Comparing DBs

Original Post by: jcabrera Thu Jun 27 10:26:01 2013


I'm trying to compare two flt files, but I'm facing some problems. While using a binary comparer like fc (windows file comparer) on two identical files (consecutive "Save as..." on the same DB), the tool output said that the files are different. Is there any way (script or tool) for compare two flt files accurately?

Thank you.

Thanks for all the good info you have provided. Sorry I have not been able to spend much time on this lately. I'll try to carve out some time to look over this problem and let you know if I figure anything out.

Thanks for your patience.

In the end, I just translated the Python code to C++ (with some modifications related to the polymorphing attributes on python), and it works fine.

Thank you very much for your assistance, and don't worry about it anymore, I consider it solved (thanks for the python script, without it, it couldn't be possible). If you want, I can paste the C++ code here in order to share it with the community, but it's nearly the same code as python with a huge switch for selecting the proper type for every attribute.

Thank you for that... Sorry I was not more help once you explained the problem you were having with the Script. Know that the information you provided will help us track this down going forward. And for that I am greatly appreciative to you.


Is anyone able to post the script that is being mentioned in this thread?
