Diff and Spaces

Amy’s dump of the CE/Vista settings table ended up with a slightly different format than mine. I was able to use sed to rejoin the correct lines. This resulted in two files with spaces on about half of the lines in the file. Ouch.

Thankfully diff has a -b flag to ignore the spaces. Really useful in this case.

Now… To figure out why a pattern I copy and paste from a file is not found with grep.
🙂
