Mapping diff tools to file types (or registry vs. config files)

Hi All,

                I'm just contending with a little issue I wrote about
ages ago. Basically I need to map quite a few file types to the
appropriate diff tools & I'm very lazy... ;)


The issue is that the current file type to diff tool mapping is
expressed via the registry. Which is fair enough really. However it'd be
much easier for my (admittedly fairly esoteric) needs if this settings
could be described in an external file - that way it's one simple file
copy verses a lot of messing around with the registry. My underlying
problem is I need to get these settings out to quite a number of people
& possibly add to the list as time goes on, therefore registry tweaking
is a bit messy in comparison to the file copy option.


I admit the case for this is fairly weak, but having said that I doubt
the work involved would be massive - I'd even volunteer myself. Any





PS. Stefan, I note there's talk of a merge of the partial-directory
branch in the SVN trunk. If and when this happens, do you think it'll be
a lot of work to expose to TSVN? I only ask as my users would currently
kill for this feature...
