Diff (File) (Command Line)
Shows the differences between the local copy of a file and the master copy in the database. This command also shows the differences between two versions of the same file. For definitions of the command options, seein this Help system.
For binary files, Visual SourceSafe can tell you if two files are different, but not how they are different. The binary record stored for a file cannot be displayed. Only ASCII text files can be compared line-by-line.
