  • Help with my simple script

    I just started reading about creating scripts today. I have the following script

    file-report layout:interleaved &
    options:display-context &
    output-to:%3 output-options:html-color %1 %2

    The .html file is generated but when I open it.. all it has is a simple description stating the difference.

    Contents of html file

    Text Compare Produced: 7/5/2012 2:07:48 PM Mode: Differences Left file: C:\directory1\dataqwik\procedure\ACCUPD.PROC Right file: C:\directory2\dataqwik\procedure\ACCUPD.PROC -+ type Number CID wooo -------------------------

    This isn't what I am expecting. I was expecting it to be similar to when a interleaved report is run directly in Beyond Compare. Am I wrong or is there something wrong with my script?

    Are you currently using BC2 or BC3? This is the BC2 forum section, but assuming BC3 (interleaved report type, Text Compare), the report should work as expected.

    Are you using the latest release of BC3 (3.3.4)? If not, you can update any BC 3.x release to the latest 3.3.4 from the Help menu -> Check for Updates, or from our website.
