"Diff"ing to your advantage

Published March 3, 2004
One of the many useful tools in the Unix toolkit is "diff". Basicaly, it allows you to tell the difference between 2 files rather quickly (it does some other things as well..refer to the "man" pages). The issue is that 1. It is NOT on Windows 2. Refer to above I found an equivalent on google called "winmerge". It is not exactly diff, but it does do a good job nonetheless. If you have just added some code to a large file and need to upload it to production, diff and winmerge can be your best friends. Use them!!!! Uriel
