  • How can I compare INI files effictively with BC 2.

    How can I compare INI files effictively with BC 2. I thought there was a plug in to help with this.
    Kindest Regards,

    Use the Sorted Ini Rule from: http://www.scootersoftware.com/downl...c=kb_morerules

      Chris,
      Thanks for your reply. I found the problem. The Rules do not import correctly. Specifically, the command line for the perl script is incorrect.

      I changed it to read: (minus the " )
      "C:\Program Files\Beyond Compare 2\perl.exe IniSort.pl %s %t"

      It works beautifully now. Thanks again,
      Kind Regards,
      Kevin

        The rules are designed to be extracted into a subfolder:
        c:\program files\beyond compare 2\inisort\

        If you put them in the subfolder instead of into the main Beyond Compare 2 folder, they should work without modification.

          Chris K,
          Thanks again. The text file then incorrectly states:

          Installation
          ------------

          1) Extract all files in IniSort.zip into your Beyond Compare installation
          directory. By default, this would be:
          C:\Program Files\Beyond Compare 2

          FYI.
          Kind Regards,
          Kevin

            The zip file has an IniSort folder in it, so if you extract the zip file into the Beyond Compare 2 folder, it should create the subfolder.

            This points out the need for an Add On Rule installer instead of distributing them as zip files.
