Default Comparing Files...

For those like me who not only have trouble typing the code in the book, but re-reading what has been typed(!) in order to find out why some code does not work, I have found what I think to be an excellent, freeware, file comparison tool. It allows you to compare two files, or two folders full of files, and see the differences. Hence you can compare what you have typed in with the supplied 'code from the book.'

It is a great help when you cannot see the difference between something like GetRecordset() and GetRecordSet() within a page of code.

It is called 'Files Comparer' by Stas Semenov of www.script-debugger.com. Although I have not found it on the website, it is readily available through Google, etc.

Hope it helps others. (BTW, it has nothing to do with me and I know that there are lots of other file comparison tools about, but this one fits my requirement.)
