This feature is only available in the Master edition of ExamDiff Pro.
This dialog contains options for text file merge.
Dialog Box OptionsIgnore
Consider upper- and lower-case to be the same.
- Linebreak styles
Ignore linebreak styles: CRLF (DOS/Windows) vs. LF (Unix) vs. CR (Mac).
Ignore all white space in lines.
Ignore leading white space in lines.
Ignore trailing white space in lines.
- Changes in amount
Ignore changes in the amount of white space in lines.
- Parts matching regular expression
Ignore, in each line, parts matching a specified regular expression. For instance, specifying //.* as a regular expression will make ExamDiff Pro ignore all single-line C++-style comments.
- Column ranges
Ignore, in each line, all text in specified ranges of columns. Use a comma-separated list of individual ranges, each of which is either a single number or a pair of hyphen-separated numbers. You can also prefix a range with "1:" or "2:" to apply it only to the first or to the second file (by default ranges apply to both files). Examples:
- [m]-n is not a valid string, for any integers m and n.
Note that columns can be defined as single characters, in which case you will be ignoring ranges of characters in each line, or as line parts delimited by any of specified characters (by default, comma or tab). The latter allows you to ignore columns in comma- or tab- (or any other character of your choice) delimited files.
- Use plug-ins during comparison
Check this option if you want to use plug-ins during prior to comparing files for merging.
