is there an option that will allow me to display side by side two versions of the same source, with the matching lines optionally folded and the added/deleted/revised lines highlighted ?
thanks in advance :-)
the diff feature is not implemented in Notepad++.
you can go to the plugin forum to do your request.
Note that even if you post your request there - there are many other free (and even OpenSource) tools that does just that. And nobody wants to "reinvent the wheel".
My favorite is WinMerge, you can find it here: http://winmerge.sourceforge.net/
I also recommend (and use) WinMerge :
I suggest you to use Beyond Compare
Thanks for the alternative recommendations and links!
It still would be cool if N++ had a diff / file compare plugin option though. Any brilliant people out there who know how to tweak an existing ap and turn it into a N++ plugin or function?
