ABSTRACT

This generic package contains routines to compare two ASCII files.  It
produces as output a side-by-side listing of both files, showing their
differences in a very readable format, and also produces an update
deck which can be used to provide a mapping between the two files.
This update deck is meant to be input for Context_Directed_Update_Utilities.
