New extension for file comparison

Wednesday, November 23, 2005 8:01:17 AM

In my last post I talked about Beyond Compare and using it to replace the Dreamweaver synchronization feature. It got me thinking about a missing feature in DW. I've been using file comparison programs for quite a while, but only recently discovered Beyond Compare. I used to use Windiff and had my own extension for Dreamweaver MX that allowed me to use Windiff to compare two files. Now that Dreamweaver 8 has the feature, the extension is no longer needed. . .or is it? Dreamweaver 8 has many cool file compare features, but lacks one I like to use: compare a file in your site with a file somewhere else on the system. I reworked the extension to address this. As an added bonus, it works back to Dreamweaver MX and DW MX 2004 (and maybe earlier.)

Find it in my list of extensions at http://www.tom-muck.com/extensions/.It's a free download. I have not tested on the Mac. If anyone runs into issues, please let me know.
