VCM Suite has a very powerful file comparison utility. Using the
compare feature of VCM Suite will give you a very quick overview of
differences between any two files you may have.
Major points of VCM Suite file compare:
- You can compare any files regardless of make/model/operating
- When comparing files of different operating system, only
parameters of similar types are compared
- For tables to be compared they must be of the same dimensions
in both files
- DTC differences will not be compared.
After you open a file for comparison, you will have 3 separate
views for display.
You can access these views from the tool bar in the main VCM Editor
window and also under the compare menu.
The views are also located in each table display you open. When you
toggle the compare view of a table display it will only affect that
table display. To change the display view of all your open
parameters you must use the main VCM Editor window view states.
