Compare and Merge Code in two different files – File compare tool


WinMerge is an open source differencing and merging tool for Windows. This tool can compare both folders and files and present differences in a visual text format. It is more readable and gives precise information.

I found this tool very useful for me while developing SQL files for my project. Me and my team has developed lot of SQL query files as part of our project. Often, we exchange our ideas and lot of codes in SQL files. Each file is a module in our project. Unknowingly, we have got lot of SQL files for each module. We do have comments in each file. But, some of the files as minor changes that is very hard to eye-ball entire file.

I know we should have TFS or some version control software to handle this. But, This is not the time to think about that. We need to find the differences between some files to get the exact logic we implemented for that module.

I did the Google search as usual and found this tool. This tool helped me a lot and suggest you to just download and use this tool.
