Review of Software Utilities
- Compare It! - superior
File Comparison utility. It displays files side by side, hiliting
the lines deleted/added/changed and allows to
copy changes into clipboard.
Some other utilities I've seen get confused when several lines are different -
and end up reporting the rest of the file as modified.
This program really excel at keeping track of modifications - since I started
using it, I didn't get a single false alarm!
- FAR - File Manager from heaven.
Looks surprisingly like Norton Commander, but is much more powerful.
One of it's best features is ability to display FTP sites and compressed files
- FlexTouch - little util
that allows to control minimized Winamp.
This is much more useful than it sounds - it allows me to pause song, skip
to next track or change volume without shuffling thru the windows and losing
my train of thought. Give it a try!
- LviewPro - fast and
powerful image viewer. After version 2.x it became a full-fledged graphics editor -
which was a bit of overkill for me, so I stayed with
good old release 1.D2.
- Pink Mouse Image Organizer - excellent tool for making picture
galleries. This program creates thumbnails from pics in specified directory and then generates
HTML page. Recommended!
- SpaceWatch - indispensable tool for cleaning up the hard drive.
It shows you which directories take up the most space, so you can look at them first
instead of spending long time deleting small ones.
