558 - compare text files: bug or not implemented?

#1 Post by marcel » 21.10.2011, 09:36

Option "File: Compare text files" is accessible
and also "Extras: Settings: Programs: Compare files:" is accessible
and I installed and used ExamDiff in the settings
but FC does nothing.

Probably not implemented, yet, I guess.

Compare text files works fine for me.
Check the filter (set *.* first) and the check box in the program definition.

Please, could you explain me in better detail what I should do to compare the files?

- I have C:\moje_programy\ExamDiff\ExamDiff.exe.
- I created folder C:\TEST
- I created two simillar text files
___ C:\TEST\d1.txt
___ and
___ C:\TEST\d2.txt
- ---
- I started FreeCommander version 2009.02b
- I opened folder C:\TEST
- I selected d1.txt and d2.txt
- I clicked File:Compare text files:
- - ExamDiff window is displayed = OK
- - this also means there is no problem with ExamDiff
- I closed FreeCommander version 2009.02b
- ---
- I deleted all .ini files in folder C:\Users\marcel\AppData\Local\FreeCommanderXE\Settings to have default settings
- I started FreeCommander XE 0.0.0.558 donor preview
- Menu: Extras:Settings:Programs:Compare files:
- - I added new line
- - In the new line: in column Filter: exdif (= my string)
- - In the field "Program:": C:\moje_programy\ExamDiff\ExamDiff.exe
- - In the field "Parameters:": %FileCompare1% %FileCompare2%
- - Again in the window above the field "Program:" I checked the check box and now the full line is:
exdif C:\moje_programy\ExamDiff\ExamDiff.exe %FileCompare1% %FileCompare2%
- OK (closes settings)
- ---
- In the left panel: I selected d1.txt and d2.txt
- Menu: I clicked File:Compare text files:
- nothing happened (= problem. Why?)

(I did not do anything with Folder:Filter:Set filter: because it is by default equal to *.*)

What else should I do?

Your "filter" column is not right. Define as filter "*.txt;*.ini;".
You can use many compare files programs, for each extension (filter) other.
