I'm trying Sourcetree with some Git repositories for Visual FoxPro (VFP) applications. I've set up Beyond Compare as the diff tool.
VFP uses DBFs (tables) with special extensions to store certain kinds of source code, and the resulting files are paired. For example, a form is stored as an SCX/SCT pair.
I have a Beyond Compare extension installed that allows the tool to work with these paired files. When I was previously using Mercurial with Hg Workbench, if I selected both files of the pair, I was able to diff via Beyond Compare.
I'm looking for a way to tell Sourcetree to do the same thing. That is, if I select two files that Beyond Compare recognizes as paired, it should use the extension to open the pair and do the diff. Is that possible?
I installed Beyond Compare on a new computer and couldn't figure out why VFP comparison was not working the same as my old pc. Then I remembered that someone in my office found an add-on called VFP2Text a few years ago. I am curious if your solution is similar.
BTW, my curiosity stems from the fact that you are an esteemed VFP guru and your solution may have more meat to it! :) In any case, it is an opportunity to thank you for all your years of contributing to the Fox community.
