Using tortoiseproc to open tortoisemerge automatically?

I'm trying to figure out how to use the command line switches for
tortoiseproc to cause tortoisemerge to open up and show me my working
copy modifications to a file automatically, so I can run it as an
external tool from within my code editor. I use editplus for most of my
php coding needs, and it would be useful to be able to hit ctrl-3 and
immediately see my modifications to the current file. Editplus calls
them "user tools", most other editors have similar capabilities.

I played around with tortoiseproc.exe /command:showcompare and got this
to almost work:

"c:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin\TortoiseProc.exe" /command:showcompare
/url1:d:\temp\testsvn\blahnewfile.cs /revision1:BASE
/url2:d:\temp\testsvn\blahnewfile.cs /revision2:

d:\temp\testsvn\blahnewfile.cs is a file with local modifications, but
it just shows me the diff between the base and base revisions, so no
changes. Is there a way to specify "working copy version" for
/revision2, similar to how BASE can be used?

I'm still on tortoise 1.6.16 btw.

Also I did get it working with the following batch file, but it requires
a command line svn client. You might need to change %ProgramW6432% to
either %ProgramFiles% or %ProgramFiles(x86)% depending on whether your
windows and/or tortoise is 64 bit or 32 bit. Or just hard code it :)


@echo off

rem strip path to get file name
SET B="%TEMP%\%~nx1_base"
SET C="%TEMP%\%~nx1_current"

rem delete old copies if they exist
if exist %B% del %B%
if exist %C% del %C%

rem export base and working copies of the file
svn export -rBASE %1 %B%
svn export %1 %C%

rem run tortoisemerge
"%ProgramW6432%\TortoiseSVN\bin\TortoiseMerge.exe" /base:%B% /mine:%C%
