OOTB all post processor .tcl, .def, and .pui files live in ...CAMresource\postprocessor

 

How do you store previoius versions of postprocessor files?  archive subfolders?  

 

This question is in conjunction with my previous question on defining the file paths in the template_post.dat file

You can set backup for each save, or for last save. For first case each version of postprocessor will be saved in new folder.

As they are (usually) all text files, I use source code management tools (CVS at first, now SVN) to store history.

Allows me to check back in time to se what changed & when, assuming you commit changes as you work.

 

Note I develop posts in a DIFFERENT folder (not the one the "real users" use) and only move to production folder when I'm done testing the change. (so I can leave a post in a "broken" state while I fix another crisis...)

And I also use a "moog_post_version" variable, which is output in a comment in the header (and changed as the post changes) so I have that info available when comparing old output vs. new

Sounds very interesting!

I tried to google for SVN. Is this what you mean:

?

I like that, I think I will encourage them to add the post name, to the post output for reference too.

I believe https://subversion.apache.org/ is the "home" site.

Tortoise subversion (https://tortoisesvn.net/) is a somewhat easier ("windows-ized") variant.

 

I believe both are free to use anywhere (even in commercial environment)
