Managing 15,000 files
« on: April 30, 2008, 11:24:57 pm »

   I'm working in a code-base of 15,000+ files, and although I won't be working in all of them by any means, I'm currently in a role where I'll intermittently need to find things amongst them.

So, is there a way that I can configure slick edit to have "views" so to speak?  i.e. have different active filesets indexed and tagged.


Say I primarily work in 3 leaf folders, and include a couple include folders, I'd like to configure view_reduced:
srcfolder1, srcfolder2, srcfolder3, includes

Then, some task comes along where I need to switch to view_full, which is the entire codebase.  I click a couple things, switch things around, and now I'm using the full 15,000 files for searching and tagging purposes.

Does something like this exist, and is there a help document I can look at to learn it?

Consider to create a couple of workspaces as different views/tagging units to your code base containing a different subset of projects. Switching workspaces is quite fast and should be convenient for you as well.

I'd propose to check the Help: 'Workspaces, Projects and Files'. In additon have a look at this very useful thread.

You want to save/restore files and their window positions? I've got a macro to do that, though it would take some doing to extract it from my lib as a standalone.
