CSDiff

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This program compares lists of folders and document contents, but operates only on plain text files. It cannot compare documents created by major word processors since they save files in the binary format. The program's simple interface is basic enough for novices, but lacks advanced features for those looking for a tool to compare multiple file types. Users pick two files or folders to compare and the program creates a new document showing the differences. It can compare the documents by letter, word, or line. Its small size and ease of use make it a good tool for those who create numerous plain text files. However, CSDiff's directory-comparison function only checks file names. It cannot find files that have the same content but different names, nor compare file time stamps. Basic programmers and list makers of any ability will find this program useful.
