Code Compare

Code Compare is a tool to compare and merge differing files and folders. It takes into account the specificity of programming languages and can be used both as a Visual Studio add-in and as a standalone application.

  1. Manually re-align compare points

    Sometimes even the best automatic diff tool will match against the wrong lines. Some other diff programs offer a way to manually re-align these lines. It would be good if Code Compare introduced this feature too.

  2. Implement "Undo Unchanged Files" feature for TFS for any folder in pending changes.

    Implement "Undo Unchanged Files" feature for any folder in pending changes.
    For TFS this will be brilliant feature because there is no good tool/extension to do so.
    Especially it is useful when baseless merge is performed.
    Thanks in advance.

  3. Make the base pane read-only

    When comparing a file against its base in version control, it makes sense for the base pane to be read-only. This way it makes it obvious which file is editable. Same with merging - the mine and theirs should be read-only and only the result file should be editable.

  5. "Ignore comments" option in folder compares

    Here is one obvious use case that's impacting me now. I'm comparing two versions of a software package (the older version has changes I made). But the newer version has an updated license text at the top of each .cs file, so every file is marked as changed, making the folder compare useless in this case.

  8. Stacked Current Line View

    Add another display that shows the currently selected line from each document above each other. It allows one to quickly see differences in the currently selected line that might ordinarily be difficult to see. You also have to do less horizontal scrolling with long lines this way.

  10. Add structural source code comparison for Delphi / Object Pascal

    Currently there exists (as far as I know) only one small tool, which provides structural code comparison for Delphi, but it has not nearly as many functions as Code Compare.
    So you would have a unique selling proposition for users of Delphi. Especially in comparison to BeyondCompare, which is delivered with Delphi as a lite version.

  13. Other, Base, Local 3-way diff

    Make it possible to use all Other, Local and Base versions of file for merging like it is implemented in kdiff3. It is helps in complex cases when Other version has changed a logic of code.

  14. Merge for sln, project files based on an xml merge

    There is a tool that can merge sln Files, something similar should be possible for code Compare.
    If it code compare supports good xml merge this can be solved there

  19. Indication of difference between files without comparing each one individually

    During folder comparison you're shown a list of all files (which ones are new, missing, different, same). If, from this view, I could see an indication of *HOW* different they are. I would like to quickly, at a glance, see "this file has been slightly altered" or "this file was completely rewritten." Again, the idea being quickly, without individually comparing each file (for large directories, this is quite time consuming).

    This could be simply "Number of Lines Changed" or "Percentage of Lines Changed" or a little bar graph in between each differing file. Just a quick, way to get a…
