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

Why not just export the settings from the register (into a .reg file.) You
then send the .reg files out and the user double clicks the file and the
registry is updated.

Subject: 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 thoughts?


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
