I have attempted working with BinDiff to compare files and save the output, but unfortunately I am unable to save it to anything other than a .BinDiff or .BinExport file type. To try and counter this problem I attempted using another IDA plug-in, PatchDiff2. I am running into the same problem with this software. I can get the comparison and it is exactly what I want but I have no means of sending it to a text,pdf,or html file (which I need it to be). I am running IDA 6.5 PatchDiff 2.0.10b and BinDiff 4.0.

EDIT: I understand that this is open source, however I am wondering if there is a built in plug-in to simply save the results as a text file, pdf, html etc.

PatchDiff2 is open-source, so you can edit it yourself to write the output to a file.

  • What file would I edit exactly? patchdiff2.plx? I am running linux ubuntu 12.04 Commented Jan 3, 2014 at 15:40
  • It's open-source. See the link I posted above. Commented Jan 3, 2014 at 15:44
  • I understand that, I am still quite new to this field and I was wondering if you have any recommendations on how to go about doing this. Would it require IDAPython? How would I compile the various components to recreate the plug-in? Commented Jan 3, 2014 at 15:46
