  • kdiff3

    KDiff3 is a file and directory diff and merge tool which compares and merges two or three text input files or directories, shows the differences line by line and character by character, provides an automatic merge-facility, has an editor for comfortable solving of merge-conflicts, provides networktransparency via KIO, has options to highlight or hide changes in white-space or comments, supports Unicode, UTF-8 and other file encodings, prints differences, supports version control keyword and...

    • As BC and unlike Meld, it align changes by adding lines, which is a key feature to visually compare code. Meld explicitly states it does not do that. kdiff3 also supports multiple platforms (as stated). Unfortunately, it does not support on-click line/block merging (merge from side to side visually) like Meld or BC. Guest • Jan 2017 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • I would like to suggest kdiff3 as the best alternative selection for Beyond compare, esp. folder compare and sync! Guest • Feb 2016 • 0 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
