    If you need to indicate something about the version of your vim or what is supported, you can edit the question body to do so; tags can be discussed on Vi and Vim Meta

You can see which lines are different in diff mode:

echo filter(range(1, line('$')), 'diff_hlID(v:val, 1) == hlID("DiffChange") || diff_hlID(v:val, 1) == hlID("DiffText")')

  • How do I use this? When I put this on the command line this is what I see :>echo filter(range(1, line('$')), 'diff_hlID(v:val, 1) == hlID("DiffChange") || diff_hlID(v:val, 1) == hlID("DiffText")') bash: syntax error near unexpected token (' `.

  • When I put this in vim this is what I see E117: Unknown function: range E116: Invalid arguments for function filter(range(1, line('$')), 'diff_hlID(v:va l, 1) == hlID("DiffChange") || diff_hlID(v:val, 1) == hlID("DiffText")') E15: Invalid expression: filter(range(1, line('$')), 'diff_hlID(v:val, 1) == hlI D("DiffChange") || diff_hlID(v:val, 1) == hlID("DiffText")') Hit ENTER or type command to continue .

  • @cokedude it works for me, maybe your vim version is too old?
