Code Compare is an advanced visual file comparison tool and a major step forward in source code comparison. Devart's programmer-to-programmer philosophy ensures that both freeware Code Compare and powerful Code Compare Pro software are tailored to perfectly meet users' needs in change tracking and file merging.
Code Compare Main Key Features:
Source code comparison has just become a child's play! Code Compare introduces the concept of Code Orientation, ultimately standing it out of competitive file comparison software. The concept implies syntax highlighting as well as unique structure and lexical comparison algorithms. Code Compare takes into account language specifics, which allows comparing sources in several of the most popular programming languages as code!
- Smooth Visual Studio Integration
Striving to make source file comparison and merge even more effective, we've added unique Visual Studio integration functionality to Code Compare. The true freedom of performing all the development and merging operations within one environment at the same time is finally at your hands. With a file comparison tool integrated, Visual Studio receives a special Code Compare menu and toolbar, which contain every function you needed for file comparison and 3-way merge.
Three-way comparison and merge is one of the strongest functions incorporated in Code Compare tool. This function uses all the features native to two-way file comparison processing three files at once. The main goal is comparing one base file with two of its editions. Highly-customizable GUI and one-click operation make three-way merge an ultimately convenient solution for team projects.
From now on even if you don't use any version control systems, the extensive functionality of Code Compare can come in handy when you need to compare and merge entire folders. This application is very useful for detecting changes in different versions of source code or web pages.
- Version Control Integration
Code Compare can be seamlessly integrated into any version control system, supporting external comparators, including SVN, TFS and Mercurial systems. This way you can easily track changes gradually implemented into your project files over time.
