Command Line SQLCompare

Hi Jamie,

There are no compare options in SQL Compare or Data Compare that you can
use. Everything is done interactively through the GUI. What we can offer is
the SQL Toolkit, which is an SDK for our products. If you can use ActiveX
technology in the Windows implementation of Perl, you could build a solution
around this. I have seen the Red Gate COM objects used successfully with
J(ava)Script in the past, but I'm unsure if you have this capability in
Perl.

For more information on SQL Toolkit:

Thanks,

    Hi Jamie,

    Okay. But be sure to check with us in a few weeks. We're going to change
    the way that the Toolkit is sold and priced. It most likely won't even be
    called Toolkit any more.
