  • Subversion and folder compaere

    I want to achieve a tree compare in svn in situations where I come to a tree-conflict. The folder compare in BC3 would be an excellent tool in that situation

    I tried the integration to Subverion with the:
    diff-cmd = C:\Progra~1\Beyond~1\svn.bat

    and run the command "svn diff [trunk url] [branch url]"

    But the the BC3 file-compare interface appears, only for the first file.
    How could I tell that the folder-compare interface should appear instead?

    Hi pefr,

    Sorry we didn't get back to you earlier. Subversion doesn't support this; when you use "svn diff" it downloads each file pair, launches a diff, waits for it to return, then goes on to the next pair. It doesn't call BC with everything at once. We are looking into alternatives, but for now you need to checkout/export the trunk and branch into separate directories and compare them directly.
