FileMerge - Needs UNIX line termination
Authored by: phredator on Jun 05, '03 01:17:38PM

I tried FM after it attained prestigious HOTW status, and I really liked the way it presented file compare info (much more elegant than anything else I'd seen). I resolved to use it for actionscript comparisons, and the first time it gave totally bogus results! I was bummed because I had already become attached. It turns out that the file has to have UNIX line termination, then it works well (I use BBedit light to fix the line ends), though, fixing the line ends is a hassle.

Seems to compare folders OK, but the display isn't as intuitive. I haven't ever tried synching with it, so I don't know about it trashing stuff.
