Susie, I am not an Eclipse user and so do not know if there is an appropriate tool in the Eclipse JDK. If I were to undertake this problem myself I would consider making a small application to check Strings against each other which can easily be done using java. I would copy both of the areas of your screen into separate .txt files and save them, then get the application to take each line or block of text in one file and compare it with the other. You could write it to output whatever differences it finds or on which line. Hope this helps Roger ----- Original Message ----- From: Stanzel, Susan - FSA, Kansas City, MO To: program-java@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Tuesday, March 25, 2014 3:14 PM Subject: [program-java] comparing files in eclipse Good morning Everyone, When we are doing a code review before committing code to the repository the sighted person has new code on one side of the screen and code which is in the repository on the other side of the screen. It is very very easy to see visually what changes have been made. What is the very easiest way for me to accomplish the same type of review? As always, I hate to ask for sighted assistance, but in this case I am feeling the amount of time spent on something which would take a sighted person minimal time to do might not be warranted. Do any of you have thoughts to add to this type of question? Susie Stanzel This electronic message contains information generated by the USDA solely for the intended recipients.
