File comparison made easy
After trying out a few tools (that became an exercise in itself) I found that WinMerge from SourceForge did a very good job. With WinMerge you get a visual map outline of the files being compared with the differences clearly marked out. As you edit the files the map outline also changes to reflect the new status.
To move text from one file to the other all you need to do is right click
at the border of the files then select
the direction of text movement. You can also easily merge entire files if
thats what your situation requires.
