It would be nice to be able to define different commands depending on the file extension (or even more flexible: depending on a regexp), and depending on whether the arguments are files or directories. This way, a special directory comparison tool could be called for directories and *.doc files could be compared with another tool than e.g. *.cpp files.

    meta-diff is already doing this.

    I know. I was implying to merge meta-diff and diff-ext. But if you feel these tools should stay separate (which also has its advantages) that would be perfectly fine with me and you could close this issue.

    I do not mind to merge meta-diff and diff-ext.
    It would require a new setup program though to enable users to specify diff tool.

    By "merge" I meant to integrate meta-diff's functionality into the diff-ext source code, not to bundle the applications into a single installer. Thinking about it, a source code merge might not be such a good idea, the two projects already exist independently and work fine.

    Regarding the bundling, we already planned to exchange the shell extension that comes with meta-diff with diff-ext, so we will eventually include the diff-ext distribution into the meta-diff installer, if you don't mind.

    I'm closing this as meta-diff will be eventually bundled with diff-ext.
