"Fast, but confusing and not free"

December 19, 2006  |  By FarmerChet

 |  Version: Guiffy 7.4

Pros

Loaded and diffed files faster than other tools tested.

Cons

In the trial version many of the lines in the files are collapsed down.

In many of my diffs there were three dots (. . .) for lines 30 to 300 in a diff.

Does this mean they are the same?

There are indicators of differences in the right of the screen, but clicking does nothing, so you cannot determine where in the file the diffs are.

Lastly, the program cannot handle line diffs. If something is the same line-by-line, but a few lines are in a different order in one file, the tool marks the files as being different.

WinDiff and others can sense this and tell you that the lines are off but that the file is otherwise the same.

Cannot seem to determine 'difference in whitespace only'.
