Directories Comparison

The Compare Directories tool allows you to compare and manage changes to files and folders within the structure of your directories. The utility is available from the Tools menu or can be opened as a stand-alone application from the Oxygen XML Developer installation folder (diffDirs.exe).

The directories comparison results are presented as a tree of files and directories. The directories and folders that contain files that differ are expanded automatically so that you can focus directly on the differences. You can merge the contents of the directories by using the copy actions. If you double-click (or press Enter) on a line with a pair of files, Oxygen XML Developer starts a file comparison between the two files, using the Compare Files tool.
Note: The comparison is only available for file type associations that are known by Oxygen XML Developer.
