TextWrangler is a "Free" download, so give it a try. If TextWrangler does not work for you, please tell use what kind of files they are, and maybe there is another difference tool available. Page content loaded.

This application expects that you have installed the optional Xcode, which contains Filemerge. Specifying opendiff file1 file2 in the Terminal will then launch the graphical Filemerge application with each file in its own sub-window, with graphics connecting where differences occur.

Jun 20, PM. Question: Q: Compare two files More Less. For our purposes here of finding and comparing differences in two files, the free version of BBEdit will get the job done. You can compare differences in any compatible text files side-by-side with BBEdit using this approach.

Ah, I see that Beyond Compare will do this nicely. I went to their site and I can only download the trial version. Looking at the about screen, my copy is good for 30 days. BBedit remains free after the 30 day limit has expired, but it has a somewhat limited feature-set compared to the full version that is paid for. At the end of the evaluation period, you can continue to use BBEdit for free, forever, with no nag screens or unsolicited interruptions.
In the best tradition of TextWrangler, using BBEdit in free mode costs you nothing, while providing an upgrade path to advanced features and capabilities. Imagine reading through a large snippet with all that. They will make it a paid upgrade anyway, so why should they care?
