    Re: Single-character matches

    Thanks for the tip, Christoph!

    I had to upgrade from 2.0.1 to the current version to get the Alignment tab. (I don't find an "Extras" menu; I selected Tools/Edit Current Rules).

    The "Simple" open for character alignment seems to do what I want.

    Hi Jerry!

    You can modify BC's behaviour via the Rules (when fileviewer is opened, open the "Extras" menu and choose "Modify current rule...").
    In the following dialogbox choose the "Alignment" tab.

    From the BC helpfile:

    Character Alignment
    After the line alignment is done, the matched lines are compared to show differences within each line.


    Simple
    Find the first and last difference on the line and mark everything between them as a mismatch. This method is faster than the standard method, but it produces lower quality alignments.


    Standard
    Line up matching characters then mark added, deleted, and changed characters as mismatches.


    Column-based
    Compare each character to the same position in the opposite line and mark matches and mismatches as appropriate.
    I hope this helps ...


    Bye
    Christoph

    Single-character matches

    I'm getting compare results where single characters in words match in a meaningless way. For example:

    <font color="red">Ch</font>e<font color="red">ck</font>

    <font color="red">S</font>e<font color="red">t</font>

    Is there a way to require a more substantial match for matching text?

    Thanks,

    Jerry
