Reconstruct the actual output from my unit test tool report - 95 entries

When a test fails, my unit test tool reports differences between the actual output and the expected output as follow: - line in the expected output but missing in the actual output are prefixed with a dash - unexpected lines in the actual output are prefixed with a plus sign - comments added by the unit test tool are prefixed with a question mark - common lines are showed `as-is` (well, almost;) From that "diff" format, I would like to reconstruct the actual output.
