In the Syncro SVN Client there are three types of files that can be checked for
differences: text files, image files, and binary files. For the text files and
image files you can use the built-in Compare view.
Figure 3.59. Compare View
When comparing text, the differences are computed using a line
differencing algorithm. The view can be used to show the differences between two
files in the following cases:
After obtaining the outgoing status of a file with a Refresh
operation, the view can be used to show the differences between your
working file and the pristine copy. In this way you can find out
what changes you will be committing.
After obtaining the incoming and outgoing status of the file with
the Synchronize operation, you can examine the exact differences
between your local file and the HEAD revision file.
You can use the Compare view from the History view to compare the
local file and a selected revision or compare two revisions of the
If in any of the cases one of the involved files cannot be
loaded then you will be prompted with a dialog informing you about the file that
cannot be opened. The Compare view contains two editors. Edits are allowed only
in the left editor and only when it contains the working copy file. To learn
more about how the view can be used in the day by day work you can read the
section View differences.
