    "Nice when it works, too bad it does not"

    June 21, 2012   |   By SadieBrownLee

    Version: Araxis Merge 70.30.4198

    Pros

    Good UI for walking through deep trees

    Cons

    Fails to detect file differences
    Incorrectly flags identical files as being different

    Summary

    I am responsible for maintaing and propagating changes across several code trees of 10,000+ files. I bought a copy of Araxis 2001, and had used it for years in this capacity.
    Teh old version did have a problem, flagging large text files as different when they were in fact identical. We had worked around this by using md5sum to determine which files were actually different.

    Bought the 2012 release, and find that in addition to it's old bad habit of false positives, we are seeing files with significant, non-whitespace differences flagged as identical.

    We have provided Araxis support with sample files where the compare fails, either positively or negatively. To date, we have not received any response from Araxis.

    So no matter how nice the UI is, this tool is a liability.
    Save you money.
