Search in Directories should exclude backups

(1/2) > >>

Grahame Grieve:
My Lazarus creates backups in a subdirectory called backup. I didn't make it do that, so I think it's automatically configured this way.

When I do a search in directories, searching through my source code, it'd be really great if it didn't search into the backup directories. So many false matches...

You can configure backup in Tools; Options; Environment --> Backup (you can turn it off or give it another extension i.e.).

Searching tools usually have options to control if you want to search in subdirectories.

As in, Search.. Find in Files.. choose search in directories

I have to include subdirectories, since the code is in subdirectories, but it would be good to ignore backups. And of course, I can reconfigure it, and have, but this is the default settings.

Once upon a time, there was a genius Delphi programmer.
Who ever worked with Delphi knows:
backup is tricky.
These files are only dcu, those only backup, third are needed, those you can doe easily a second time...

As he was programmer, he wrote a backup solution and donated it to public.
Just for backup.
The public has no idea, where the donator came from and what his motivation was.

I learnt his "secret", because I once told him, that his open source is the best thing, I ever could imagine for Delphi backup.

So grab it, it does it all, what we need to save our sources.
