Comparing Tables with ExamDiff Pro
Let's say that I want to compare two comma-separated files that represent tabular data dumps from a database.

xsv command line tool, which, among its other features, can sort CSV files by a given column.
To set up xsv as an ExamDiff Pro plug-in, download the latest version here, unzip it, and then set it up in ExamDiff Pro as follows (with the appropriate path to xsv.exe in the Application line):
