Ask a question

Is there a functionality similar to svn diff?

When using svn diff, I can compare multiple files at once and get a list of files with annotations.
Is there a way to produce that in RTC, preferably with a similar formatting ?

A typical result of svn diff look like:

$ svn diff -r 578:580

The scm command line has an "scm diff" command that provides similar output. The semantics differ a bit from the "svn diff" because of the difference in nature between Jazz SCM and SVN. You can use "scm help diff" to see what options are available.
