Is there a tool that from within a Visual Studio 2008/.Net C# application that can compare two files and return the differences (modified, new, and deleted lines) back to the application for screen display and output to  file?

Try ComparisonTools (http://comparisontools.codeplex.com) with WinMerge (http://winmerge.org)

However, if you use any kind of source control tool (Mercurial, Git, Subversion) they usually provide this behaviour for you with built in tools.

Good Luck!

You can install this add-on which comes with "Super Diff".

Are you asking for an IDE add-on, or a library you can reference from within your application's code to do a diff on two files?
