The FILTR (File Inventory for Loading, Transfer, and Recovery) automates CVS functions for personal use, allowing a user to maintain a watch on any directory, mirroring it in an intermediate working directory and taking care of all import, add, delete, and update calls to the CVS repository. No changes or additions are made to the directory under watch. The user can revert a watched directory to any previous saved state with a button click, or call up one or several past versions of a file. Groups can also make use of the same repository for file sharing.
ZFolder2Product takes the contents of a Zope folder and creates a custom Zope Product, which then re-creates the entire folder contents when installed. The advantage of using ZFolder2Product over a normal Zope exportation is that the folder contents are saved in external files usable within a version control system like CVS. After re-importing the files, you can edit them using the Zope Management Interface and export them back to the filesystem.
ECMerge compares and merges files and folders, side-by-side or 3-way. It provides syntax coloring for C/C++, Java, HTML, ASP, PHP, and many other programming languages. It can save your work at an intermediate state and restart it later. It can generate Unix patches and XML/HTML reports between files. A shell extension is provided under Windows. PDF, Word, and ZIP documents can be compared using converters.
