Guiffy Diff/Merge Tool
The Guiffy tool is fully
integrated within the Versions client. Razor
comes with an OEM license that gives the user
permission to run Guiffy within the Razor
product suite. Users may purchase a seperate
license which allows them to run Guiffy outside
The Guiffy tool is bundled with the RazorPC version. The Guiffy tool is a Java based application and is installed together with the applicable JRE.
The Guiffy tool is not bundled with Razor on non-Windows platforms. This product and the appropriate Java runtime engine (JRE) needs to be installed by the user. The product installer and the Java runtime engine may be downloaded from here.
The Guiffy product can be installed in the $RAZOR_HOME directory of the Razor product under the Guiffy sub-directory. You must create the Guiffy sub-directory before installation. Also the JRE used by Guiffy, is installed under the Guiffy installation directory so that it doesn't conflict with an existing JRE installation. The environment variable GUIFFY_HOME must point to the Guiffy directory and defined by the user prior to using the product. You can add the environment variable to the rz_prep files. (i.e. RAZOR_GUIFFY=$RAZOR_HOME/Guiffy)
