author'' and ''Message'' fields  
    27 won't be shown. 
     23If more than one revision is involved in the set of changes being displayed, the ''Timestamp'', ''Author'' and ''Message'' fields will not be shown.

    29 In front of each listed file, you'll find  a colored rectangle. The color 
    30 indicates how the file is affected by the changeset. 
     25A colored rectangle indicates how the file is affected by the changeset:

    3732The color legend is located below the header as a reminder.

    41 Below the header is the main part of the changeset, the diff view. Each file is shown in a separate section, each of which will contain only the regions of the file that are affected by the changeset. There are two different styles of displaying the diffs: ''inline'' or ''side-by-side'' (you can switch between those styles using the preferences form): 
     36Below the header is the main part of the changeset, the diff view. Each file is shown in a separate section, each of which contains only the regions of the file that are affected by the changeset. There are two different styles to display the diffs: ''inline'' or ''side-by-side''. You can switch between the styles using the preferences form: 
    4237 
    43  * The ''inline'' style shows the changed regions of a file underneath each other. A region removed from the file will be colored red, an added region will be colored green. If a region was modified, the old version is displayed above the new version. Line numbers on the left side indicate the exact position of the change in both the old and the new version of the file. 
    44  * The ''side-by-side'' style shows the old version on the left and the new version on the right (this will typically require more screen width than the inline style.) Added and removed regions will be colored in the same way as with the inline style (green and red, respectively), but modified regions will have a yellow background. 
     38 * The ''inline'' style shows the changed regions of a file underneath each other. A region removed from the file will be colored red, an added region will be colored green. If a region was modified, the old version is displayed above the new version. Line numbers indicate the exact position of the change in both the old and the new version of the file. 
     39 * The ''side-by-side'' style shows the old version on the left and the new version on the right and this will typically require more screen width than the inline style. Added and removed regions will be colored in the same way as with the inline style (green and red), and modified regions will have a yellow background. 
    4540 
    4641In addition, various advanced options are available in the preferences form for adjusting the display of the diffs: 
    47  * You can set how many lines are displayed before and after every change 
    48    (if the value ''all'' is used, then the full file will be shown) 
    49  * You can toggle whether blank lines, case changes and white space changes are ignored, thereby letting you find the functional changes more quickly 
     42 * You can set how many lines are displayed before and after every change; if the value ''all'' is used, then the full file will be shown. 
     43 * You can toggle whether blank lines, case changes and white space changes are ignored, thereby letting you find the functional changes more quickly.

    54 === Examining a Changeset === 
     49When viewing a repository check-in, such as when following a changeset [wiki:TracLinks link] or a changeset event in the [wiki:TracTimeline timeline], Trac will display the exact changes made by the check-in.

    58 [wiki:TracTimeline timeline], Trac will display the exact changes 
    59 made by the check-in. 
     51There will be also navigation links to the ''Previous Changeset'' to and ''Next Changeset''.

    64 === Examining Differences Between Revisions === 
     55Often you want to look at changes made on a file or on a directory spanning multiple revisions. The easiest way to get there is from the TracRevisionLog, where you can select the ''old'' and the ''new'' revisions of the file or directory, and then click the ''View changes'' button.

    67 or on a directory spanning multiple revisions. The easiest way 
    68 to get there is from the TracRevisionLog, where you can select 
    69 the ''old'' and the ''new'' revisions of the file or directory, and

    72 === Examining Differences Between Branches === 
     59One of the core features of version control systems is the possibility to work simultaneously on different ''Lines of Developments'', commonly called "branches". Trac enables you to examine the exact differences between such branches.

    74 One of the core features of version control systems is the possibility 
    75 to work simultaneously on different ''Lines of Developments'', commonly 
    76 called “branches”. Trac enables you to examine the exact differences 
    77 between such branches. 
     61Using the '''View changes ...''' button in the TracBrowser allows you to enter ''From:'' and ''To:'' path/revision pairs. The resulting set of differences consist of the changes that should be applied to the ''From:'' content to get to the ''To:'' content.

    79 Using the '''View changes ...''' button in the TracBrowser allows you to enter 
    80 ''From:'' and ''To:'' path/revision pairs. The resulting set of differences consist 
    81 of the changes that should be applied to the ''From:'' content in order 
    82 to get to the ''To:'' content. 
     63For convenience, it is possible to invert the roles of the ''old'' and the ''new'' path/revision pairs by clicking the ''Reverse Diff'' link on the changeset page.

    87 === Checking the Last Change === 
     67Another way to examine changes is to use the ''Last Change'' link provided by the TracBrowser.

    89 The last possibility for examining changes is to use the ''Last Change'' 
    90 link provided by the TracBrowser. 
    91  
    92 This link will take you to the last change that was made on that path. 
    93 From there, you can use the ''Previous Change'' and ''Next Change'' links 
    94 to traverse the change history of the file or directory.
