  • perforce configuration details

    Installed ok on 10.9.2 (nice touch asking if BC should relocate itself).

    Using path to /Users/name/Applications/Beyond Compare in the 'Other application' in the diff and merge dialogs, and the standard command line args.

    I've installed the command line tools also, but I'm not using those in the config dialog.

    Is this the recommended setup?

    Hello,

    Not quite. You'll want to launch the GUI then use the Beyond Compare menu -> Install Command Line Utilities to get bcomp and bcompare installed on your machine. For perforce, you'll want to use bcomp.

    We have a forum thread here:

      Thanks for the fast reply. I've already got the command line tools installed. I see that perforce is missing from the other thread, if you want to add any missing details there?

        I missed that I am configuring p4v.

          If you have any confirmed steps, we'd certainly appreciate the feedback. I'd then append them to the forum post (and eventually combined into a KB article).

            is how I've configured diff, and this is working ok for me.

              Interesting. I would suspect you would instead need to use the following for the Location:

              /usr/local/bin/bcomp
              or
              bcomp

              Does switching to either of these work (and would possibly help if multiple Diff calls are made while others are still open)?

                  Thanks!

                  Let us know if you test out Merge as well.
