Editors' Review

+
If you develop software for a living, you know it isn't hard to find free differencing tools. But if you do a lot of diff/merge work, especially across platforms, it can pay to, well, pay. Guiffy is a Java-based diff/merge tool with serious muscle and a much easier, more intuitive interface than you'll find on any freeware package. Not only does it work with more than 150 file formats from several platforms (Windows, Linux, Unix, and Mac OS), it also provides a trustworthy three-way merge feature called SureMerge. Since merging sometimes forces developers to stop working until the postmerge code has been checked by hand, a "smarter" three-way merge can greatly reduce overall development time. In addition to using Guiffy as a stand-alone utility, you can incorporate it into your own change-management products. Still not convinced? Compare Guiffy with its competitors and see for yourself; it's easy to spot the differences.

"This is certainly a power tool and may not meet the needs of some readers"

August 08, 2007

 |  Version: Guiffy 8 build 214

Pros

But if you need a file compare, folder compare and/or a powerful, reliable auto-merge, this tool is by far and away the best I have ever used. Since it i Java it runs on Linux and MacOSX, since we are migrating some of our operation to Apple this is great for me me, only need one diff/merge product. The command line interface seems to be a very complete implementation - so integrating with our SCM products looks like a "piece of cake".

Cons

I haven't found anything worth mentioning

Pros

but Im trying for the first time to develop software - a newbie if you will. I may not have a full grasp on it, but If I learn better how to use it, I'll come back for a better review. I just needed something easyer to follow.
