  • How get matches and mismatches with left side orphan files only using folder-compare

    Hi,

    I have below script to compare two folders using Folder-Compare.
    I want to generate the report of both matched and mismatched files along with left side orphan files.
    But the below script is generating report with left side orphan files only.

    log "%4"
    criteria binary
    load "%1" "%2"
    expand all
    folder-report layout:side-by-side options:display-all,display-left-orphans output-to:"%3" output-options:html-color


    Can you suggest how to get matched and mismatched files with only left side orphan files.


    Thanks in Advance,
    Dinesh

    Hello,

    The options:display-* options are not cumulative. You would need to pick one specific argument and then generate that report. We don't have the combination of "not right orphans". It sounds a bit like you would need two reports: display-left-newer-orphans and then a second report that is display-no-orphans. You can have two folder-report commands sequentially in scripting
    log "%4"
    criteria binary
    load "%1" "%2"
    expand all
    folder-report layout:side-by-side options:display-left-newer-orphans output-to:"%3" output-options:html-color
    folder-report layout:side-by-side options:display-no-orphans output-to:"%4" output-options:html-color

    The graphical interface can mimic the currently set display filters, if you use a combination of Toggles display filters, and then generate a report. Some of the other report layouts would also group criteria together (summary) or could be parsed as nodes (xml).
