I've just revised a number of Help pages using RH7. These
pages originally were in RH5. I access and update my files via the
Perforce configuration management system.
For technical reasons, I've had to work offline. Now it's
time to sync up my workspace with the depot. I've only worked on
about eight files or so, but I'm concerned that a great many files
were actually updated behind the scenes as a result of porting the
project over from RH5 to RH7.
Here's my question:
I'm new to RH, and I'm afraid I'm unfamiliar with the myriad
file extensions in the application. I'm using RH7 HTML, and my
output is an .htm file. Would anyone know if I can just diff the
files I've actually "worked" on (i.e. the actual HTML pages), or
are there other files -- fpj files, project files, SSL files, HHK
files, IGN files, PPF files, SYN files (you get the idea) -- that I
must diff and mark for edit using Perforce?
If you upgraded while away from the office, every topic got
updated as RH7 rewrites the code. Plus a whole bunch of RH files
get updated. I would not consider mixing and matching the files.
Archive the old office project and put your local updated version
on the office PC.
I am not familiar with using Perforce. If that is going to
force you to compare files, you should consider something like
