    Is there a diff tool / application for comparing text file version in Time Machine???

    Would love to be able to:
    a) walk through files in directories in the tool
    b) click a certain file & request diff
    c) then get a 2 pane view with a diff between the 2 files
    d) ability to change the version of the files in the panes (i.e. going back in time in time machine)

    You have to do the comparison visually, but you can browse previous versions in apps that support Versions (TextEdit, Pages). It will pull versions out of TimeMachine as necessary, and you can copy text from the old copy into the new as desired.
