for 4.2.4 or higher,4.2.5,4.2.6 ,it's works , this is the way which makes Always in evaluation mode 。

  1. go to the dir : /Applications/Beyond Compare.app/Contents/MacOS
  2. change the name BCompare to BCompare.bak
  3. touch a file name BCompare , and chmod a+u BCompare
  4. insert BCompare the content :
#!/bin/bash
rm "/Users/$(whoami)/Library/Application Support/Beyond Compare/registry.dat"
"`dirname "$0"`"/BCompare.bak $@
  1. restart bc .

The solution posted by @WcLyic requires you to operate a hex editor. @nvuyenvandau I suggest you use HXD Hex Editor. Open the file, goto the address mentioned and change to the listed value.

It doesn't work anymore... at least in Big Sur

EDIT: It looks like removing the App with AppCleaner, and doing the usual .bak process again, it works

@liguoqinjim

maybe it should use chmod a+x BCompare in Big Sur.
It works.
