since moving to the mac, the one (well there are two realy) tool I’ve been missing has been a strong compare tool for text files. Namely code. SVN has a good compare but sometimes when I’m moving files around, I want to make sure I’m not overwriting new with old and stuff. Plus sometimes I’d like to compare against a copy I got from someone else, etc.
Enter Araxis Merge, in my opinion a must have tool! Argent bought all the devs a copy, and there was peave and happiness in dev land. No more losing changes when sharing files with each other and stuff.
As long as I ran Parallels I had Araxis and have in some occassions copied files into Windows only to compare them and then return to OS X. Well not any more!
I’ve long lamented, googled, pleaded, even prayed to obscure gods for a mac version. Well Some one heard me. They’ve got an early release download!!! Yippy skippy!!!
If you’re not familiar with Merge, check it out, it’s a great app.
