code diff tool

What do people like for a code comparison (diff) tool ?

I've been using Beyond Compare but perhaps there is better.

I am on Subversion.

The upcoming version 3 supports 3-way-merge. I'm beta testing BC and I'm
very happy with that in conjunction with Tortoise.

Cheers,

I'll second that vote for WinMerge. Fabulous tool, and open source,
too!

Araxis Merge is an excellent diff/merge tool, and integrates with SVN
directly (i.e. can compare and merge files and folder hierarchies
directly inside SVN repositories):

It's rather costly, though.

If you're already using Subversion why not use TortoiseSVN's diff
tool? That's what I use.
