Sometimes when choosing File - Compare files...
I get the same filename in both the boxes for "First file" and "Second File". And I very rarely want to compare a file to itself.
Since I always press Alt+F - M - Enter
quickly I don't realise it until UltraCompare has started and states "Match" even though I know there are differences between the files I intended to compare.
I can also get a file that isn't even opened in UltraEdit to appear in one of the filename boxes, but I'm pretty sure it has to have been used in a compare previously so it exists in the history lists.
Does this happen to anyone else?
I suspect it has to do with the way I sometimes do copies of my Delphi source files adding a ".old", ".older" or even ".new" extension. For example I can have files named "main.pas", "main.pas.old" and "main.pas.older" in the same folder, and it's mainly then that I've noticed it.
