    xdelta algorithm/binary diff

    Hi,
    I'm currently doing a research on the xdelta algorithm. But it's hard to find good documentation and implementations.
    Do you some good documents/sites?

    By the way: Is there maybe a better Algorithm for binary diffs?

    Thanks

    Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.

    I know the source of 2.0 and 3.0 they're both very complex and hard to read.

    Sounds like a learning experience to me. If you can't read other people's code, you'll be doomed to beg for simple explanations for the rest of your life. And if the algorithm isn't simple, you're screwed.
