Hi, sometimes I find the same cs files names or the source is updated in various places and I don't know if the code is old or new, or the same.

Anyone recommend me a good free program  they use to compare code.

We usually use the compare-method of tfs (team foundation server), because all our sources are in change-control

A free tool that you can use: notepad++ (http://sourceforge.net/projects/notepad-plus/)
