DIFFZilla bugs with comments
« on: August 21, 2014, 04:48:51 pm »
Copy alias.e alias.e.COPY
echo Hello >> alias.e.COPY

Use DIFFZilla to compare alias.e to alias.e.COPY
It shows the block comment at the top of the file is different, even though they are identical.

Disable "Skip comments at the begining of the file", and the problem goes away.

alias.e.COPY is not recognized as Slick-C because it's extension is ".COPY", not ".e", so it does not have any comments at the beginning to ignore.  Change the mode of alias.e.COPY to Slick-C and the option will work as expected.
