File Comparison Tool for Ubuntu
I have been using Beyond Compare to compare file in Windows. Beyond Comparison is an amazing file comparison tool. I uses Meld when I am working in Ubuntu.
1. Install meld by typing the following command in your console :
sudo apt-get install meld
2. You can access meld through ‘Applications > Programming > Meld‘
3. Create a new project by clicking the ‘New‘ icon.
4. Click on the ‘Directory Comparison‘ to compare directories.
specify the 2 directories that you want to compare. Meld will automatically compare the directories after your click ‘ok’
I usually click on the ‘Modified’ button to show those files that has differences.
You can view the file differences by double clicking on the file name. I simply Click on the left or right black arrow to move the changes into a file.
Meld is a great file comparison tool. I am always looking for better software to do my work. What is your experience with Meld ? Do you find there is a better file comparison tool ? Let me know if you know some.
