| grep can find two words one after the other by doing 'grep "word1
| word2"'. Does anybody know a way of making this return a case where
| word1 is at the end of one line, and word2 is at the start of the
one easy(?) solution is to use GNU awk:
gawk -vRS='' '/word1[[:space:]\n]+word2/'
not sure if that will work with other AWKs or not.
note, however, the above prints the entire (La)TeX
paragraph — I'm assuming here yer paragraphs are
separated by empty lines (and not, e.g., \par) —
that contains the two adjacent words, not just the
one or two lines containing the words.
a more sophisticated AWK script can be written to
print just the one or two lines.
| On a similar note, I'm looking for a diff/merge tool that takes the
| flow of a paragraph into account. I'm trying to merge two slightly
| different copies of the same latex document. I saw texdiff, but its
| not exactly what I'm looking for, which would be more like a the
| standard diff tool. I also looked at wdiff, but it doesn't really
| merge things, and looks like it will be hard to use. Can anyone
| suggest better?
hum. since all unescaped whitespace is the same to
(La)TeX, you could, perhaps, put each word (which is
not in a %comment) on a separate line, and then just
use diff(1)? the result would not be very friendly
to human editors .... ;-(
b.t.w., where is `texdiff'? I have never heard of it.
