Setting this option is meaningful if DiffDog Server runs on a port other than the default As an alternative to setting this option at the command line, you can set it in the Client Configuration File.
Note that, if you set this value at the command line, it takes precedence over the one defined in the configuration file. Prevents the standard output from being displayed at the command line.
Do not display standard output in the terminal window. The value must specify a valid file path on the server machine. Setting this option is meaningful if DiffDog Server runs on a server other than the default localhost. It specifies the left side of the comparison a path to a file or directory accessible to the server. It specifies the middle side of the comparison applicable in a 3-way comparison.
The value must be a path to a file or directory accessible to the server. It specifies the right side of the comparison a path to a file or directory accessible to the server. In case of directory comparisons, the option will apply only to text files in that directory.
Perform a case-insensitive comparison for example, "A" and "a" are treated as equal. The option specifies if blank lines should be ignored in comparison, when comparing text files. Valid values are true and false. By default, this value is false. The option defines how whitespace characters should be treated for comparison.

This is useful, for example, when two different versions exist of the same original file, and you need to cross-compare all versions. Comparison of Microsoft Word or later documents. Microsoft Word is not required to be installed in order to perform such comparisons. Depending on the kind of files you are comparing, you can choose between any of the following comparison modes: Alternatively, you can let the application detect the comparison mode automatically based on file extension.
For even more advanced needs, you can create custom rules to choose a specific mode automatically based on file extension. You can flexibly include or exclude files or directories from a comparison by means of filters.
Additional options are available that help you deal with case-sensitive versus insensitive comparisons, ignoring files based on size or modification time, as well as various ways to treat special characters like spaces, tabs, or carriage returns. You can perform comparisons of recordsets originating from a database table, view, or a custom SQL query.
