Re: Setting the diff program to a specific filename

Unfortunately, I can't change the file extension.

It's an important file in my application, and the runtime doesn't
accept another filename, only Filelist.cfg

I asked that because sometimes, I need to compare the file with the
base file or with previous revision. But it's not a text file, so,
TortoiseMerge can't just compare this file. So, I created a program to
convert the Filelist.cfg to text. So, I can compare the file using
TortoiseMerge. In this application, I convert the entiry Filelist.cfg
to formated text, and then I call the TortoiseMerge using the command
line. It's works fine. And to work with the others CFG files, I did a
conditional in my application to just calls the TortoiseMerge without
any convertion to text. There is no problem with, but if there is some
way to configure the diff tool to a specific file, it's could be

Anyway, thanks Bob and Simon.

ps: is it could be a new feature in tortoise? maybe there are others
situations where is necessary to compare a specific file... or not!
