Hi all,

I'm working on a project that will involve comparison and synchroniziation
of two lists, with the need to see the details of each list item as part of
the comparison. The most obvious examples out there are various flavors of
file directory compare tools, but the interfaces to these seem to be
uniformly crappy. I'm wondering if the collective wisdom here could point me
to some good examples.

Thanks in advance,
Michael Moore

Visual SlickEdit is the tool I use for all diff type functions.

The above is my favorite. Right click to everything you need.

Although, you need a repository to plug into and not every host supports
that and no Mac version.

I agree on the crap factor, I just recently used a plethora of merge compare
tools for mac and pc. garbage..

Yes, I was thinking of something more like that than a diff program. I'll
probably need to link that kind of a side-by-side display with a list that
allows the user to see progress and go back or randomly move among the
items.
Thanks for the suggestion.
