A Spec is the name of a folder or file.  Beyond Compare supports several different types of specs.

Local and network drives are represented using the syntax native to each platform:

C:\MyFile.ext

\\MyServer

\\MyServer\MyFolder

/MyFolder

~/MyFolder

smb://MyServer/MyFolder

 

Portable media devices (Android phones, MP3 players, cameras) are represented using the MTP syntax:

mtp://MyDevice/MyFolder

 

Webpages are represented using the HTTP syntax.  This support only works for individual files, and cannot be used for base folders:

http://www.example.com

 

Live registries are represented using the standard syntax:

reg:\\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\MyKey

reg:\\MyComputer\HKEY_USERS\MyKey

 

The clipboard is represented using this syntax:
