I have 2 recorded IDA pro instruction traces, how can I get a list of differing instructions?

I am able to load the diffs as overlays but there are a large amount of instructions recorded that are mostly the same so being able to get a short-list of the different instructions would save a lot of time.

Thank you.


I don't think this is available from the UI, but there are APIs you can use to enumerate trace log records, e.g. see tracing_api plugin sample in the SDK.

  • Could I please get a link? I've done some googling and read through the help file for IDA but haven't been able to find anything on tracing_api. Thanks. – user3238415 Nov 17 '19 at 1:07
