  • applying a patch visually?

    Hi there,

    beyond compare is really the best compare-diff-alike tool to work with.
    I might be mad but I would like this functionality:
    Giving BC only a source-file and a patch-file and the second half of the screen shows the source-file with the patch file applied so I can merge the patch in manually without applying the patch to the source file before.

    Is this already possible and I only missed it?
    If not, would it be possible to implement?


    thanks,

    thomas

    This isn't possible in the current version of BC, but it is a great idea. I'll add it to our feature wish list.

        It will probably be some time (6 months or more) before we have a chance to add this feature to BC.

        We only have 5 full time employees. We carefully consider all feature requests that come in, but we have a pretty high rate of requests (our request list has about 450 entries in it at this time) and we just don't have the resources to implement them all immediately.

        We periodically review the list and select items to implement, and this feature does sound very useful, but it is tough to say exactly when we'll implement it.
