This message tells the WinMerge has detected (any of the) files being a
binary file. In practice WinMerge looks for zero bytes in the files.
So you must have zero bytes in your text files somewhere. You can fix
your files by opening them to some text/hex editor and replace those
zero-value bytes with some other characters, e.g. spaces.
Also, latest stable WinMerge versions (2.10.x) can show the files in hex
format and allow replacing those zeroes with other chars.
