xdiff (version 3.4)

xdiff is a graphical utility for viewing the differences of a file and up to four revisions of that file. The text of the files is presented side by side with their differences aligned and highlighted in colour for easy identification. xdiff can be used to produce a merged version combining none, some or all of the differences. Simple editing features are also provided.
