How to use cwRsync in windows?

Hello,

I am new to all that.

I just want to compare two huge file and find the difference file. I want result exactly like: cygwin diff utility.

After a lot of searches, I direct to this forum. I am using win 7 64 bit and I recently download: cwRsync_5.4.1_x86_Free.

Now, I have readme text file that say: Unzip archive contents to a directory, update the supplied batch file
cwrsync.cmd. That's all you need to be able to start rsync from a command line.

How can I "update the supplied batch file cwrsync.cmd" and in which command line I can run it? windows? or cygwin?

I want steps or pre requirements to use rdiff.

 

thanks

Alaa

Rsync is not a diff tool - it is for copying a file from source to destination by using its own network effective algorithm. Just search for rsync usage on the web, form a proper rsync command for your needs and add it to the cwrsync.cmd file to run it properly in a windows environment.

That post is about the tool rdiff which uses librsync. cwRsync is rsync on Windows, not an implementation of librsync library.
