everytime when i build a C file, i have to delete the hex manually.

otherwise source boost wil build, but not replace the hex file

 

is there a option in source boost that i overlookd?

No, the .hex file should be overwitten.

 

Please check the time date stamp on the file to see if its being updated after a build. Remember to hold the control key down while clicking the 'B' button to force a complete unconditional rebuild. Otherwise only files that are part of the project and have been changed will be re-built.

 

Regards

Being dimmer than most, I often SaveAs another name and then keep on editing my code. When I notice that the hex file is not changing I realize I am editing the new file but compiling the old file ( which has not changed). The obvious symptom is when I click Compile and it says DONE without doing anything. :)

Freek,

This is one of the common mistake most first time users do in SB IDE.

I do the following steps to edit old files.

 

1. First click the file button on the tool bar and select the file you want to edit.

2. After editing the file save it.

3. Now close all files on the window.

4. Goto the project button on the toolbar.

5. select the project you want to build by clicking on the appropriate file.

6. Now your poject is selected and ready for build.

7. make sure about the tool suite and target chip by looking at the bottom of the

source boost IDE status bar.

at this point your window is blank.

8. Now select the file again clicking the file button or open button from the tool bar.

9. To cross check again if its the program you are going to compile, press the project button & see if the name of your file is right at the top of the list of project.

10. Now press Build button.

 

One more suggestion, Take a printout of source boost IDE user's manual and the compiler reference manual. They are really very useful.

Freek,

Not only first time users,

without any type of version control available one tends to do this

without thinking because you dont want to lose the original incase

you need to go back.

 

i am hoping my request for sometype of version control support gets

added for precisely this reason, as i tend to do this quite often and then

slap myself later for being silly.
