Editors' Review

+

Whether you want to compare Word documents or PERL code, ExamDiff Pro loads any two files of your choice and shows you how they differ from each other.

Similar to its free cousin, but offering up many more options and customization, ExamDiff Pro displays the two files side by side, highlighting differences and allowing you to make changes on the fly. The app's handy interface offers several navigation schemes--buttons that take you to the previous or next change, a drop-down list of differences by line, or mouse functionality going directly to any line in either document.

What's more, if you open a subfolder or file in one directory, the program automatically compares it with the same item in the second. Files can be scrolled in tandem or separately, and there are numerous options for comparing items: looking at differences by line, word, or character; ignoring spaces; or only viewing similarities. Colors can be customized, and changes can be saved to one or both opened files. Output can be in Unix DIFF or HTML.

ExamDiff Pro should appeal to all levels of developers, from those just learning HTML to seasoned pros.

"5 stars in not Enough"

March 20, 2007  |  By Saint Yukon

 |  Version: ExamDiff Pro 4.0

Pros

I use ExamDiff Pro to compare my primary hard drive with my backup hard drive so that I can either delete obsolete files or restore missing files.

Cons

5 stars is not enough to truly rate ExamDiff Pro.

"Good 4 wrd txt sware src code, maintaining backups >USB"

April 21, 2009  |  By keithsware

 |  Version: ExamDiff Pro 4.0

Pros

Like being able to copy or plain edit text between two files being compared. Like also the ability to nest directory comparison through chain of sub directories, this saves a lot of time.

Cons

Nothing i dont like although the plug ins for office document comparisons could be improved. Developers spend time doing documentation, source code development & making backups of old projects. Last 2 points are fully covered, first needs some work.

Summary

I've been using this app for several months now, has never failed. Appears to be error free, is a pleasure to use and was worth every penny spent on it.

"Makes Version Control a Piece of Cake!!!"

October 02, 2008  |  By jseith

 |  Version: ExamDiff Pro 4.0

Pros

No learning curve to get it up and running. It does everything it is supposed to do quickly. It's great, I use it at school for my research. I got hooked on it when everyone at at my internship was using it

Cons

It would be nice to be able to compare .doc files and other very common files and be able to filter out header and formatting info possibly.

Summary

Extremely useful, lightweight, and easy to use.

"Most intuitive and quick difference viewer"

September 01, 2008  |  By antonioluna

 |  Version: ExamDiff Pro 4.0

Pros

Very clear, compatibility with mouse wheel, flexible in the configuration, allows extremely large files to compare...

Cons

I can only think of better difference viewers just for specialized things, such as XML. For general use, code and text, ExamDiff is perfect.

Summary

I always recommend it to my colleagues.

"Works like a Mac"

June 27, 2008  |  By Bob Breckenridge

 |  Version: ExamDiff Pro 4.0

Pros

The last time I had such an easy-to-use experience was when I opened my first Macintosh computer (and SE/30). Absolutely great program in every way, which I've been using for the past year. I first used it when migrating a 2 source control codelines from Visual SourceSafe to Subversion. The migration went off without one single hitch, thanks to the help from ExamDiff Pro. Without the ease of use, I'm sure I would have flubbed up something after all those diffs.

Cons

There was nothing I didn't like about it; literally everything was as obvious as I could imagine, nothing more than clicking the mouse to drill into detail, just like it should be.

"Long-time user"

May 15, 2008  |  By milkchaser

 |  Version: ExamDiff Pro 4.0

Pros

I have been using this software for over 5 years. It is the most comprehensive, configurable and reliable file and directory comparison tool I have ever used. Today I contacted the author to request a feature. He pointed me to an existing feature that accomplished the same thing. Good support from Gregory and an incredible array of features. If you've ever had to make comparisons of directories (e.g. comparing two backup images) you really need EDP's directory comparison. This tool is fast and reliable.
