MSDiff exclusions:<Default Excludes> doesn't seem to work

(1/2) > >>

jporkkahtc:
Even with this as an exclusion, mfdiff compares lots of binary files.

Dan:
Interesting.  Can you send me a screenshot?

jporkkahtc:
Sure.

Clark:
Add .pyc to your Binary language mode extension list.

Note that Diff does not fully support <Binary Files> where the contents of the files are checked. Instead it checks if the file extension matches one of the ones listed in your Binary language mode. This is a limitation.

Dan:
Assuming pyc is not associated with your Binary mode, we set this as binary because of it's size.  You can change the size on the DIFFzilla setup dialog.

Why do we not exclude it?  Because the binary files are excluded when they're listed and we don't look at this size when we create the list.
