Script ifs_git_diff.cmd/sh

The script ifs_git_diff.cmd/sh is located in component fndbas/build folder, and will in a build home be located in the build folder.

When extracting the changed files between two git commit hashes, the ifs_git_diff script should be used. The script will list all changed files between the fromtag and the totag hashes. The list will be spooled to a file that will be used to copy the files from the git repo to a delivery using ifs_create_build_structure script. Note: The git repo must be checked out on the totag commit hash when copying the actual files.

The script accepts three parameters.
