I am thinking specifically of comparing two files using
diff in linux or git (for those of you familiar with it), but this relates, I think, to any comparison.
I have two files.
File 1 and
File 1 is the older, original file - the one that is the base of comparison.
File 2 is the 'draft' file - the one that will be compared against
File 1 to assert differences, in this case additions or reductions in lines of text.
I want to compare them - how can I refer to each file?
File 1: comparer, original, base, original, current, active
File 2: comparee, draft, new
Is there an agreed upon naming convention for this scenario?
