    Question Comparison script for BC4 with Mac Versions app

    Sorry if this has already been asked, but if so I couldn't find it.

    I'm using Versions 1.4.0 (https://versionsapp.com) as my SVN client. I'm looking to see if anyone has installed BC4 on Mac as the comparison tool for Versions. I have tried installing a simple command line script:

    /usr/local/bin/bcomp "$1" "$2" "$3" "$4"

    into ~/Library/Application Support/Versions/Compare Scripts as Beyond Compare.sh, and doing a chmod -x on it. In Versions, a new item "Beyond Compare" appears in Preferences > File Comparison dropdown, but when I try to do a comparison, I nevertheless keep getting a message "Script not executable. Would you like to change its permissions?", and saying yes, doesn't help.

    btw, usr/local/bin/bcomp works fine from the terminal.

    Thanks for any help.

    Hello,

    First, are you currently registered for BC4 Std or Pro? You mentioned File Compare, but the argument list looks like it is defined for a Merge. You would need Pro edition to execute a Merge, and Std can execute a Diff.
    Should your script only contain "$1" "$2", and does Versions support acting as an external Mergetool? Does it use a different script for a Merge? BC4's compare only supports a 2-way (2 variable) compare; are you only selecting 2 files when executing the script from Versions.app?
