open-vcdiff contains an encoder and decoder for the format described in RFC 3284: "The VCDIFF Generic Differencing and Compression Data Format." Given a source file and target file, the encoder produces a compact delta file expressing the differences between the two. The decoder reconstructs the target file from the source and delta files. The package includes libraries, headers, and a command-line executable. The chief reason for developers to use open-vcdiff instead of the existing Xdelta package is that open-vcdiff has been released under the Apache license rather than GPL.
