Main menu - File - Compare files...

After activating the menu item "File → Compare files..." or the shortcut "Ctrl+Alt+V" the content of two selected text files is compared. These selected files may be contained in the same panel, or in two different panels.

Which text files are to be compared

Which comparison program compares the two text files

The content of two text files can be compared only if under the menu item "Tools → Settings → Programs" in the tab "Compare files" a comparison program is defined (with a filter suitable for the two text files).

Execution of the comparison

FreeCommander calls the determined external comparison program with the parameters "text file1" and "text file2". The execution of the comparison depends on the external comparison program.
