B5: no vsdiff command line option help
« on: September 18, 2014, 04:03:03 pm »
B5:

vsdiff -h

Results in a "File '' does not exist." pop up dialog. On V18 it provided some help. I've also tried --h and --help.

My old scripts running vsdiff don't work anymore.

Previously I would recursively diff a couple directories like this:
vsdiff -excludefilespec ".* ~* #* .#* .SYNC/" /tmp/ryanw.sldiff.559 /user/ryanw/project/comlib/trunk

It appears that I now must include a -filespec option. I've tried:
vsdiff -filespec '' -excludefilespec ".* ~* #* .#* .SYNC/" /tmp/ryanw.sldiff.559/ /user/ryanw/project/comlib/trunk/
vsdiff -filespec '*' -excludefilespec ".* ~* #* .#* .SYNC/" /tmp/ryanw.sldiff.559/ /user/ryanw/project/comlib/trunk/
vsdiff -filespec '' -excludefilespec ".*;~*;#*;.#*;.SYNC/" /tmp/ryanw.sldiff.559/ /user/ryanw/project/comlib/trunk/

Which generate the diffs, but the -excludefilespec isn't working.

Try using -x for each one.  -excludefilespec for each will work too, but it's too long to type.

Thanks for the report about -h.  I'll get on that.

-h issue is fixed for next beta drop.
