Hi everyone, im seeking to replace my difference engine for my online version system. It is old and dusty and im pretty sure that its way to complicated.

Basically its purpose is to compare two files to show the difference between them, very similar to winmerge but in php. In the software you click a radio button of the two versions you wish to compare and it will return the result in a file view with differences indicated.

i was checking this out today, its bare bones but its a start.

i going to build alittle mock up of that and do some testing. I just wanted to check to see if anyone had any other recommendations before i make my final decision on which to use. Im sure there are some other ones out there.


UPDATE: here is another i found that seems to be quite nice. http://scrivna.com/demos/filediff/code.html
