View Full Version : PVCS and Merge Tool Integration
Any thoughts of integrating with pvcs, their merge tool bytes and I enjoy using bc!

Anyone else is welcome to chime in, but we don't have any official suggestions. PVCS has apparently been replaced by "Merant Professional", and it looks like a pretty big hassle to get a demo copy, so we haven't checked their third-party diff support.
You might have some luck asking Merant. If they do support third-party diff utilities post it here and I'll add it to our version control page.

We use PVCS from Merant and I've written a simple app that allows one to use Beyond Compare ('cause it's the best!) for the "Show Differences" menu option. Shoot me a private message if interested.

I am in the same situation, using Merant Pro and wanted to change the diff tools with the BC2 one.
Please, don't wait to post, what is your solution.

We've just added PVCS instructions on our version control page (http://www.scootersoftware.com/support.php?c=kb_vcs). It uses a user-contributed program that replaces the standard pvcsmerge.exe with one that calls BC2. It includes the C++ source in case anyone needs it.
We haven't tested it internally, so if you have trouble with it or have any fixes/enhancements, either post them here or send an email to email@example.com.
no2nt: If your program does anything differently/better we'd be happy to add it to our page too.
