I tried various permutations of this script with limited success.
all the variations suggested and that i could think of only give the
lines added and deleted, not the source lines of code added/deleted.
it seems unfair to count mods this way as a single code change can be
counted as many lines changed. i have come to the conclusion the
only way to do this is to run a pretty printer first on both versions
that compresses all ada statements into single line statements, then
run the script. kind of painful since i have to write the code to
compress the source code ;-) oh well it was a nice idea for a while.
if anyone knows of a pretty printer that will do this correctly for
all ada constructs, please let me know.

for the flight control software, how many of you would disembark
