Manual alignment

Comment by thdox

Diffuse is the only open source linux application that enables manual alignment. kdiff3 has the functionality, but it is less ergonomic.

what do you call manual alignment? in linux i use vimdiff or meld. i'm starting to use diffuse when i'm in windows and missing meld.

On a long text file, with redundant text, the tool is lost.
Diffuse enables you to tell that line 123 of file 1 must be aligned with line 153 of file 2, and then relaunch the comparison

The only native Linux tool I've found to diff in under one second two CSV files that only differ in the date format. See https://sourceforge.net/p/kdiff3/bugs/217/ for details.
