[BZ#700919] CLI - Opening with Single File parameter fails silently
Submitted by Timothy C. Quinn
I have a usecase where I launch a compare tool from a single file using a shell extension in windows like tortiseXXX tools. When a single file is used the my current compare tool will load with the one file loaded and prompt the users to add more files. This is very handy and something that I use very frequently.
Is it possible to update Meld to accept a single file parameter and load the tool in the "New Comparison" dialog in "File Comparison" mode with the file name pre-loaded in the first file selector?
FYI, Ultra compare can operate in this way and would like to switch my CM tools over to using Meld but I am held back because of this one feature.
In a related note, the tool fails silently in Windows 2007 when a single parameter is passed. I all I see is a flash of a window and then nothing.
