Yeah, example you install an application and it comes with a default configuration file.

Then you change settings and have your own configuration files.

Then comes a new version, and now you want to keep your configuration, but but the new version might have a changed default configuration. So might want to compare.

Also, you write a text document or program some code, then someone other send you a patch or a modification. You want to merge it, so its nice to easily spot the differences.

Many times I have used it check between two php.ini files.
