  • Need file comparison results by page number and section headings

    I am working on a PDF file comparison automation. Each file can be hundreds of pages and with no defined template as such. One of my automation requirement is to prepare a comparison report that can not only show the differences but also show the page number and the corresponding section of the page in which particular difference exist.

    Has anyone worked on similar kind of requirement before?

    The included PDF conversion does not include page numbers, and our Text Compare does not include page breaks. The conversion process expects an input and an output of a single text file to load in the Text Compare. We could plug any conversion process into BC4, if there is a format which will export as a single Text file in a new layout you want to compare. We have details for using a custom formats here:
    Beyond Compare is a multi-platform utility that combines directory compare and file compare functions in one package. Use it to manage source code, keep directories in sync, compare program output, etc.
