Feature Request -An ecompile.cfg option.

Post by Yukiko » Sat Oct 05, 2019 4:31 pm

As we are trying to stay Linux compliant in the Distro as far as file name case is concerned, it would be very helpful if we can have an eCompile option to throw an error on case mismatched file names.

My reason for asking for this feature is that, after making countless commits of both my code and that of others with case mismatch issues, this would help me, and others, from having to recommit "fixes" for code that we thought was good to run on both Windows and Linux. And I am asking that this be an option in ecompile.cfg, not hard coded into eCompile.

Sounds not that bad, something like "ErrorOnFileCaseMissMatch".
Please remind me once in a while ;)

Word on the streets is that Turley is almost done with this feature. Thank you Turley!

Of course this means work for me as well. I'll have to add this to the eCompile page in the Configurator but this is one thing I don't mind adding. :)
