Hi Merlijn;

Thanks for writing and for your support of BBEdit.

In the current release of BBEdit, please refer to the Search -> Compare Against Disk File command.

I hope this helps, but as always please do not hesitate to write if we can be of any other assistance.

Regards,
etc
` I checked BBedit v8.0. The feature they pointed me to, isn't coming close to what I mean. They didn't get the point. I'm working on a reply to Barebones.
