windows Windows - Compairing Conlicting Notes - Best Practice - 3rd Party Program

Recommended Posts

What is your best 3rd party program (preferably freeware) to tackle long notes that have conflicts where using ones own eyes is just not reasonable

 

I have found WinMerge  http://winmerge.org but I haven't tried it yet

 

 

What are other people using and what is your Best Practice steps

 

(I know this was discussed someplace else but I can't find it )

For comparing source code at home and at work (pretty much on a daily basis), I use Beyond Compare (version 3; haven't tried out version 4 yet, which is still in beta), which I found to be better and more usable than WinMerge. Dunno about best practice, but the rare times I've needed / wanted to do this sort of thing I've exported the two offending files out to disk as .ENEX files, and gone at it with BC.

Winmerge will do the job once you get around the kind've obscure starting screens.  I use that or Word 2013 (not exactly free) which will also highlight differences in text
