I was using Zenmap (SVN) and trying out the Compare Results feature.  I 
opened two XML files I wanted to view the differences between (mainly 
just to test it out), but nothing happened.  When I clicked "Open in

files to diff.

Brokenness Question: Doesn't Zenmap support straight XML files or just 
the USR thing?  I thought it used both, but maybe this is causing some 
of my problems.

Hi Kris. I think I have fixed this.

There was indeed a bug that prevented plain Nmap XML files from being
compared. The comparison window was checking the Nmap output of each
selected scan against the empty string to see if a scan had been
selected or not. When you loaded a scan whose output *is* the empty
string (a plain Nmap XML output file), it falsely assumed that you
hadn't selected a scan yet.


Great, thanks.  It seems to work fine now.

You still don't get anything from the HTML browser view, because that
only compares the text outputs. Now it gives a more helpful error
message explaining the situation instead of claiming you haven't
selected two scans yet.


Oh, gotcha--I didn't know it only diff'd the text.  The new error message
definitely helps :)

David


Thanks again,
