It is not uncommon for bloated and unmanageable code to rise as it goes on, even if you don't help with coding. In some cases, you may obtain a client file that was outsourced and find out specifications weren't followed, or that someone didn't know what they were doing. I find it very hard to believe someone else actually "broke" my code, and now you've got to figure out what the issue is and how you can solve it again.
Code Compare was made for exactly this sort of situation. Getting through hundreds of thousands of lines of code has far more to do than just provide a small distraction, attempting to find out where a quotation mark or line was previously inserted.
Comparing code by contrast, rather than by folder, is best, in that you can easily discern the differences between different files.
With a variety of options available, you can readily tell Code Compare to ignore certain elements like extra white space and look specifically for the things that matter. It is also possible to compare by line, word, and symbol. Making it easy for you to choose what issue has come up, this section will highlight the differences you may encounter.
In addition, it can also break up all of the contiguous code regions so that areas of the code are addressed.
It has point-If you click merge, you can make any changes while you're away, removing any hurdles that might prevent your focus from achieving anything. To better prepare for merging, you can develop your own shortcuts if you have a particular level of expertise.
When a team has to deal with comments, they can leave comments. As a programmer, you can leave notes in designated areas so that you can check if your work has changed in that area. It makes it easier to communicate since you can easily highlight areas that need attention or review quickly.
There may even be one or three panes of windows per time. There is no conflict that needs to be resolved, so changes can be automatically merged. Code Compare will highlight conflicts if they have occurred. Using a mouse, you can solve them instantly.
The comparison allows users to compare items within folders, as well as filtering if certain files are not included in the group.
The code matching features in Code Compare are accessible through TFS, SVN, Git, Mercurial and Perforce. As long as external comparators are used for reference, it has a very simple user interface.
Having a software dream come true in Code Compare is no easy feat.
