As a software or website developer, there will come a time when you might require a tool to help you compare files that contain code lines. A solution to this issue comes from ExamDiff, a handy visual comparing tool that highlights all the differences between two text files.
You will be able to compare large files, character by character, and locate all dissimilarities between the two selected documents within seconds.
It's an easy and time-saving solution when it comes to comparing and synchronizing two text files.
The application will give you access to a search tool that will help you find code lines a lot easier. Adding to that, you can adjust the highlights color palette the way you like, change the font, enable notifications and many other.
The biggest drawback of using ExamDiff is that you won't be able to edit the content of the compared files directly on the program's interface. This feature is available only for the Pro version.
To be straight, I've found ExamDiff to be very effective and I was more than happy with its performance, but I would only recommend it to professional developers, as its interface might seem a bit hard to handle to beginner users.
