I'm wondering if anyone has used specific software
programs that track code changes-

My last company used Visual Source Safe, which I think many others use as well. In order to change a file, the programmer or other user has to check it out. This prevents people from working on the same document at the same time and also preserves the earlier versions. You can view the previous version and the new version side by side and it highlights the changes.

hope this helps!
