File Merging/Comparison Tools

Eclipse provides file merging out of the box. Even though no additional plugins are required to use file merging, I personally don't prefer to open eclipse just for file comparison.

Windows tool
WinMerge is a open source comparing, synchronizing and merging tool for windows.

  • Visual differencing and merging of text files
  • Flexible editor with syntax highlighting, line numbers and word-wrap
  • Moved lines detection
  • Folder comparision including sub folders
  • Works like a version control, creates patch files, resolve conflicts
Notepad++ plugin

 The simplest way to compare files is using npp compare plugin. After installation of this plugin, we can enable file comparison with a shortcut and it compares last two files opened in the notepad++ windows.
