The TLIB for Windows built-in visual compare can be used to show the differences between two disk files or between two versions of a single file. It is also available at the click of a button while you enter the comments for a new version, during an Update (check-in), to show the differences between the new version and its predecessor. This feature is available regardless of whether you are running TLIB for Windows directly or via a TLIB Version Control for Windows Add-In. Unlike most compare programs, TLIB shows you what has changed within the lines, as well as identifying which lines have changed.
In the example shown above, you can see that old line 20 has been deleted, and old line 21 (new line 20) has been commented-out. Also, the two "AddEntry" statements have been changed, and the indentation of the "If" blocks has been corrected.
Note also that lines 16-19 are unchanged, but are nevertheless shown as "context." The amount of context shown (as well as various other options) can be adjusted by clicking on the Options button.
