Hi,

   

Looking in my project directory, I can see two .cyprj files:

   
        
  • MyProject.cyprj
  •     
  • MyProject.cyprj.MyUserName
  •    
   

What is the second file for? Should it be checked into the SVN? Does it contain any actually important info?  The reason I ask is this:

   

I develop firmware on two PCs. I use my desktop for most firmware development. But sometimes I need to debug a PSoC out in the field. So I also have an SVN checkout of the firmware on a laptop. I edit the code on the laptop, and check in the code when I'm done, and update it onto my desktop again.

   

I have two different usernames on those two PCs, and so there are two different cyprj.MyUserName files, one on each PC. If they contain important information about my project, then that's a problem.  What's going on?

   

Many thanks

The second file contains your current settings as opened files etc. When a different user works with the project his settings will be saved under his name. Not really needed to back it up in SVN.
