The command line options are simple switches and are optional. If not specified, the option is off. For best results, it is recommended that you specify the /cD or /cF option, to explicitly instruct DiffDog that you are comparing either files or directories. Note, however, that, if you use DiffDog as a differencing tool for a source control system, some control systems will not accept additional arguments except the file names.
Although they are organized into groups, the options listed below can appear in any order. The options are not case-sensitive, and you can use either the minus sign (-) or the slash (/) before options. The command line syntax is as follows:
DiffDog.exe [source name1 name2 [name3]] [general options] [compare mode] [compare options] [filter filtername] [directory compare options] [file-filter file filtername]
names of files or directories to compare
name of the third file to compare (applicable only for three-way comparisons, see Three-Way Comparisons).
|/iC||ignore case but not in node names|
|ignore node types (Attributes, CData, Comments, Processing Instructions, Doctype, XML declaration)|
|/iOA||ignore order of attributes|
|/iOC||ignore order of child nodes|
|ignore order of child nodes and add attributes as comparison criteria (All Attributes, Specific Attributes as defined in Group groupname, Add Element Text as Comparison Criteria)|
name of predefined filter
name of predefined file-filter
|Note:||Some Comparison Options apply to XML Comparison Mode only (for example, /dD, /iN and /iNT). These options will therefore be ignored if the [compare mode] option is not /mX.|
