Git/Version Control

Recommended Posts

You can certainly use version control.  Version control apps typically work with any type of document.  However, as a binary document, CTL files cannot be diffed, which is certainly one advantage of version control apps, and perhaps why you are hoping to use one.  We have thought about ways we could make DAQFactory documents diff'able and hopefully will implement something soon.  For now, you can get parts of your ctl doc into a diff'able format by doing a few things:

1) do FIle - Dump script to File and save a copy of all your script and store that along with the ctl doc.  This file is a text file so definitely diff'able.

2) for channels, go to the channel table and do an Export.  This will create a CSV file which is also diff'able.
