I find I need a merge many times. The best one, and what I use almost all the time, is option 55 in PDM. Nothing else gives me the flexibility of that tool, and I won't apologize for mentioning it on this list. The RSE Extensions are next best for me, but they strip the source sequence and source change date. Sequence is not such a big deal, but change date can be. That will be a loss, in my view, when going to editing in IFS and using subversion, etc. Good directions, but we won't know when individual lines changed the same way we do now - but I may have missed something obvious, like how changes are kept.

Now maybe I should fire up Arcad's plugin emulator and run the PDM option or directly run the MRGSRC - could even create a member option for it - heh!

The thing I get in 55 option is the split SEU screen that shows me the changes - and lets me apply the ones I want to. Again, RSE Extensions seems to do that, but I don't use it for that, for reasons already stated and others I can't think of now. Every other merge tool does the merge, then leaves you with a report saying what was done - you then have to fix things that should not have been done. Guess it depends which end of things you want to spend your time on. Different strokes ---

I still get frustrated with the compare options in WDSCi and go back to
CODE. It just has better functionality for my purposes, IMHO. I'm not fond
of CMPPFM, either.
