Code Compare 4.2.221reviewed by Tony Hill on 4 star rating4 star rating4 star rating4 star rating4 star rating4/5
Code Compare is a file comparison utility. It supports comparison of up to three files at once and integration with version control systems, like SVN and Git. It can be used to compare two files with changes made to version control system, allowing programmers to easily identify commit errors. In addition, whole folders can be compared at once, with the possibility to include or exclude certain file types.

Text can be merged between files with a single click, and when comparing folders, compared files are listed in a folder tree, where modified, added or deleted files are colored with different colors.

For comparing source code changes and syntax highlighting, there are many popular programming languages supported, including Java, HTML, C++ and others. Intellisense and comparison by structure is supported when comparing files containing source code. Furthermore, similar lines are detected, and white spaces, new lines, comments and different cases can be ignored.

Multiple file comparisons can be opened at once, as it comes with a tabbed interface. It also comes with its own editor, with search and bookmark support, in which all blocks of text with differences are colored, specific changes within lines of code are highlighted, and moved blocks of code are detected. In addition, it also supports code comments, which can be useful for teams of programmers working on the same code.

It can be used as a standalone app, from command-line, or integrated into Visual Studio or Windows Explorer. Hotkeys, fonts, coloring and some other options can be changed as well, while shortcuts, toolbars, windows, and other personalized settings, can be also exported for later use.
