Try any "diff" and/or "merge" tool out there that you're most comfortable with.

On Windows you can try Winmerge or BeyondCompare or IDM UltraCompare or Araxis Merge if your on Windows.

On linux and friends you can use the command diff or graphical ones.

On Mac OS X you can try Kaleidoscope or UltraCompare or Araxis Merge or even XCode which comes with FileMerge.

You also can use many various online diff and merge tools.

Most version control GUI software, like tortoisegit and tortoisesvn also come with a diff/merge tool.

Most decent code editors have a diff tool, e.g. Notepad++ or Sublime Text 2. – DisgruntledGoat Aug 3 '12 at 11:10
