Rhapsody 76 help for setting up Clearcase integration states :
"Rational Rhapsody files must be of the rhp_file type, and not the text_file type (which is the factory default"
and recommends converting Rational Rhapsody units that are already stored under a Rational ClearCase VOB from the text_file type to the rhp_file type(binary).
I'm trying understand the rationale behind this.AFAIK Rhapsody diffmerge works on the unit files which are text-based.

Re: Rhapsody and Clearcase2012-11-08T00:57:26ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.You are more than 3/4 right. Diff/Merge works on text files (the .sbs files for example) but open one up (Read Only please) with a text editor and you will see LOTS of things that are not intuitively obvious to the casual observer.
What you care about are the changes to the code. That is what Diff/Merge will help you find. Using CC's diff merge will show you lots of differences AND you may screw things up when you merge.

I'm assuming Rhapsody DiffMerge would work irrespective of what 'base' element type is used ( text,binary or compressed ) in Clearcase when creating a new element type.Please correct me if I'm wrong.
However from your last post I understand that 'text' type is not recommended as the unit files could include non-printable ASCII characters so would rather go for either of the other two.
