Being from a mostly UNIX background, I would use one of the diff utilities.  Although they do not come with Windows, you can download a large number of UNIX commands that will run in command line windows from here:


Once downloaded and unzipped, you can use diff to compare 2 files.
There are plenty of tools available online for comparing and merging.

The tool that i use is beyondcompare.


For a Windows environment, you might look at WinMerge... free, open source, graphically highlights differences, etc.

See http://winmerge.org

Very handy tool with a really hard to beat price!
