Hello, This may be just an incorrect use of WinMerge but the first test
below is certainly confusing.
I've just downloaded and installed WinMerge. I tried in on one of my
'c' files and a previous version of same.
Work just fine. Nice tool. I then tried it out on two very small binary
files each containing the same data: 5 hex bytes:
31 32 34 35 00. WinMerge message: "Binary files are different" was
displayed. Both windows showed: 1 2 3 4 (and a square symbol).
I then compared two small 5 byte files containing the same data: hex
bytes: 01 02 03 04 05. This produced the message:
"Binary files cannot be visually compared" and no indication that they
were identical. I then changed one byte in one of these
files and re-compared them. This produced the same message with no
indication that the files contained different data.
I certainly would not use this tool visually compare of binary files but
I wanted to check it on binary files since dir compares
would in most cases involve compare of binary files.
Thank you, A very nice diff tool.
