    Re: Folder/File comparison problems

    Yurdi,

    Thank you for the screen shots. This is happening because the script is using "select all". If you change the select command to only select different files, you won't get the names of matching files listed in the report.

    Code:
    criteria rules-based
    filter "*.txt;*.rof;*.xml"
    load %LEFT_FOLDER% %RIGHT_FOLDER%
    expand all
    select diff.files
    file-report layout:over-under options:ignore-unimportant,display-mismatches output-to:%REPORT_FILE%
    file-report layout:xml options:ignore-unimportant,display-mismatches output-to:%REPORT_FILE_XML%
    file-report layout:side-by-side options:ignore-unimportant,display-mismatches output-to:%REPORT_FILE_html% output-options:html-color

    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for so fast answer, but i have question why in my html file i see match file and mismaches since i use :file-report layout:side-by-side options:ignore-unimportant,display-mismatches output-to:%REPORT_FILE_html% output-options:html-color i think i should not see those matching files?

    I would like to have result like : result from GUI link.

    But my script give me result like : result from script link.

    Result from gui Script result

    Sorry for those 2 links but i think would be more easy to understand what i realy want with some image.

    any help would be apprecited

    Yurdi.

    Hello Yurdi,

    First, change the comma in the filter command to a semicolon to separate filter items.

    Next, to output to html, you need to use "output-options:html-color" with the file-report command to get html output.

    Code:
    criteria rules-based
    filter "*.txt;*.rof;*.xml"
    load %LEFT_FOLDER% %RIGHT_FOLDER%
    expand all
    select all
    file-report layout:over-under options:ignore-unimportant,display-mismatches output-to:%REPORT_FILE%
    file-report layout:xml options:ignore-unimportant,display-mismatches output-to:%REPORT_FILE_XML%
    file-report layout:side-by-side options:ignore-unimportant,display-mismatches output-to:%REPORT_FILE_html% output-options:html-color

    Aaron I can do the comparisons with the GUI, but not with the script. I sent you a PM.

    What if you perform the script on your own created folders, with simple text files, with alphanumeric names?

    Do your file names contain any odd characters? If you load the program in the GUI, can you manually perform this action?

    I changed in the script now the line of loding folders to a single folder
    load "C:\BC-compare-folders\SDHS-1.0\include\NISsrv\ADMH" "C:\BC-compare-folders\NIS-2.0\include\NISsrv\ADMH",
    which contains *.H files (three of them in each folder) in both of them.Now I get the following log:
    03.01.2008 19:09:05 Load Comparison: C:\BC-compare-folders\SDHS-1.0\include\NISsrv\ADMH <-> C:\BC-compare-folders\NIS-2.0\include\NISsrv\ADMH
    03.01.2008 19:09:05 >> expand all
    03.01.2008 19:09:05 >> select all.files
    03.01.2008 19:09:05 >> file-report layout:side-by-side & options:ignore-unimportant,display-context & output-to:"C:\BC-tmp\result.html" & output-options:html-color
    03.01.2008 19:09:05 Script Error: Incorrect parameters
    03.01.2008 19:09:10 >> User Canceled
    03.01.2008 19:09:10 Script completed in 5,05 seconds

    I ran your script on a set of test files and it seems fine. If you run it on a different set of folders, with a couple of files, does it work for you?

    Is it possible that some of your file names or specific files are giving you issues?

    Folder/File comparison problems

    Hello,

    I try to generate reports of files, which are located in two folders (plus subfolders). I have written the following script:
    log verbose c:\log.log
    load "C:\BC-compare-folders\SDHS-1.0" "C:\BC-compare-folders\NIS-2.0"
    expand all
    select all.files
    file-report layout:side-by-side &
    options:ignore-unimportant,display-context &
    output-to:"C:\BC-tmp\result.txt" &
    output-options:html-color

    the script is invoked by executing the BC.CMD file, which contains:
    "C:\Program Files\Beyond Compare 2\BC2.exe" @C:\BC\BC-all.script

    As result I get the following output:
    03.01.2008 12:32:18 Beyond Compare Version 2.5.2 (build 252)
    03.01.2008 12:32:18 Exception occurred at: 00011BB6
    03.01.2008 12:32:18 System Error. Code: 87.
    03.01.2008 12:32:18 The parameter is incorrect
    03.01.2008 12:32:18 Script completed in 0,14 seconds

    What do I wrong in the script?

    Thanks in advance,

    Christian
