Now I'm in process of contract negotiation with a private company. They sending me the contract, I'm making some changes and then sending back to them for verification. Now they asking me to explain every change I done, but I can't remember them all. MSWord's diff tool is displaying too many useless changes, and I can't "ignore" some of them manually.

I guess I need something similar to KDiff tool, but with these extra features:

  • the ability to comment some differences between 2 versions of a text file.
  • the ability to ignore some non-significant differences (for example, changing hyphen into dash, or removing multiple spaces)
  • the ability to create an HTML or PDF report with explanations about changes.

Can you recommend some tool for my task? (freeware is preferred)

SmartBear CodeCollaborator does that stuff, but it's not free. However, they've occasionally offered specials for a limited 5-user version of CodeReviewer for as little as $5.
