  • Text Comparison:How to mask first 6 characters using command line

    Hi,
    I want to compare two cobol files. These files have 6 digit line numbers in the first 6 columns. Differences should ignore these line numbers in both files. I was able to do this using the GUI mode of BC2. Can I do the same using command line parameters.?

    Hello,

    Our included BC3 cobol rule has the first 6 digits defined as a Line Number already. Your session settings can then either mark this as Important or Unimportant. Set the Session Setting defaults to mark this as Unimportant if you wish it to always be unimportant.

    If you are referring to BC2, then the Importance is controlled by the loaded rule, and you can pick with the /rules=xxx (documented in the BC2 Help file under Command Line and Scripting: Command Line Switches section.

    Does this help with your current workflow? Let us know if you have any questions.
