2nd pane parameter

Posted By: Laurent Duchastel de Montrouge <>

With Ztree, I would like to have a new batch parameter that handle the directory name of the second pane. Here is why: I often compare identical files at binary level (to check for possible corruption), but not located within the same subdirectory structure So here what I have to do:

For example: I have hundreds of files files to compare in two directories, such as:

C:\DATA\MYDOCS\DUMMY.WPD with F:\BACKUP\98-07-10\DATA\MYDOCS\DUMMY.WPD

etc.

Here what I have to do:

1. Two panes opened, I compare the 1st directory with the 2dn (Alt-F4).

2. For all tagged files (same name, same date, same size), I create a batch command (Ctrl-B) with the following mask: fc /b %4.%5 %1

3. I then moved this batch to the other directory.

4. I run the batch. Being now located in the second pane, the batch can
compare two files with the same name but located in different directories.

Having a parameter that stands for the second pane's directory will not
only allow me to avoid the move part, but also to have a batch line that
will avoid me to create batch file for individual files.

What do you think ?
