You can extract netlists and do a net compare (between two Sch netlists), this is possibly the closest you will get in the P99 environment. You can also do a diff on the Sch if saved in ASCII format but this will possibly produce garbage output as there is no guaranteed order in an ASCII Sch.


Well, you could run the ASCII output through CMsort (search for "CMsort") and then compare. (the sorted files will not be usable, but differences *will* be, most likely, real differences.)

But usually differences in netlists are what count, since the rest is pretty much fluff -- differences in BOMs would, of course, be discoverable at the spreadsheet level.

Would be really nice to have a really good graphical diff engine bewteen revs of sch or PCBs.

Indeed. Would not be too difficult to implement, either, I would think.
