DIF file extension - Diff output from Diff command script for Patch command file
What is dif file? How to open dif files?
File type specification:
The dif file extension is related to the Diff output from Diff command script for Patch command file format.
Diff is a file comparison utility that outputs the differences between two files, or the changes made to a current file by comparing it to a former version of the same file.
Diff displays the changes made per line for text files. Modern implementations also support binary files. The output is called a diff or a patch since the output can be applied with the Unix program patch. The output of similar file comparison utilities are also called a "diff". Like the use of the word "grep" for describing the act of searching, the word diff is used in jargon as a verb for calculating any difference.
