  • Compare file names with different file types

    Hi, I thought I had seen this already in the forum once, but I can't find it.. the question is: can I compare the content of two directories to compare just the file names ?
    (Sources left and Objects right) so you can see or you are missing an Object, or worst, a Source file.

    Go into the Session->Comparison Criteria dialog and uncheck the "Compare Timestamps" and "Compare Contents" checkboxes. Files will either be black if they exist on both sides (regardless of whether they actually have differences), or blue if they exist on both sides.

      Sorry Craig, but that's not exactly what i mean:
      Folder A has file a.p, b.p and c.p in it
      Folder B has file a.r, b.r and c.r in it
      In this simple example I can see that in both folders there is an a, b and c file. But is there an option to handel this with BC ?
      Left folder A shows a.p, b.p and c.p and Right folder B shows a.r, b.r and c.r lined up with each other

        Hi willum!

        When you have folder-viewer opened, simply klick on the balance icon in the BC toolbar. Then a dialog-box appears named "Comparison control". Switch to the "Advanced" tab and click the checkbox for "ignore file extensions".

        That's it ...
