Used to exotic tools like source in sight and araxis Merge. Now working for a smaller company, so don't want to drain their resources. Looking for some free/open source editor(cross referencing/indexing is very important) and merge tool with decent GUI. Going back to VIM and ctags just like college is an option too, but would love some GUI. I see a lot of options but looking for some suggestions from people here.

    P4merge works the best. I've used meld and intellij tools as well. I like p4merge. Free to download, easy to configure

      Does it do directory comparisons?

      I don't think it does.

    I have used Meld on Ubuntu. Works pretty good as a diff tool. Although thh, araxis has spoiled us :-)

      True. That's what I am thinking to use. What's your source code editor?

      I am actually used to SlickEdit. They have one for Linux but it costs money
