Plastic SCM blog: Unified diff of a branch

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/11/03

Too bad I bumped into this a long time after having been a regular PlasticSCM user: [] Plastic SCM blog: Unified diff of a branch:

Learn how to create a custom action to run a unified diff operation for a Plastic SCM branch.

It is an open source tool called unifiedbranchdiff.exe at github, and seems based on a cm path for getting paths, and cm patch for generating the actual patch, and needing external GNU tools diff and patch (hopefully it also works with more recent versions than the woefully outdated 2007 Win32 versions of [WayBack] DiffUtils 2.8.7 for Windows and [WayBack] Patch 2.5.9 for Windows).

html – Is it possible to specify a starting number for an ordered list? – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/11/03

Since I keep forgetting this has been possible since the introduction of html 5: [WayBack] html – Is it possible to specify a starting number for an ordered list? – Stack Overflow:

If you need the functionality to start an ordered list (OL) at a specific point, you’ll have to specify your doctype as HTML 5; which is:

<!doctype html>

With that doctype, it is valid to set a start attribute on an ordered list. Such as:

<ol start="6">

Since Delphi still does not include a TDateTimeHelper: use the one by colini which has tests

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/11/03

These are quite OK: [WayBack] GitHub – colinj/TDateTimeHelper: Helper record for TDateTime type in [WayBack] DateTimeHelper.pas with DUnitX tests in [WayBackTDateTimeHelper.Tests.pas.

Via: [WayBackDoes Delphi XE 10.2.2 ship with type helpers for TDateTime type? Or do I need to implement my own. – Graeme Geldenhuys – Google+.

It got even promoted at [WayBack] Delphi XE3: Record Helpers for Intrinsic Types.
