Codewarrior tgt, tdt files and makefiles

Started by Razvan ENACHE January 10, 2006
Dear all,

I am trying to use the Codewarrior tool chain with Sunversion and I am annoyed
by the changes Codewarrior makes to a bunch of binary files, namely *.tgt,
*.tdt, and the project file, just because I open the project! What are these
files used for anyway? Can I safely remove them from configuration management?

Personally, I would prefer working with standard (ASCII) makefiles, but I have
not found yet how to integrated them in Codewarrior. What are your experiences?
Do you have any recommendation?

Thank you,

Razvan


Hi Razvan,
you can delete the whole *_Data folder if you like. This will just cause
a slower build time the next time as everything will need to be rebuilt.
That the mcp is changed every time is unfortunate, the best I came
across about this so far is to make the mcp readonly on the file system.
As soon as you do a real change in the project, CW will show a dialog
clear the readonly flag, but this does not happen for just opening it.

An additional hint:
As if it goes to store/deal with the .mcp file, you can export/import it as
XML file.
That way you can find (if needed) differences using a normal diff tool.
