What Unix program generates commutative operational transforms for databases, or even for plain text?

(You): What Unix program generates commutative operational transforms for databases, or even for plain text?

(Jeff): Do you mean SQL?

(Jeff): if that’s the case, plain text is the answer

(You): no, I mean something like the wikipedia entry for ‘operational transforms’. The order in which edits arrive is irrelevant.

(Jeff): Could you give me an example with more detail what exactly you’re trying to do?

(Jeff): not very sure :( Off top of my head, I don’t think there is one on native Unix

(You): rats — but luckily someone else answered.

(Jeff): What was the answer? I’m interested in that as well.

(You): git or any CVS should do this. See: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2941084/commutative-operational-transform-diffs-for-databases [http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2941084/commutative-operational-transform-diffs-for-databases] for the continuing discussion.

(Jeff): Cool. Good to know. Thanks.
