Comparison of PowerBuilder objects cannot be achieved by comparing exports of objects, as the sequence of scripts and controls is not fixed. As a result, comparisons have to be done on a portion by portion basis. This is what the first two comparison pages do. They leverage the functionality of the DOS utility FC in order to compare portions.



Common options

Show Names Only

When this option is checked, if a difference is recognize, only the name of the object/portion is included in the output. If the option is unchecked, the name is listed as a header, and a comparison is included below.

Scripts/Variables Only

When checked, only scripts and global, shared and instance variable portions are compared. This will exclude system portions and attribute definitions.

Ignore Horizontal Spacing

Leading spaces and tabs are stripped off for the comparison when this option is checked.

Ignore Vertical Spacing

Blanks lines are removed before the comparison when this option is checked.

Ignore Header/Prototype

The function prototype is excluded from the comparison when this option is checked.

Ignore Comments

When checked, comments are removed from the portion before it is compared.

Ignore Object When Modified Dates Match

With this option, objects’ modified dates are compared before evaluating the objects. If the dates match, no indexing or comparison is done on the objects.

Ignore Object When Sizes Match

With this option, objects’ sizes are compared before evaluating the objects. If the sizes match, no indexing or comparison is done on the objects.
