Command line options

Post by Marco » Fri Mar 18, 2011 5:25 am

I need to control from the command line whether the comparison ignores case or not, and whether it ignores white space or not. I can use the /i and /w options to ignore case and white space. For example:

examdiff file1.txt file2.txt /i /w

However, it seems that I cannot force the comparison to be case sensitive or white space sensitive, because there is no command line option for this, and examdiff will use "the last used option" when the /i and /w options are omitted. The result is essentially unpredictable when these options are omitted.

Is there any option to force case sensitive and white space sensitive comparisons from the command line?

Thanks in advance,
Marco

This is a good point. Version 1.9 (now available at http://www.prestosoft.com/edp_examdiff.asp) introduces ability to set negative command line options for /i, /w, /b, /l, /e, /t, and /d using the ! character (similar to ExamDiff Pro).
