I am writing a Beyond Compare Script that output the different text into a report.txt file.  However I want to ignore some of the important text displayed in the report.txt file.  How can I do that?
Here is my BC script:

file-report layout:side-by-side &
options:ignore-unimportant,display-context &
output-to:%3 output-options:html-color %1 %2

I can't find any examples and I don't ahve the software
... BUT ...
I read that you can specify rules (or a rule set) to apply when running the comparison.
Can you create this inthe graphical interface and then reference it when running from the command line?

Running BCQC.EXE on the command line without arguments gives the usage information:

QuickCompare for Beyond Compare 2
Copyright (c) 2005 Scooter Software, Inc.

Syntax: bcqc [options] filename filename

/size, /s = size-only comparison
/crc, /c = CRC32 comparison
/binary, /b = binary comparison
/rules[=rules name], /r = rules-based comparison
/selftest = run a self test (omit filenames)

The /rules switch can optionally include the name of an
existing rules set. If the rules name is omitted the rules
will be picked automatically based on the file names.
