LabVIEW and hidden .svn folders


Recommended Posts

I decided to put LV installation folder under version control. Mainly so that it is easier to keep in synch different development machines and to be able to do externals with Subversion. Subversion stores info in .svn folders which are hidden, nevertheless LV seems to see them.

I think it slows down some of the labview ops (menus, new... dialog, etc.). :clock:

Has anyone else had any issuses with this approach?

Thanks,

No the only downside I have heard of is that the .svn files are masscompiled (if you place user.lib inside svn, my advice don't do that). Or that the VI analyzer toolkit tests these VIs as well.

You can set SVN to name the folders _svn which are ignored by LabVIEW.

Is this true with any underscore directory name? We've started using the directory name "_Core" for some common files. Would this directory be ignored with a mass compile? And I suppose it would not automatically show up in the palettes either, right?

Are there any other LabVIEW idiosyncrasies with "_" directories?

No, but it will be ignored in the palettes.

And I'm not sure, since I have used 8.x enough, but I believe they are also ignored when you add a folder to a project.
