Is DAvE only zipping the current project directory, nothing more?
In other words, can i use
zip -r projectname.zip projectnamedir

and use external project management tools, in the simplest case makefiles and shell scripts if the project is located on a Linux server.

Hi Heinz,

The DAVE project import/export function must be used in order to keep all DAVE relevant information according to "DAVE TIP of the day: Infineon DAVE Project import and export functions".

Additionally I would always select „Select Archive File“ = zip File (makes it easier because you only get one file). Note: Do not unzip the zip file.

But why? And what else is in the zip file?
I like to use a zip exported project, do some changes in it using a script,, and generate a new zipped project.
I only like to know where additional information stored. To have a look at it and to see if it is relevant for the new to genarte archive.

Having a computer, it makes no sense to always use a keyboard and mouse for tasks that can be automated.
(Yes I'm a engineer, not only programmer).

In the simplest case exchanging some header files with constant definitions,
or edit such files using sed, awk or other tools.
More advanced, removing some source files and create a .a lib from the object files, afterwords clean the project.
Of course in this case the starting project is not cleaned.

Anyway, I only want to know what "export" does, nothing more.

Hi Heinz,

As long as you don't make any modification to DAVE/Model folder, should not have any problem.
