Unfortunately no, but there are many good diff tools out there. Personally I use Beyond Compare, because it includes a very good tool for comparing two images, and I like how its text compare works:

You can also use the built-in diff / merge tools shipped with Visual Studio which is pretty good too. He's the one invoked by default when you use built-in git or team explorer features.

There's also some VS addons which add options in the context menu to compare 2 files in the solution.

And you can also invoke it through command line (or as settings in Tortoise Svn / Git for example):
devenv.exe /diff %base %mine %bname %yname

Query: for those who've tried both Beyond Compare (<3) and Araxis - why do you prefer Araxis?

I have never used Araxis, but at the time I started using Beyond Compare, it was the only diff program I found that let me compare two images, pixel by pixel, but also allowed the images to be different sizes. So when comparing a reference screen shot to a full screen shot, I could move the reference screen shot to the part of the image I needed to compare. A very specific use case that other image diff programs did not support.

Sometimes it works like this, there is one specific "small" feature you rely on in a tool, and unless another tool has that specific feature you cannot really move over to it.

Recently I found great file compare tool. It is Code Compare https://www.devart.com/codecompare/file-comparison.html This file comparison tool that allows you to compare, diff and merge text files or folders. It can recognize basic code structure in various languages (namely C#, C++, JavaScript, Java, Visual Basic). Very comfortable!
