    Meld is an awesome tool. There are times when you want to check the difference between two or three files and merge only some parts, it does a great job. You can also compare directories and copy only what you want.

    Another tool I always have installed is regexxer, which seems to be unmaintained, unfortunately, but still works great on Debian. It is a search and replace tool, but instead of the usual sed, you watch each file and decide which replacements to perform.

      Congrats! One of the best tools in the OSS world.
      In may ways, far better than comparable proprietary tools.

        Agreed, though we're stuck with quite an old version on most of our machines at work, since it won't run on CentOS 5 without upgrading a bunch of system libraries.

            Is they any qt alternative to it? Or need I add meld ignore pkg - I will not install gtk3 only for one app, on my desktop I use only gtk2 and qt apps.

              How come? I mean, sure, it might be for just one app, but is your system so constrained that the need to install a few extra packages is enough to prevent you from using a valuable development tool?

                I actually managed to get new(er) version of meld by installing it manually.
                Don't remember the exact version, though.

                    It's like a phobia. Some people get goosebumps when they see the number or type of packages some apps depend on. It doesn't matter if their size is less than an mp3 song.
