But have these plug-ins been developed by MarchHare outside of open
source or are they supplied from somewhere else??
In other words are the plug-ins freely available?

I have been using WinMerge for several years and I have not seen such
a plug-in anywhere.

And in what way are they pluggable into cvs?
Do we need to separately check out the two versions of say a Word
document an then push them into WinMerge to see the differences??
Or is there some other way?
