Another useful Windows text file compare program

Post by DFH » Thu Dec 14, 2017 6:54 pm

I discovered this yesterday, and it's growing on me.

Diffinity supports UTF-8.

Not yet quite as well integrated into the Windows Shell as WinMerge,
but it beats that on comparing non-Roman scripts such as Devanagari, Biblical Hebrew or modern Urdu.

Right alignment for the Right to Left scripts would be an improvement if they can manage that.

There's a user forum to report software bugs and/or suggest enhancements.

Thanks David, a good reference.

This can be included as the default DIFF tool into TextPipe using Edit\Preferences.
