scm diff on a snapshot


Bernd van Oostrum (21725671) | asked Dec 28 '10, 9:57 a.m.
Using scm.exe compare, I can retrieve the changes between the current contents of a repository workspace, and a snapshot created earlier.

This way I receive the changed files.

To analyze the changes in the file, I can use scm.exe diff
However, scm.exe diff doesn't accept 'snapshot' as a selection type... Are there any other diff - possibilities available?

Regards,
Bernd.

I have opened workitem 148637 to take in snapshot as a selector for the diff command.

The workaround for this would be to create a workspace out of a snapshot and then run the diff. Another way would be to create a baseline on the workspace whenever you create a snapshot and then run the diff of the file against that baseline.
