"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You could use Git natively or an implementation of Git in Powershell

"Compare" is a funny word, because it means different things for different applications.

But at the most basic, you can use compare-object.

$file1 = gc file1.csv
$file2 = gc file2.csv
compare-object $file1 $file2
