Group all files except *.fcfx in directory

Post by MJU »

Maybe a strange feature, but would it be possible to add all other files that Flowcode generates in a single file?

In the directory where the FCFX file is stored, the other files are visible too.
For every project there are *.cof *.elf *.hex ... and so on files generated.
Wouldn't it be fine if all these files were contained in, for example a *.zip or *.rar-file?

In that case the directory's would remain clean and we could extract them if we needed them..

Maybe there could be a option to add automatic cleanup the compiler files to be removed after .hex generation, so .fcfx file for Flowcode and .hex for programming targets are only left?

Does any stand-alone programmer anymore use .elf files?
Ill just keep the good work up!

Thanks - these are good ideas that are already on our lists.

Some of these files are required during ICD, so they can't be totally removed in all situations. An alternative suggestion has been to put all intermediate files into a separate working folder (either directly off the project file itself, or in a common location), so only the FCFX and HEX files remain.

Please don’t. I regularly use the other files.
Automatic creation of a subdir where everything (except the main file) is stored (including backup copies of the fcfx) would be better imho.

I think putting the supporting files in folder below the project works, as for those advanced users who need the files can still access them but for the bulk of users the main flowcode and .hex files are still visible and uncluttered in the parent directory. J.
