Integrating with Diff tools like BeyondCompare and WinDiff

Postby DataMystic Support » Thu Aug 14, 2014 10:45 am

To setup Beyond Compare as your Diff tool in TextPipe Pro, first go to TextPipe's Edit Menu\Preferences:

Then, in the Diff tool field, browse to the location of Beyond Compare's .exe file, or paste this text:

Code: Select all

C:\Program Files\Beyond Compare 3\BCompare.exe


To start a Diff operation, perform a Trial Run, then use Extra Options\Open Diff Tool to open Beyond Compare:

You can also right click on input filenames and output filenames to start Beyond Compare.

The same method should also work with WinMerge - an Open Source differencing and merging tool for Windows.

For download visit http://winmerge.org/
