src, a destination string
dest and an optional minimum word size
size. It returns a patch object that can be later used by
ide.patch to reconstruct the destination string.
size parameter determines the minimum length of a single patch string, the algorithm will optimize the result based on this number.
A patch object consists of an array of triplets, where the first item is the string to be inserted, the second, the characters to be skipped from the original string and the third the characters removed after inserting.
This function takes the original source string
str and the result of a previous diff
patch. The result will be the destination string
