Specifying URLs/paths on command line



Ellié Computing Merge accepts URLs as arguments for comparisons, not only local paths.

Here is what Ellié Computing Merge does when it takes an argument which must be interpreted as a file or folder location:

  • check if the argument is "-" (a single hyphen sign), if the argument is for input, the location is standard input, else standard output
  • check if the argument has a supported scheme ( ftp, ftps, any built-in SCC plugin) or an absolute path (starting with '/' on Unix, with \\  (double anti-slash) or "L:\" (letter colon anti-slash)), and makes an URL from that
  • check if the argument is relative (starting with "~/" (home directory)), or to current directory (anything else).
