Compare and display differences in text files.

Overview

Differences Examiner allows you to compare text files and to highlight their differences to analyze them.

  • You can compare and display differences between text files.
  • It shows you the differences by displaying identical, modified and missing lines in color.
  • It accepts any kind of text file such as plain text or source code.
  • You can drag and drop the files you want to compare on the window or on the icon of the application.
  • You can copy and paste or drag and drop the texts you want to compare on the window.
  • You can display line numbers on the left of each file.
  • You can hide the identical lines to display only the differences.
  • It doesn't need any installation which makes it very easy to use.
  • It is available in Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Portugese, Spanish and many other languages.

Quick recap: if you have not done so already, install the Developer tools from your OS X CD. /Developer/Applications/Utilities/File Merge.app is superior to this item in both functionality and price. Also, if you want a payware diff tool, BBEdit has an excellent Find Differences command, plus a few thousand other handy features.

ditto this is a free feature of most text editing programs, comes bundled with mac os x, and there are also freeware applications that do better for free

Diff'npatch and others (see other comments) do the same job, for free, faster, better, and with a better interface.

Rather use DiffFrontend, it's free and it does the same job better.

If the critiquers would spend the time they put into critiquing into demonstrating their own great prowess into programming the superior application they seem capable of programming, the user would have more choices, and those who are trying to provide some service in the meantime will not be unnecessarily disparaged. Not using Unix myself or knowing other diffs programs for the mac, I would be happy to use this, even if it is slow in comparing large text files (and though it only shows the lines that have been changed rather than the exact text). I enjoyed AlphaOmega's file concatenating program, so at least I have found some use for their software. So, why don't we prove ourselves with actions and save the real critiques for the programs which are actually harmful in some way (whether in function or content)?

Wow, 1.2mb for a frontend for 'diff'? It must be RealBASIC. And it must be AlphaOmega software! I can't wait to see this gem listed on www.perversiontracker.com!

Oh, lighten up folks! This kind of thing is the "price" we pay for free development tools, easy-to-use frameworks, and an open market in OS X software. "Let the buyer beware." Furthermore... People should not test downloads using administrative access, by means of which they can do true damage to their systems.

I have downloaded this version of DE 1.2 and in the modified file, I: Modifed lines Removed Lines Added lines Unfortunately, DE still does *NOT* work,what ever the author says in his comments below... All edits were shown as "modified", never deleted or added. This stinks, and the GUI still sucks with navigation issues.

I know nothing about this software. It could be great, or it could be the worst $5 you ever spent. What I do know is that you can get a very solid file/folder comparison tool for $0. Apple's FileMerge utility is part of the Xcode Developer Tools, which you can download once you have signed up for a free ADC Online Membership.

The problem concerning bad comparisons has been corrected. It was due to the difference of carriage return implementation between Macintosh, Windows and Linux.

Thank you AlphaOmega. I look forward to seeing any of your software - for cheap, sick laughs. Yep, each one of your applications is so hidously bad, laughing cannot be restrained. Please give up and find yourself a hobby you might actually be good at. AlphaOmega software is example of how software should not be written. Should be included in Academic studies to show bad examples of software.

This application does not work. It does not correctly show differences where lines have been removed or added. the only difference that this POS can detect is when 'a line has changed'. In fact, if you add a new line and compare the original, this new line ' has been modified'. This should have never have been released. The UI is a disaster as well. An absolutely hideous application. The author, who cannot code to save his life, should remove this application ASAP. I cannot believe this is shareware. It shouldn't even be freeware. It should have been made public.

Can't get the thing to work. I try to drag TextEdit files and nothing happens. When I drag and drop the actual text it goes in each window but nothing happens when I click compare. OS 10.2.6
