how to call the compare (and diff too) from the command line

  • how can i call the compare addin from the command line? found an article where there was actually an executable but it doesn’t function as expected.

    also is there a way to call diff from the command line as well?

    As far as I know, you cannot call plugin features from the command line.

    However, I seem to remember some earlier discussion about the topic… search, search. There it is: on April 18, @Ekopalypse described a way to provide user parameters to a plugin. He shows an example of using PythonScript to parse the Notepad++ command-line options. Once you know the user parameter was set on the command line in PythonScript, you can use its capabilities to call features of the Compare plugin (or any other plugin).
