    Text File Compare & Merge Tool
    superCool is looking for a good text file comparison tool. something that will compare all the like-named files between 2 directories and show the differences. some of these tools also help you merge the versions, that would be nice also.

    does anyone use a tool like this?

    thanks in advance.

    your friend,
    superCool

    PSPad has a nice compare tool, not sure if it does any merging, never tried. It has many useful tools and it is free It's at http://www.pspad.com/en/ and works in many languages in case you're building a site for Algerian skiers or something. Have at it.

    superCool downloaded the free trial of Beyond Compare and gave it a try. it's very powerful and it will take some time to learn all the secrets. looks like a winner though. thanks for the advice.

    I just use DOS and Excel. In DOS you can create a .txt file of all the files in a specific directory.
