Beyond Compare is a commercial, cross-platform and full featured graphical software that provides a file compare and directory synchronization utility for GNU/Linux, Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems.
Quickly compare any types of files
The software has been designed to allow users to easily and quickly compare any type of files, including text documents, images, MP3s, HEX data, or entire drives. It even supports folder comparison operations and can compare Adobe PDF (.pdf) and Microsoft Word (.doc) files.
Features powerful commands
Beyond Compare features powerful commands that allow you to ignore the differences you’re not interesting in and focus only on the ones you really want to view, merge changes, generate reports, as well as to synchronize your files across multiple devices.
Compare entire drives
With Beyond Compare, you will be able to quickly compare entire drives, directories and folders, check modified times and file sizes, integrate zip archives and FTP sites seamlessly, as well as to use byte-by-byte comparisons.
It is an intelligent application
Beyond Compare is an intelligent application that will automatically choose the best way to compare files and folders, displaying the results in the format you want. It allows you to view and edit text files with syntax highlighting, using comparison rules that have been created specifically for documents, HTML and source code.
Supports a wide range of Linux distributions
Beyond Compare supports a wide range of Linux distributions, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Ubuntu, Fedora, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, openSUSE, Debian GNU/Linux, Mageia, Linux Mint, and any other DEB- or RPM-based operating system.
Runs on 32-bit and 64-bit platforms
Both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures are supported, but keep in mind that the latter requires 32-bit compatibility libraries, which will be installed automatically if you use the default package manager of your Linux distribution.
