WinMerge\readme.txt Source code for the WinMerge program, its plugins, filters, setup program, and various utilities are all kept in the WinMerge module directory, in various subdirectories. Generally, look for a file "readme.txt" to explain the purpose of a directory, and a file "Changes.txt" to hold the historical changelog; sometimes the "Changes.txt" file is located at a higher level -- eg, the WinMerge\Src\Changes.txt includes all changes to all subdirectories located under WinMerge\Src. Subdirectories include: - Docs both user and developer documentation, in different subdirectories - Src source code to the WinMerge program itself - Plugins source code and binaries for WinMerge runtime plugin dlls & scripts - Filters WinMerge file filters which are shipped with the distribution - ArchiveSupport source code for the Merge7z dlls, which connect WinMerge with 7-Zip Also this directory is required to compile WinMerge(U).exe.
