Meld: diff and merge files

Diff tools are very useful to identify changes in file versions (CVS, subversion). There are some command line tools such as diff and diff3 that compare two or three files, line per line, returning those that present differences. However, in some cases, a visual tool that highlight the differences could be more effective. Meld aims to handle this issue. It can be used not only to compare files but also to compare folders, to find files that exists in one and doesn’t in other. It can be installed through apt-get tools:

sudo apt-get install meld
