Press Release Summary: The Complete Utility for Folder and File Compare and Merge/Synchronization.
Press Release Body: Oorja Software has released SwiftCompare v. 1.3, a powerful Windows application that lets you visually compare, merge, and synchronize files and folders. Unlike simple file synchronization utilities, SwiftCompare has a fully customizable compare and merge engine that can be used by programmers to compare source code files, by business people who need to update their desktop computers with their laptop data after business trips, and by anybody who needs to ensure that they can immediately identify and locate the latest versions of their files and folders.
When comparing files, SwiftCompare lets you define exactly what you\'re looking for. Software developers can tell the program to ignore such things as source code comments, and leading and trailing blocks of spaces. The built-in right-click menu even lets you perform instant file and folder operations such as copy, move, delete, and rename.
SwiftCompare offers the same power and flexibility when comparing and synchronizing folders. The program can pay attention to, or ignore, such things as the date and time the files were modified, the contents of the files, and their size. The program can even deal with the time incompatibilities between FAT and NTFS files.
While power-users are able to completely customize their file and folder management, inexperienced users can take advantage of the program\'s one-click solutions to ensuring that files and folders are in sync. For example, the \"sync both folders\" option will examine all files in both locations, and ensure that the latest versions of everything are placed in both folders. The program can be set to perform backups of both folders before any synchronization and merge operation, so there\'s never a worry about losing valuable files.
Software developers often need to track modifications and roll back bad changes that they\'ve made to their source code. With SwiftCompare, it\'s easy to ignore unimportant differences such as comments and whitespaces, and concentrate on the real changes. SwiftCompare\'s built-in text editor features syntax highlighting. The visual diff viewer gives you a summary of all of the differences between two files. The program offers complete support for Unicode and multi-byte character sets. Windows, Macintosh, and UNIX files are supported.
SwiftCompare eliminates the popular file-updating technique of throwing your hands into the air, and starting over with the old version of a document. Whether you\'re a programmer who is working on a complex change to a large program, a business person who needs to ensure that the latest contract is properly worded, or a student who needs to synchronize project notes and report drafts, SwiftCompare has the tools that you need.
