Hi Richard,

It's basically an .ini file with all the source files listed and all the compiler options etc, but it also has ephemeral stuff in it, such as "time of last compile", "size of last window opened", "10 previous search results". That sort of stuff.

I did this and now have an init.bat script to copy said template to the real file; I have a corresponding script, outit.bat, which copies (just) the important stuff back to the template file. In this way, if only ephemeral stuff has changed, (T)SVN sees this file as unchanged, which is what I want.

Take a look at client side hook scripts:
