I want to merge each file in a directory (i.e. for different branches of the same code). I should be able to choose the files that I want to merge with filters (i.e. only source files, not images, etc).
I was just about to shell out good money for semanticmerge. I need to compare two source trees to find subtle differences in a sea of reformatted code. I was really excited to find sm, installed it, tried to do my directory compare..
To my total surprise it's not possible!
This tool is absolutely useless to me. It's been seven years since this issue has been opened and it still isn't there.
So yeah. Definite do not buy from me.
Most merge tools support it so it's quite a no brainer. Just do it :-)
As a result standard command git difftool -d will not work with SemanticMerge. I've tested it successfully with AraxisMerge, P4Compare, WinMerge, Code Compare, KDiff3...)
I NEED THIS!!
It would be fantastic if you could DIFF directories.
I make extensive use of WinMerge to diff all sorts of files, but it's kind of crazy having multiple Diff/Merge tools.
Michael, this is the kind of thing that your version control tool should let you do, don't you think so?
Why don't you take a look at Plastic SCM (our version control! :-P), I think you'll find your answers there...
