When use this kind of compare, do you see a "Text Compare" dropdown on the upper left? There are 3 options, Default, Text, and IBM i.

I'm doing the "Compare With > Each Other" option as you're saying. I'm highlighting each source from RSE.

Hi Kurt,
I assume you are using the compare from within the editor.
The enhanced compare is when you select the 2 members in the RSE view (might have to use Ctrl-click for the second one, so you don't lose the selection of the first). Then when you right click, you will see "Compare With..." and in the submenu "Each Other". Enjoy!

Hi Edmund,

Sorry to bug you. I hope you see this, and also wait to respond until after 5/23 (9.1, woo!).

You said, "The Compare With Each Other is base Eclipse functionality
(enhanced to know how to ignore sequence numbers)." I'm finding that it
is not ignoring the SrcSeq & SrcDat differences. So when you add a line
at the top, such as a maintenance comment, suddenly the entire document
doesn't match. It's very difficult to go through. Am I missing
something? I don't see an option to ignore those fields when I right-click the source.

I probably should move on to a plug-in, but I enjoy being an RDI purist so I can be confident that anything unusual I run into is an RDi bug and not some issue caused by me adding plug-ins.

Hi Kurt,
The preferences you are showing are for the Lpex Compare which is a separate function.
The Compare With Each Other is base Eclipse functionality (enhanced to know how to ignore sequence numbers).
All you need to do is Right Click and from the menu select 'Ignore White Space'

I like to use the "Compare With - Each Other" option. Unfortunately, what almost always happens is that every line is different because one source it
sees as having all the trailing blanks trimmed, and the other does not. I
have the preferences set to ignore leading, trailing, and "all" blanks, but this still happens.

Preferences:

Compare result (note line 21 on the 2nd source isn't showing the */, but that's because it's off my screen) http://i.imgur.com/agIWJAQ.jpg

Any thoughts?
