Sorry, Chris! Just a case of "no time" here. Of *course* you should
continue, and Guido should pop in with an encouraging word too -- or a
"forget it". I think this design opens the doors to a world of interesting
ideas, but that's based on informed prejudice rather than careful study of
your code. Cheer up: if everyone thought you were a lame ass, we all would
have studied your code intensely by now <wink>.

Then let's treat this like a real bug <wink>: which version of Python did
you use? And ship me the files in a tarball (I'll find a way to extract
them intact). And does that specific Python+ndiff combo work OK on *other*
files? Or does it fail to find any lines in common no matter what you feed
it (a 1-line test case would be a real help <wink>)?
I couldn't provoke a problem with the stock 1.5.2 ndiff under the stock
1.5.2 Windows Python, using the then-current CVS snapshot of ceval.c as
file1 and the ceval.c from Christian's stackless_990606.zip file as file2.
Both files have \r\n line endings for me, though (one thanks to CVS line
translation, and the other thanks to WinZip line translation).
