  • Need BC to compare content, but dont have files...

    HI, I'm a licensed user and I there is one thing I really need BC to be able to do, but I don't think it does so at the moment: I just need to compare the contents of two files, as opposed to comparing two files themselves. In other words, I just want to be able to paste some code into the left hand window, and paste some other code into the right hand window, click a button, and I want BC to point out the differences. At the moment, what I am forced to do is create two separate files based on the code I want comparing and then get BC to compare it - very tedious. Just to reiterate: the code I want to compare is not in a file.

    Is there any way I can do this?


    ps - am on version 2.2.7

    Yes, you can do this with the Open Clipboard feature.

    In the File Viewer, select File | Open Clipboard to load the clipboard contents into the "current" side. Then copy the second bit of code, click the oppsite side in the File Viewer, and select Open Clipboard.
