Notepad ++ Compare Plugin



  • Hi!

    I have compared 2 sets of data points, each with 600k points. I have compared the 2 in notepad with the compare plugin. How can I clear the similar ones and keep the dissmilar ones? Right now I am just deleting the similar ones, one by one, but it is taking too long. Any ideas would be appreciated!

    Thanks! :)

  • Hi,

    Currently you can’t do that directly through Compare Plugin.
    You can use plugin like Python Script and execute a loop on all lines in the file while it is compared, deleting all lines that are not marked (look the SCI_MARKERGET Scintilla message).

  • @pnedev Hi Buddy! First of all thank you for replying!!! I did the steps of downloading the Python software, but now I am stuck. I tried to execute but nothing shows up in the command prompt. I am new to Python and notepad software. Is there any way to show me the steps…do you by any chance have a you tube video??? Thanks!



  • @41213 ,

    I’m about to release a new version of Compare plugin soon (I hope) that will include an option to show only the differences (hide the matches).



  • @41213 I think you misunderstood the meaning of PythonScript plugin. It is https://github.com/bruderstein/PythonScript which already contains the required python parts. If you use N++ before version 7.6 installation is done easiest with PluginManager. Current version is https://github.com/bruderstein/PythonScript/releases/tag/v1.3.0.
