[Mac] PlasticSCM configuration

Recommended Posts

How do you properly set up the launch command for the diff and merge tools in PlasticSCM on OSX?

 

I've looked through the manual and searched the forums with no solution. I can't get PlasticSCM to launch SemanticMerge. It's probably because I don't have the diff/merge tool configured properly in PlasticSCM.

 

I've added it as an "External diff tool" with the command:

"/Applications/semanticmerge.app" -s="@sourcefile" -sn="@sourcesymbolic" -d="@destinationfile" -dn="@destinationsymbolic" -i="@comparationmethod" -e="@fileencoding" -edt=default

 

I've also tried supplying semanticmerge.exe inside the app folder, with no luck.

Hi,

 

Please could you try runnig::

 

"/Applications/semanticmerge.app/Contents/MacOS/semanticmerge" -s="@sourcefile" -sn="@sourcesymbolic" -d="@destinationfile" -dn="@destinationsymbolic" -i="@comparationmethod" -e="@fileencoding" -edt=default

Carlos.

manu:

oh sorry! I'm using X11 GUI.

 

calbzam: Thank you! I tried that but Semanticmerge launches and closes (crashes) right away when I try to merge items.

 

Also, Does SemanticMerge work as a diff tool as well? Or only a merge tool?

Hi,

 

It only works as merge tool. I think that´s the issue. In the last SM release we show a help message instead of a crash (you should be using the previous one version).

 

Configuring SM as external merge tool are also experiencing the crash issue?

Carlos.

I'm still experiencing the crash whenever I try to merge.

 

Currently, I only have it set up as a merge tool, in the X11 PlasticSCM client.

 

It's set as "External merge tool", and I have it set to use files with the pattern ".cs" (without quotes).

 

Am I doing anything wrong?
