Guiffy Diff/Merge Tool

As of Razor 5.1+, the Guiffy tool is fully integrated within the Versions client. Razor comes with an OEM license that gives the user permission to run Guiffy within the Razor product suite. Users may purchase a seperate license which allows them to run Guiffy outside of Razor.


The Guiffy tool is bundled with the Windows Razor 5.1+ Server and the Windows RazorPC Client.The Guiffy tool is a Java-based application. The installer will install both the Guiffy tool
as well as the applicable Java Runtime Environment (JRE).


The Guiffy tool is not bundled with Razor on non-Windows platforms. This product and the appropriate Java runtime engine (JRE) needs to be installed by the user. The product installer and the Java runtime engine may be downloaded from here.

The Guiffy product may be installed in the $HOME directory of the Razor admin account or alternatively in the Razor area under the $RAZOR_HOME/ThirdParty/Guiffy directory. The JRE is installed under the Guiffy tool installation so that it doesn't conflict an an existing JRE installation. The environment variable GUIFFY_HOME must be defined by the user prior to using the product. This is best accomplished by placing the environment variable in the rz_prep files.

For more information on the Guiffy/Razor interface see Razor FAQ.

NOTE: Integration w/Razor requires Guiffy 7.0 build #165 or later. Remote users of Razor on UNIX/Linux platforms will need to install a copy of the Guiffy tool for every client and set
the value of GUIFFY_HOME to the installation directory. It may be installed in the user's $HOME directory.
