    you may want to use thoses flag’s for text file

    -a = Specify the content in the file is text
    -y = Specify to show the output in 2 colomns

    as by ex ;

    diff -a -y a.txt b.txt

    If one wants a visual tool, try DiffMerge (https://sourcegear.com/diffmerge).
    Not the best in the world, but it’s free at least and does the job.

    On Windows, forget everything and just use WinMerge, the best one for ages IMO.

    Kaleidoscope is a brilliant gui tool.
    It compares text files, images and folders.
