  • file side by side error

    the script
    file-report layout:side-by-side options:display-mismatches &

    output-to:"report.txt" "test1.txt" "new2.txt"
    says that there are not enough parameters.
    What am I doing wrong?

    Hello,

    To confirm, which version of Beyond Compare are you currently using? It looks like you made duplicate posts in both the BC2 and BC4 forums.

    The script above looks correct, except for the extra whitespace/line break between the lines. Also, it looks like it is using relative paths; I would suggest using absolute paths surrounded by quotes while troubleshooting:

    file-report layout:side-by-side options:display-mismatches &
    output-to:"c:\temp\report.txt" "c:\temp\test1.txt" "c:\temp\new2.txt"

    If using BC4, you can set to use the text-report to better control the specific report type being generated:

    text-report layout:side-by-side options:display-mismatches &
    output-to:"c:\temp\report.txt" "c:\temp\test1.txt" "c:\temp\new2.txt"

        Ok. Does the above version 4 script help get you up and running? I'll also move this thread into the BC4 forum.
