RE: Using tkdiff 4.1.3 on windows with svn

Ok I finally figured this out. It appears that the Tkdiff developers decided to implement the cmdline interface on windows different then on Unix.
 
On a Unix machine if you were in a svn controlled workspace you could use:
 
tkdiff -r 10 -r 15 fileA -- this would diff fileA from 10 to 15
 
on windows this will NOT work! Instead you have to do:
 
tkdiff url_to_fileA@10 <mailto:url_to_fileA@10> url_fileA@15 <mailto:url_fileA@15>
 
the Unix format follows the existing tkdiff standard where as the windows format adheres to one of the svn diff formats.

Subject: Using tkdiff 4.1.3 on windows with svn

Hello,

I have seen some posts regarding svn and tkdiff and that tkdiff 4.0 ... now supports svn controlled files. In fact this is true as I have it working in a Unix environment. However, I have tkdiff 4.1.3 installed on a windows box and am trying to use tkdiff to diff two revisions of the same svn controlled file, this does not work on a windows machine. In fact it won't even give me an error. It just goes away.

From a cmd prompt: if I type tkdiff.exe it will pop up a diff window if I select a file from an svn controlled workspace and then put in two different version numbers (which on Unix yield a difference) the window simply goes away without any warnings or errors?

Any ideas on what is going on here would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers - reagan
