P4D2::View / compare not ascii files

Issue #76 resolved
lin
created an issue

As part of our work, we need to use a pages, keynote and numbers files. But this kind of files can't compare with the filemerge because is a "not ascii file" But we Can't check this manually (we can't open previous version without revert the version, and this is not an option because perform this action, the newer version is delete.

Is posible open a previos version of a file without revert the version?

Could be an option to compare iWork files?

    Interesting question... Do they have an in application way to compare iWork files / keynote files / numbers files?

    Do any of the other diff tools compare these sorts of things. See this FAQ item

    But yes we should have a way to "extract" a previous version of the file without reverting the whole repository... I have planned to add such a thing at some stage...

    - From the preferences add a drop down menu where you can select your external diffing tool. The setup should be automatic. If the diffing tool is not on your machine you will be warned. If it is on your machine then MacHg will configure its /Library/ Application Support/MacHg/hgrc file for this diff tool. - Diff tools currently supported are: FileMerge, AraxisMerge, P4Merge, DiffMerge, KDiff3, DelatWalker, Kaleidoscope, Changes, DiffFork, BBEdit, TextWrangler - Add some common diff tool settings directly to the hgrc so that the tool integration is easier. - (Thanks to the folks at Araxis I am allowed to include their scripts in MacHg!) - Add utility ensureFileExists:orCopyFromBundleResource: to ease the copying of files from the application bundle. - Fixes issue #76, #98, #122, #163
