RE: Question about svn diff --xml

What we are trying to do is to show, in a web application, differences
from revisions of a file and some statistical information like number of
modified lines in a the file.
So, it could help an xml output of diff, that we could transform with
the appropriate xslt.

The files are not XML itself, but java or c# source code.

I don't know how the xml output would look like.
In this concrete momment my simple needs are:
 - To show side by side (something similar to visual merge tools), for
example in a html table, the modified lines in different revisions of
the file
- To show the number of modified lines (I guess this could be achieved
by other ways different from xml output of diff)
