Re: [eclipse-dev] How do I get file content comparison in CVS.

Bob, the newsgroup is the preferred forum for such questions.

In answer to your question, in the Synchorize View, in the view menu 
(downfacing triangle on the view), pick "Compare File Contents".

Or, don't delete the CVS meta info :)

        Subject:        [eclipse-dev] How do I get file content comparison in CVS.

I would like eclipse to compare my local project against the project
on a server.  I have a project (under eclipse) on my workstation that 
has been synchronized with the server project.  Everything is 100%
identical, then I "disconnect" and delete CVS metadata.  When I 
"share project" again, I want eclipse to compare the contents of the
local file with the contents of the server file and decide based on the
file's contents if it needs to be updated.  Instead, eclipse is simply
stating the file is in "conflict". 
How do I get a file contents comparison?
Thank You,
