Compare documents

I wonder if it might be possible to add a feature to DT that would allow me to compare two text files (each in its own window) by highlighting the differences? This would be a great help in keeping track of changes in, say, an article as it develops.

The old Nisus had a macro which would do this, and I know that BBEdit and TextWrangler do it, but for one function such as this I’d rather not pay for those entire applications. Within DT I believe that this would be a useful addition.

Thanks for considering it.

Thanks for the suggestion.

But although this should be of course possible, it’s unlikely that there’s a common need for such a command (as we’re always trying to figure out which requests might be of common interest to avoid adding to many commands not useful for many users).
