I need to compare two documents for common sentences and phrases. I cannot, however, find a tool that does this, and I have tried so many at this point: Word, Acrobat Pro, Araxis Merge, BeyondCompare, WinMerge, commandline tools, and others. I am certain I must be missing something super basic in this quest, so I'm really hoping someone here can help. My goals for this effort are as follows:
- Tool must work with at least two plain text files
- It must be able to compare them and return a list of common sentences, paragraphs, and phrases (this could be a manner of highlighting duplicated content or actually returning a list of common content)
If there is a way to do this with standard diff tools by reframing the diff command, that would be perfect, too.
