Tools to use: Comparing Files and Folders between two directories

Post by OpenXTalkPaul »

I've started to rearranged the IDE repo to match the folder structure of the LCC 9.6.3 as closely as possible (the repo has some extra files that need sorting)
I've done this because I intend to write full blown stack that can compares the OXT IDE repo folder, as you would have it after downloading & unzipping, to the contents of an LCC 9.6.3 installation (which I believe is slightly different on the 3 platforms it's available for). Ultimately the goal for this would be for checking and tracking what files have changed between the two versions and then be able to patch from one to the other.

In the meantime I've found that Apple's Xcode already includes a utility for doing similar. It's called FileMerge.app and it lives inside the Xcode.app bundle -> Contents -> Applications

In action it looks like this:
