How to ignore LF and CR LF while comparing text files

Session -> Session Settings

Check Compare contents, Rules-based comparison and Override quick test results.

Then these files would be marked the same content.


“As a child I felt myself to be alone, and I am still, because I know things and must hint at things which others apparently know nothing of, and for the most part do not want to know.” ― Carl Gustav Jung, Memories, Dreams, Reflections
