Who we are

We are the developers of Plastic SCM, a full version control stack (not a Git variant). We work on the strongest branching and merging you can find, and a core that doesn't cringe with huge binaries and repos. We also develop the GUIs, mergetools and everything needed to give you the full version control stack.

If you want to give it a try, download it from here.

We also code SemanticMerge, and the gmaster Git client.

How to handle big files with Plastic

So it's basically done like any other file!


Plastic is not affected by the file size like other systems out there.

Keep coding while we take care of your files.

I'm in charge of the Customer Support area.
I deal with complex setups, policies and working methodologies on a daily basis.
Prior to taking full responsibility of support, I worked as software engineer. I have been in charge of load testing for quite some time, so if you want to know how well Plastic compares to SVN or P4 under a really heavy load, I'm your guy.
I like to play with Arduino GPS devices, mountain biking and playing tennis.
You can find me hooked to my iPhone, skate-boarding or learning Korean... and also here @mrcatacroquer.


  1. Is there still a file size limit on the DIFF tool?

  2. Nop, you don't have any size restriction. The file can be as big as you want.

    You do have a restriction with the number of differences MergeTool can handle, if the file exceeds 32K differences the differences won't be displayed. (If I have a file with 32K differences I rather prefer not to see them and go home :P :P :P)
