Re: Feature request - key column specification

I understand removing the TIMESTAMP value and replacing it with the string "TIMESTAMP" would make it compare the rest of the line, but the issue is that a line with a timestamp within about .01 seconds is ok to compare but a time difference larger than that should be flagged as a difference. we are ...

Re: Feature request - key column specification

Just some additional info to help clarify my previous post about the timestamps being in different columns. The output is a collection of about 40 different reports which are written out to a single file, one after the other. The timestamp will always be in the same column in a particular report, bu...

Re. another possible workaround

Jeff, The reason some timestamps are different is because of bugs (undoubtedly several) in the new version of the source code, some sections of the code were getting skipped. There's about 2 million lines of code that was converted from Fortran to C++ and we are trying to identify the causes for the...

Reply to: I'm not sure DiffMerge is the right tool for this

I guess I was unclear in describing my usage of DiffMerge on these sets of reports. You don't seem to understand the degree of similarity between the 2 reports being compared. Maybe I can better explain why I feel your wonderful DiffMerge is the best tool I have located for this job. The 2 files are...

Feature request - key column specification

It would be useful if there was a way to specify a column range in which an exact match would identify a matching pair of records. Also if this could be re-specified for each new diff following a manual alignment marker. I'll try to explain what I mean. Suppose you have a file containing 2 time orde...

Jeff, Would it be possible to log a feature request that a checkbox be added to the Manual Alignment marker screen (and a corresponding display column in the list of markers already added) to specify that a manual alignment is a matching line, rather than simply a start of a new diff It could defaul...

Too slow entering manual alignment markers

I'm using DiffMerge to view the differences in 2 moderate size files (one is 7000 lines, the other version is 5700 lines). They are reports from running a simulation. The files consist of a series of column formatted reports with page titles. The reports vary in width from about 60 columns to about ...

Slow Loading - needs a progress bar

It would be nice if the status bar across the bottom of the window contained a progress bar. When I diff 2 moderate size files (one is 7000 lines, the other version is 5700 lines) it takes a good 2 minutes to load and appears to be hung during the load time, although in reality it's just "working" s...
