Hacking on a number of projects, in particular I want to compile the
Hessling editor (THE) as the dev has gone a bit quiet. It's a very good
clone of the IBM mainframe Xedit editor and I use it all the time.
There's a few bugfixes and easy changes I'd like to make, but I can't get it
Then I'd start looking at kdiff3, winmerge + tmerge and see what strikes me
- for my purposes most of the time TMerge is too focused on version control
- doing exactly what it's supposed to, but I more often need a more general
purpose tool. Things like comparing program output, looking for similar bits
of code in programs etc - sort of code archaeology in a way.
Anyhow I'd be amazed if my problems compiling wasn't my lack of knowledge. I
tend to assume I'm the problem until I'm confident with the tools - and it's
still quite likely.
I'd prefer to use gcc, because I have it installed (and cygwin), I could use
the VC++ toolkit but I haven't managed to download the SDK through our

I've never used the d'n'd features, I normally use 'send to' on at least one
of the files. I suppose it might come in handy one day.
