I work on a bioinformatics tool that produces large TSV files with many (~100) and long (~5-200 char) columns. Getting a whole line from a normal diff is overwhelming. It's more important to have the exact column that changes.

Googling "csv-diff", "csvdiff", "tsv-diff", "tsvdiff" returned two maintained tools that seem quite decent and are moderately popular (100+ stars on Github):

I was wondering if there are any other tools out there that I may have missed.

    What are you missing with the two candidates you found that keeps you from using them? Note that pure list questions are considered off-topic at all SE sites. So could you please outline your requirements (especially those the two candidates miss)? Thanks!
