[TC10] [Feature Request] Add [>][=][=/=][<] buttons to `Compare contents` just like in `Synchronize Directories`

For the reason to conveniently compare file paths as panel's content.

Currently there is no such buttons:

[>] - Show lines found only on the left
[=] - Show lines found equal
[=/=] - Show lines found unequal
[<] - Show lines found only on the right

I never missed such functions in a compare by content.
What should be the info if I see for example a list of lines which are only on one side
without the context where they are located compared to the other side and the line around it.
I have many other specialized compare content tools but none of them has such functions.

In case if you want to synchronize 2 panels w/o compare the content of end files or w/o traverse the selected directories. Or compare only by the size by dumping the details list and compare as relative_path+size (to detect a file add, remove, movement, rename or resize). This is some kind of a different or light compare, or even dependent on intermediate file list nor the real selection list.

Now you are talk about synchronizing 2 panels and not comparing 2 files.
It doesn't make sense to discuss this for me.

Yes, synchronization of 2 panels can be done manually by finding difference between 2 file lists and copy files through another method.

I think that the option to show only differences with extra lines is sufficient and better suited for comparing text.
