Binary diff in Mercurial
To do this you can use the extdiff extension with the vbindiff program (available in Ubuntu).
Edit your Mercurial config (
~/.hgrc) to include the following lines:
[extensions] extdiff = [extdiff] cmd.bdiff = vbindiff
Now you can get a diff of a binary file with the following command:
$ hg bdiff <filename>
