Why use Compare and Merge?



When it comes to determining the differences between text files, you have three options:

Do it by hand, which is tedious and makes mistakes too easy.
Use a command-line utility like "diff" or "fc" (which comes with Windows) but the way they show the differences is hard to understand.
Use Compare and Merge file compare utility, which shows the differences at a glance and makes it easy to resolve them.
