Code Compare Integration with GIT

To use Code Compare with Git, you need to add the following lines to the gitconfig file:

[difftool "codecompare"]
cmd = 'C:\\Program Files\\Devart\\Code Compare\\codecompare.exe' -W \"$LOCAL\" \"$REMOTE\" 
renames = true

tool = codecompare
guitool = codecompare
[mergetool "codecompare"]
cmd = 'C:\\Program Files\\Devart\\Code Compare\\codemerge.exe' -MF \"$LOCAL\" -TF \"$REMOTE\" -BF \"$BASE\" -RF \"$MERGED\" 
trustExitCode = true
keepBackup = false
tool = codecompare
guitool = codecompare

Note: The global gitconfig file is located in C:\Users\MyLogin\.gitconfig. The config file for a local repository is located in repository root in the ".git" folder (this folder is hidden by default).
