Example in bash:

Code: Select all
diffmerge <(echo string1) <(echo string2)


The error which DiffMerge gives:

Code: Select all
Pathname does not refer to a folder.
Pathname[0] is not a folder. [/dev/fd/63/]


But the standard diff handle that without any problem:

Code: Select all
$ diff -u <(echo string1) <(echo string2)
--- /dev/fd/63   2014-06-14 12:08:44.000000000 +0100
+++ /dev/fd/62   2014-06-14 12:08:44.000000000 +0100
@@ -1 +1 @@
-string1
+string2


Tested DiffMerge 4.2.0 on OSX.

In the second example, it looks like it drops off the final '/'. What happens if you change your strings to not end with '/' with DiffMerge?
