question for linux users - SOLVED!

What if anything do you use to compare 2 or more configs? I've used software called HyperConf (awesome program) under windows but it will not install into Ubuntu(yea I tried wine). it displays 2 configs side by side and will show differences with color, different colors mean different things. Its very simple, and I use it at work pretty regularly, however I'm a linux user outside the office and want something similar for my Ubuntu laptop.

Any comments are welcome, thank you all

Meld Diff Viewer is a very popular graphical diff program. You can compare 2 or 3 files. After installation (sudo apt-get install meld), you can run the viewer from CLI (meld &) or find it under Applications->Programming->Meld Diff Viewer.

Re: question for linux users

Richard,

Check out diff for comparing 2 files and diff3 for comparing three files. They are standard command line tools. I'm not sure how you install things  in Ubuntu, but I think it is apt-get install. So, if you don't have diff, try

sudo apt-get install diff.

Let me know if that helps.

Cheers,


Conor

Re: question for linux users

Diff is what I've found so far and I've found it to be lacking based on the format of the output. I'm installing Meld Diff.
