    I’m currently trying to manage our legacy code written in Hp/HT Basic and I haven’t found any diff tools that will play nice with a .prg file other than displaying in hex. Has anyone here had any luck with any diff tools? Thanks in advance.

    Hi, do you try Beyond Compare from Scooter software ?
    Work great if you copy-paste the HTBasic code with text format choice

    Hey ZeRider,

    I figured out you can save it as a .BAS file type and it can use the git diff tool that comes with git to compare files. Thanks for the reply!

    One option is to add the following two lines two your source.

    ! RE-STORE “C:\PATH\MYPROG” ! Save prog version
    ! RE-SAVE “C:\PATH\MYPROG.txt” ! Save ASCII text version

    Then when you make a modification to your code you can also highlight and execute the re-save line. Then in git you can track the changes that happen in the ascii version when you check it into the repository.
