Comparing Delphi Formularfiles

Postby AWeber » Tue Nov 17, 2015 7:18 am

Hello,
we are useing WinMerge to Compare / Merge Delphi plaintext formularfiles - aka .dfm. Sometimes we have
old formulars saved with Delphi 5 - in ansi - in the current we are working with XE2 Unicode - were lot more characters
are encoded as hashtag "#"Code ...

For example would it be possible that WinMerge would compare these two lines as equal?

Old Delphi 5:
LabelText.Strings = (
'de=Sortierschlüssel')

Newer Delphi XE2:
LabelText.Strings = (
'de=Sortierschl'#252'ssel')

Any hints or ideas are welcome ?

with best regards

A. Weber

PS.: Please continue this great software it saved us allready a lot of time and trouble.

Interesting questions AWeber. Just thought I'd bump this to see if anyone has any answers for us.
