What's the best way to make backup copies of my mxml files in
Flex Builder 2?
Ideally I want to create a backup folder inside my project
then just make copies of the mxml files I'm working on and drop
them in there.
The issue here is that if I do that the compiler still seems
to include those files at compile time. i.e. it errors if 1.
there's some wrong code in them or 2. it can't find it's resources
Also if I rename the .mxml files to say.bak the compliler
complains that it deosn't like the file type.
So how do I get the compiler to ignore my \backup folder and
You should look into creating a SVN repository or using a SVN
service. That way, you don't have to keep copies... You just check
in your file when you're done with changes, and the versioning
system keeps every revision you've ever made.
