MailChannels’ Ken Simpson on the new email RFCs
: diffed. the explicit statement that there is no length limit to mail headers is potentially tricky
(tags: rfcs rfc-5321 rfc-5322 email standards internet smtp)
I dunno Justin, can you trust a guy that uses Word over diff? :)
Yes, you can trust me. I have a first-class honours degree in Computer Engineering and I’ve been programming since I was seven years old. I used diff initially but it didn’t work well with the line formatting of the RFC documents.
Subsequently someone pointed out an actual RFC comparison tool, which would have been a much better choice: http://tools.ietf.org/rfcdiff
Boy do I wish I had found the RFC diff tool… Word’s diff sucks in so many ways it’s hard to articulate.
