"Intuitive and simple"

November 12, 2007  |  By nadglobtrotter

 |  Version: WinMerge 2.6.12

Pros

Just tried the program. it is perfect for what I wanted to do : compare two php files and find the differences. The program is small, fast to load and the interface is intuitive (I installed and 30 seconds later I had the differences in my files highlighted). It is free, and really I was not asking for more. It is perfect!

"Gibberish and Error Messages"

July 08, 2007  |  By khamma

 |  Version: WinMerge 2.6.12

Pros

Nice looking.

Cons

Didn't run on my WIN XP system. All I got was error messages and gibberish. Maybe the file was corrupted. I've noticed a lot of comments about corrupted files on CNET lately. I was unwilling to invest more time in it so downloaded a couple of other apps that actually do something.

"Great product"

March 22, 2007  |  By gotpean

 |  Version: WinMerge 2.6.12

Pros

I have missed Ediff in Emacs since I switched from Linux to Windows.

WinMerge seems to be even better than Ediff.

What a relief!

"Works well for comparing and editing differences between text files"

February 15, 2007  |  By dutch-rob

 |  Version: WinMerge 2.6.12

Pros

I have used examdiff earlier and found that winmerge is better: It is also possible to edit the compared files, copy from the other file at part where the two files are different.

I also like the integration in windows explorer where you can select two files and send them straight into winmerge for comparison.

Cons

Examdiff had the possibility to drag one new file into an existing comparison while if you do that in winmerge, it empties the screen for the other file.

Examdiff also has a possibility to show only the lines with differences but with the possibility to skip to the next difference with alt-up I don't think that I miss that.

"Wonderful merge tool"

January 26, 2007  |  By tttonyyy

 |  Version: WinMerge 2.6.12

Pros

Almost every coder I know uses WinMerge, and it's obvious why. It's clean and easy to use, and makes otherwise difficult tasks easy (EG taking just the changed files and making aa patch preserving the tree structure). An essential piece of software for anyone that needs to branch and merge project code.

Cons

Only thing it doesn't do is a three-way merge. But you can run multiple instances, so that's not really a problem.
