Windiff.exe: WinDiff File and Directory Comparison

This GUI tool shows the differences between specified ASCII text files, or folders containing ASCII text files. This is particularly useful for program source code.

The display shows either a summary of the comparison status of a list of files (outline mode) or a detailed line-by-line comparison of one of the files (expanded mode).

You can run WinDiff as a Windows-based application, using menu commands to choose files to compare and perform other actions. Or you can run WinDiff from the command line by using parameters described in the tool's Help.

Files Required

  • Windiff.exe

  • Windiff.hlp

  • Gutils.dll
