Re: Setting the diff program to a specific filename

Hi Rafael, hi Stefan

I just tried to define an alternate diff viewer in "TSVN settings->
external programs -> diff viewer -> advanced" as an override for
"myfile.pas", but still the default diff viewer fires up.

I see two possible solutions:
1) the "easy" one, Rafael defines a diff tool in "TSVN settings->
external programs -> diff viewer". This will become the default for all
diff actions. But then Rafael can use "Shift-right-click->Diff" to call
TortoiseMerge for his standard diffs and "right-click->Diff" for
filelist.cfg diffs. This "should" work at least from explorer. Dunno if
you can shift diff from commit or log dialogs. Easy for Stefan, getting
used to for Rafael :)

2) Stefan fires up his dev environment and changes the behaviour of the
advanced diff to allow for complete filenames instead of extensions.
Like "filelist.cfg" -> Rafaels special diff script, "*.cfg" or ".cfg" ->
"Rafaels other diff script" ;)
