Pass the file name to 3rd party differencing tool

The following article describes how to use a 3rd party differencing tool: https://www.ptc.com/en/support/article?n=CS217399.

 

However, note that it allows 4 arguments to be passed to the differencing tool, but none of them contains the name of the file.  Specifically, if comparing the working file to a prior revision, then argument 3 or 4 will contain the name of the file.  But if comparing 2 prior revisions of the file, then arguments 3 and 4 just contain pathname information to the temporary version of the file that Integrity creates in the SIDist directory.  But there is no way to get the name of the actual file.

 

A 3rd party differencing tool would want to have the name of the actual file so that, for example, it can put it in the title bar (e.g., "comparing version 1.1 and 1.2 of file MyFile.txt").

 

Can the developers please add the capability of passing the actual file name to the 3rd party differencing tool?
