Can I compare 2 files?

I love the product but I was trying to figure out if V has a method for allowing me to compare two files?

Can I compare 2 files?

You can use the MD5/CRC32 option on the Tools menu to display the MD5 of the 2 files. If the 2 MD5 are different, then so are the 2 files.

This is a very quick way of seeing if the 2 files are different. However, this probably isn't what you want.

I use the Open Source WinMerge for file comparison: https://oddslot.co.uk/

You can then create a User Command in V to call WinMerge to compare 2 files (or 2 directories).

Charles.
