    There are comm, join, uniq, diff, sort, grep etc commands available for text-processing (visit man page for more detail). – Pandya Aug 13 '14 at 10:28

You can still use Beyond Compare on Linux, they have a linux port.

Go to http://www.scootersoftware.com/download.php and download one of the debian packages.


fldiff might be what you search. It's in the offical repositories. Install it with:

sudo apt-get install fldiff

Another one is diffuse:

sudo apt-get install diffuse
