RE: How to handle EXE

        Hi all,

        Each time I compile my project a new 8MB EXE is generated.

        I wouldn't like to commit it to svn each time I make a build,
because 100 commits will become 800 Mbytes.

        But I DO want to commit it SOMETIMES, to have an available EXE
for release versions.

        I tried committing the EXE only when needed, but this way I
always have it listed on the status as modified, which is annoying.

        More annoying is with Tortoise, where I always have a "!" mark
on the project's folder, due to the not-committed exe.

        I'll appreciate your advices about this.



Don't put it in your project that way. create a folder in the
repository that just has release binaries and periodically update them
by copying the built files into the appropriate workspace and
committing. Consider a structure like this:
MyProject --> trunk
    |---Release Binaries
On the other hand, why do you want to store the binaries at all? Are
they shared DLLs that will be referenced by other projects? I don't
think it is generally a good idea to store the binary result, but
instead tag your source so that the binaries of any version can be built
on demand.
