Guys, does anyone know of a utility to compare two Foxpro project files?

Mostly, I am looking for an automated way to check to see the differences in file names in two products.

Projects are just DBF tables and you may create following query to check for filename differences:

USE Project1.PJX
USE Project2.PJX IN 0

SELECT LEFT(name, 80) FileName, type  FROM Project1 WHERE name NOT in (SELECT name FROM Project2)

SELECT LEFT(name, 80) FileName, type  FROM Project2 WHERE name NOT in (SELECT name FROM Project1)

If you are interested in filename without path, use JUSTFNAME() function:

SELECT LEFT(JUSTFNAME(name), 80) FileName, type  FROM Project2 WHERE name NOT in (SELECT JUSTFNAME(name) FROM Project1)

etc.

...to see the differences in file names in two products....

Hmm, same names does not mean same version and perhaps even not same classes. Such a project comparison is of limited use. If you aim towards project source versioning, you can use Visual Source Safe with foxpro, which is outdated but would still work.

http://fox.wikis.com/wc.dll?Wiki~VisualSourcesafeIntegration

The general goal of a source versioning integration is to maintain a project and be able to work on it in a team of developers, also keep certain versions eg stable production, beta, development. All this without independant scattered copies but a central repository of the project files, which also holds information about who has checked out files for what reasons and what changes have been made for what reasons when the changes are check in again.

Bye, Olaf.

source code control is the general name, not source versioning, sorrry.
