I guess you would have to have used the BBEdit file differences tool
to appreciate how useful it is. Many times, I find myself trying to
adjudicate differences between two text files (say a weblog config
file on my server with a new config file included in an updated of the
blog software), etc. This is when I need to call on BBEdit. I haven't
tried File Merge.
