    Default Comparison of folders with Beyond Compare Script

    I would like to have a Beyond Compare script that compare the file contents of two folders and produce a text-report.
    How can I do this?
    Using the text-report only compares two files. The folder-report does not compare the file contents.

    thanks

    Hello,

    The text-report can also act on the current selection (similar to the graphical interface of Folder Compare, select files, Actions menu -> File Compare Report). Here's one example:

    log verbose "c:\bclog.txt"
    criteria rules-based
    load "c:\folder1" "c:\folder2"
    expand all
    select all.diff.files all.newer.files all.older.files
    text-report layout:side-by-side options:display-mismatches output-to:"c:\bcreport.html" output-options:html-color

    Note, this would not currently select and report Orphan files (in their entirety).
