Compare++ is a software application which enables you to compare different versions of your source code, be it written in C, C++, Java, C#, JavaScript or CSS, take snapshots of the screen and take advantage of a three-way merge view.

Simple-to-handle environment

The installation process is over in a jiffy, while you are met with a pretty well-organized and clean interface. It is comprised of a menu bar, a toolbar, a few buttons and a pane in which to view the information you want.

Extensive and well-drawn Help contents are provided in an online setting, and therefore enables you to easily find your way around it, even if you do not possess a great deal of knowledge pertaining to the IT world.

Multi-task and compare two folders

First and foremost, you should know that this program encloses a multi-tabbed environment, which means that you can easily perform multiple operations in the same time. In the main window it is possible to view a history of all past comparisons, in a folder structure.

It is possible to compare any two directories from your hard drive using two side-by-side panels, in which you can view all contained files and information regarding them such as name, extension, size and last modified time.

Compare two or three files, and take snapshots

Moreover, you can take advantage of a visual language-aware comparison feature, so that you can view the differences between two C, C++, C#, Java, CSS or JavaScript files. A three-way merge tool is also available, and you can join the files in different manners and save them to a custom location on the hard drive with ease.

Last but not least, you can take a screenshot of a selected window, as well as the entire screen or just part of it, with just a click of the button, change the app’s look and take advantage of some of the samples provided by the developers.

A last evaluation

It does not put a strain on the computer’s performance, as it does not require a large amount of resources, while the response time is quite good.

All things considered, Compare++ is a pretty efficient piece of software, dedicated to all types of users. However, you should know that in our tests, on a Windows 8.1 64-bit operating system, the product crashed a few times, when trying to upload files.
