It would be nice if WinMerge could handle comparisons of large files. When I try to compare to 500 MB files on a 16 GB 64-bit Win 7 machine, I get "out of memory". This does not seem reasonable.

Ideally, I'd like to be able to compare files of unlimited length (even >2 GB), which could be done in parts (i e, read the 1st GB of each file, compare as if this were the entire file, and repeat), but at least WinMerge should be capable of dealing with files which fit into memory.
