Unusably slow for CSV files

Negative Review by dandv
about Meld 1 hour ago

For CSV files that differ by something simple in each line, like the date format being YYYY-MM-DD vs. MM/DD/YYYY, Meld is extremely slow. It takes MINUTES (or hours, who knows, I quit it after 5 minutes) to highlight the inline difference. I've filed a bug against this in their Bugzilla - let's hope the developer fixes it.

By comparison (no pun intended), the CompareIt tool (2009, Windows only, www.grigsoft.com/wincmp3.htm ) is 25 times faster.

This program is amazing. I'm using it with my backups compare and via not-known git friends. Really useful. Easy to patch files to files , line by line, change to change. It is also so soft to use (Windows 10). You should give it a try

about Meld and Araxis Merge Oct 2015

Have used Araxis Merge for years at my work place.. However, was pleased to see Meld Merge when I installed Linux Mint. Also, had come to discover that Meld is also available for Windows. Was a bit saddened to read that Meld Merge for Windows has been stopped in Development as of July 2015.
