Please don't forget the Windows diff tools.

For example:

* WinMerge (http://winmerge.sourceforge.net/)
A free, open-source diff/merge tool based on GNU diff code.

* CSDiff (http://www.componentsoftware.com/products/csdiff/index.htm)
The diff tool from Component Software.

* Araxis Diff (http://www.araxis.com/merge/)
A commercial diff/merge tool which even support 3-way diffs.

In my oppinion the most powerfull is Araxis merge.
The commandline syntax for Araxis merge is:

compare [/? | /h] [/wait] [/aN] [/swap] [/max]
[[/titleN:"<NthFileTitle>"]...] [/2 | /3] <firstFile> <secondFile>
[<thirdFile>] [<mergedOutputFile>]

Ciao, Olli
