Pinned topic RDz 8.5.1 Compare Question

‏2013-03-27T13:42:22Z |
When compareing two files to each other in the "Remote Systems Explorer Perspective" does RDz have the ability to save the comparison to a seperate output file? Also is there a way to only see the conflicted lines of code instead of the entire file?

    Also, is there a way to narrow the scope of the compare to just 8 through 72 columns (for COBOL code).

    Starting in release 9.0, there are actions and preferences to limit the differences identified by ignoring the sequence area (columns 1-6) and/or ignoring the information area (Columns right of Margin R).   These behaviors can be toggled on or off from within the Compare Editor using the context menu or toolbar buttons, and the initial criteria used when the Compare Editor first opens can be altered by configuring the preferences on page COBOL > Compare/Patch. The Ignore Sequence Numbers action is also available for PL/I and JCL, and both of these languages also have their own Compare/Patch preference pages that can be configured.
