View Full Version : How to compare remote files with http://... paths
I tried searching this forum for answers to this question, but 'http' and 'remote' didn't help me. please point me to the threads if this query has already been asked.
I need to compare files which are accessed through the browser as
http://abc.y.com/index.html and http://abc.y.com/index1.html.
Is this possible? if so, how?
Left click on the first file, Ctrl-left click on tbe second (both files are now highlighted), then right click on either file to bring up a context menu and select "compare in viewer".

I think ramd wants to compare files directly out of the WWW. You cannot "right-click" them.
Maybe he is inspired by the possibility to acces files on ftp-servers.
I figured the following out:
- entering http:// things in the fileviewer leads to missuccess :mad: .
- Opening the BC helpfile and searching for "http" reveales a topic dealing with 'web equivalents'. No idea if it leads you further.
- Accessing files via WebDAV is already on the famous wish list for a very long time. Search the forum ...
- A workaround could be to use a website-grabber which saves a website to local disk.
- Maybe there is a http-over-ftp-tunnel-proxy-or-something out there in the web. Try googling for it ...

BC supports local, network, and ftp locations, but it doesn't support web urls yet.
