DiffMerge reopens in closed too quickly

Post by morelm » Thu May 23, 2013 11:00 am

Hello. I'm opening DiffMerge using Applescript and the DiffMerge.sh command line to compare two files. I've recently found that DiffMerge will reopen if it is closed within a few (1-7) seconds after it opens. Is there any way to stop this behavior? This process is part of a Quality Assurance process that requires the user to run the script hundreds of times daily and this pause is causing problems for them. Here's an example of the command used to open the file

Code: Select all

/usr/bin/diffmerge.sh -nosplash -ro2 -c="MetaChecker0.4.2 - /FilePath/FS20011024_01.wav" -t1="Database" -t2="Audio File" '/var/tmp/MetaChecker_db' '/var/tmp/MetaChecker_file'
Thanks in advance for your help!

That's odd. We haven't seen that one before.
If its what I suspect, this should take care of it:

Exit DiffMerge.
Edit the file "~/Library/Preferences/SourceGear DiffMerge Preferences".
Add the following to the bottom of the file:


Save that and then try running DiffMerge again using your script.

Let us know if that does or doesn't work.
