Diff-Scripts

I have googled for any documentation on how the Diff-Scripts work, but
haven't been able to find any documentation.

 

If I implement a custom diff script for a particular file type, does
this mean that tsvn will use this script to check the file for
modifications? Looking at the scripts in the Diff-Scripts directory, I
suspect the answer to this question is no.

 

We are using svn on database files (i.e. binary). If the database is
opened by a user but no changes are made, tsvn still (correctly) marks
the file as modified because the 'last accessed' field in one of the
database tables is changed.

 

Is there a way to override the algorithm that tsvn/svn uses to detect
modifications ? I'd like to implement a custom algorithm that compares
only the 'meaningful' data in the database.

 

Thanks

Simon
