[BZ#760828] Cannot Diff PDF Files
Submitted by Mat Jaggard
I see quite a lot of requests to allow binary files to be handled, I'm adding mine to them (as a new bug because they all talk about encoding and my issue is not encoding related).
I am performing a diff on PDF files. The contain text which I need to compare and binary data which I don't care about. In particular they have some binary data early in the file to ensure that they are transferred as binary by FTP and other protocols. diff -a does exactly what I want. I don't really care about what text encoding is used (as long as the first 128 characters are the normal ones)
Ideally I'd have a "force" button on the warning that tells me that they're binary files.
