How do you deal with .new files after upgradepkg?


I usually use either diff or vim.

Does anyone know of a better way or is that it?

I often find the output of sdiff easier to read than plain diff,
but yeah, that's what it comes down to :)


Cheers,

diff, sdiff
If you have slackpkg installed (from extra packages), you may use its handy shell function.
Code:
. /usr/libexec/slackpkg/functions.d/post-functions.sh
