xmldiff - Tree 2 tree correction between xml documents
xmldiff [ options ] original_file modified_file
xmldiff [ options ] -r original_directoty modified_directory
xmldiff is a utility for extracting differences between two xml files. It returns a set
of primitives to apply on source tree to obtain the destination tree.
The implementation is based on Change detection in hierarchically structured information,

0 means no difference were found.
A positive number means some differences were found.
A negative number means an error occured.
xmldiff uses an algorithm with a (too) high algorithmical complexity, which makes it
unsuitable to process large XML documents. If your document has more than about 100 nodes,
you should probably look for an alternative solution.
Any suggestion to this issue is welcome by Logilab. Please tell us if you are aware of a
simpler algorithm to solve this problem.
