I'm searching a GUI [or CLI] tool that can produce output like the Total Commander compare content function does! For example:

Screenshot of Total Commander

Are there any that do that? It's a very handy tool and I miss it

  • xxdiff
  • gtkdiff
  • tkdiff

come to my mind.


diff -y?

Or if what you're really after is color output try colordiff.


Any diff utility can do this for you. My personal favorite GUI tool is meld.

If you like the command line, but want a paged side-by-side comparison, try:

diff -y | less
