Many source-code control systems (such as the excellent TortoiseCVS and TortoiseSVN) allow you to use your own file comparison tool to examine the differences between various versions of your source code. But what if you want to use more than one diff tool? For example, you might use ECMerge or WinMerge to compare all your C++ source code, LVDiff to compare virtual instrument (VI) files written in LabVIEW, and CSDiff to compare word processor files.
meta-diff will automatically launch whichever diff program you've specified for the file type you're comparing. So point your version control system to meta-diff and enjoy the flexibility!
There are a number of excellent diff programs on the market for comparing text files. Now, LabVIEW developers using the Professional Development System can benefit from the same easy viewing of their program's history that text coders enjoy.
Launch meta-diff with a simple right click using CompareShellEx, the latest addition to the meta-diff family. Compare files and folders effortlessly, whether they're right next to each other or in distant corners of your hard drive.
