Kdiff3 For Mac

Kdiff3 For Mac

KDiff3 just needs a method to detect, which lines belong to one history entry. Most VCS insert an empty line after each history entry. If there are no other empty lines, this is a sufficient criterion for KDiff3. Just set an empty 'History entry start regular expression'. If the empty line criterion isn't sufficient, you can specify a regular. KDiff3 can do two-way and three-way merges, has a decent GUI and has some pretty powerful features to assist with the merge. My favorite non-free, but inexpensive ($30-ish) solution for merging the contents of files is Beyond Compare 3.
