    Default Hg integration, launching with no args use case

    Hi,

    I am wondering if anyone has encountered this issue before and have found a solution.

    I am trying to integrate BC4 Mac with Hg (hg version 2.7.1), I have added the following to my .hgrc:

    [extdiff]
    cmd.bcomp = /usr/local/bin/bcomp
    opts.bcomp = -ro1


    One use case I use often with external diff, is to run the command with no parameters to see the diff of my local workspace vs head, as so 'hg bcomp'.
    When running this however, I can see the list of modified files, but when I try to open the diff of any of them, I get a red X next to the file names and the message "Unable to open file <File Path>"

    I have also tried with the 'bompare' binary, but that fares even worse, it cannot even seem to open the folder diff.

    The current release doesn't support folder compares from version control systems; it returns control to the VCS too quickly and the temp directories it's trying to compare get deleted. That will be fixed in the next alpha.
