(127/207) 2879746 - RFE: Compare with original version

It would be nice to have an option to compare/diff a 'dirty' (modified) buffer with an unmodified version = an easy way to see what is changed since the buffer was opened.

Do you want to see the actual diff, or just to see which lines changed? If you don't need the actual diff, try the DirtyGutter plugin; it marks which lines changed from the saved version.
if you do need the actual diff, I suggest to add this feature to JDiffPlugin.

While this doesn't always apply, if your file is in Subversion, you can use the SVN plugin to do a diff against the base version to see what has changed.
