  • Folder with File Change Report

    I have two directories I am comparing.

    Is there a way to get a single report (or set of reports) automtically that shows the difference of every file.

    Specifically I am looking at source code and I want a report of all the differences since the last build.

    Then I could automate it in FinalBuilder so It could email me to handle code reviews.

    BC can do this.

    Open the folders in the Folder Viewer.
    View|Expand All.
    Edit|Select All Files.
    Actions|File Differences Report.

    You can also automate this as a BC script using the file-report command.

        is there an update on how to do this with the new version?

        I noticed the menu commands seem to be different

          This is in reference to BC2.

          BC3's menu commands are slightly different, referring to the report option as the File Compare Report, and script as the Text-Report command.

          Make sure you only have files selected. It is best to test by just selecting a pair or two of files, then if that works use the Select All Files command. If you select a zip (which is treated as a folder), then the command will not appear in the menu (which also happens if you select a Folder).
