I vote diff like module. Also, c, d and e on separate lines is the Right Way IMHO (they aren't the same thing afterall).

    It looks helpful, especially the tabular output format. But it only handles two lists at a time. I'm trying to determine how to take DIFF(X,Y), produce two new modified lists, and then do something with those and Z to balance all three.

      Text::Diff3, though it's hard to tell from the POD how useful it is. Algorithm::Merge looks promising though.

      UPDATE: Also, you'll have to bug tye to add diff3 support to Algorithm::Diff, or the Text::Diff author to alternately use Algorithm::Merge.

        Well, there could be more than just three lists. There could be a dozen.
