Git & Devart CodeCompare integration

Thanks to @Daniel

I finally succeed integrating Git & my favorite comparison tool Devart CodeCompare

To integrate add the following lines to the c:\Users\[User Name]\.gitconfig file

    tool = codecompare
    guitool = codecompare
    tool = codecompare 
    keepBackup = false
[difftool "codecompare"]
    cmd = 'C:/Program Files/Devart/Code Compare/CodeCompare.exe' \"$LOCAL\" \"$REMOTE\"
    renames = true
[mergetool "codecompare"]
    cmd = 'C:/Program Files/Devart/Code Compare/CodeMerge.exe' -MF=\"$LOCAL\" -TF=\"$REMOTE\" -BF=\"$BASE\" -RF=\"$MERGED\"
    trustExitCode = true

Now git difftool will work properly from both command line and Git Extensions.

P.S. I strongly recommend to disable Visual Studio integration with CodeCompare during installation. I think it is much better to use its stand-alone host because of the performance.

EDIT: I found that mergetool was not working. Updated it.
