Compare/Replace with Base [message #22980] Sat, 28 June 2008 13:09 Go to next message

Is there a function in subversive that's similar to subclipse's "Compare
with Base"? This is a compare/replace with the version you checked out, and
it's cached locally so this requires no network access.

I use Compare with Base and Replace with Base all the time, and I have to
say it's the single best feature of subclipse over CVS. It's tremendously
valuable for me.

In our environment two things happen relatively often:
- I tried something out or added a bunch of debug code. Then, after
isolatingt the problem, I clean everything up using replace with base.

- I want to verify my code changes before checking in, so I do a compare
with base. Not only is that a lot faster than going to the network to
compare with the last repository version, it's also better because I am not
really interested at this point in "incoming changes" or changes that others
may have done to the same files. There are hardly ever any conflicts and
even if there were I would much rather verify (and clean up) my outgoing
changes in one step and deal with the conflicts in a second step.

I didn't see this in subversive last time I checked, just wondering.

Sorry I am not using subversive now, but one bug (which I reported) makes it
impractical for me at the moment.

Cheers. Nik

Hello Nikolaus,

You can compare your folders and files with the working copy base version
using pop-up menu "Compare With->Base from Working Copy" action. "Replace
with->Base from Working Copy" action is the same as "Revert" action. So,
you can found it at: "Team->Revert".
