Compare text files
Select (or drag and drop) two plain text or TEI Files to compare to each other
This setting allows to normalize both input files, by replacing and removing words or part of words.
Every line in the normalization file represents one normalization rule. A normalization rule is a sequence of characters without whitespace or two sequences of characters separated by whitespace.
A rule with two character sequences e.g.
ſ s will replace every instance of long-s ſ with a normal s before comparing the texts.
Rules without whitespace characters will represent sequences that are to be removed from both files before comparing the texts.
An example could be as follows:
These rules would remove every occurence of PAGEBREAK from both files and replace every "ſ" with "ss" before comparing the texts.
