I use Scooter Software's Beyond Compare 2 as my diff/merge application,
and I use it to partially revert changes from within a diff all the

$30/user, and the most you can pay is $2500 for a world-wide license
that covers all employees everywhere.

I habitually review diffs of all modified files before check-in. When
using emacs' cvs mode, there is a way to go through the diff one chunk
at a time much like the perforce diff tool. However, I can also

is an editor I can actually edit the file right there.
Using P4V, I can diff a file before submitting using CTRL-D, but this
is a read-only view. I think I could achieve my goals if the merge
tool came up instead.
P.S. Is this list configured to silently drop messages that have been
