ITSBITS Catapult Garage Software
Make Project

Purpose Of The Tool

In the ITSBITS® Catapult Garage you can use the "Make Project" tool to build a "project." The project will contain the path to all files in one or more directories you've specified. This list of file paths will be saved in a file you specify as the project file. Other Project-oriented tools will then use the project file to determine what files they work on.

Please note that this tool was greatly enhanced in version 2.0 of the Catapult Garage software. If you are still using Version 1.n, we encourage you to download the curent version at your earliest opportunity.

You can also append the files in one or more directories to an existing project.

Always be sure to keep a record of your project-file name and what it includes.

Make A Project Now


Begin by clicking the upper Browse button to name your project file--the one you want to create or append to.

Next, browse for or enter the directory that is to be added to your project. We recommend you use the OK button on the browse dialog just to be sure you typed it correctly...it's much easier to correct such an error here than later and it could save you lots of time. Once you have the directory entered correctly, click the "Add directory to project" button. Note that the directory appears in the list box.

You may add other directories to the project at this time. Simply repeat the last step.

At this point you may force use of only one, two, or three kinds of files. Simply enter the file extension, e.g., .bmp or .txt, in the 3 boxes indicated. Alternatively, you can include only binary or image files in the project by clicking on the appropriate box so there's an "x" in the check box.

In like manner, you can exclude one, two, or three kinds of files. Simply enter the file extension, e.g., .bmp or .txt, in the 3 boxes indicated. Alternatively, you can exclude binary or image files from the project by clicking on the appropriate box so there's an "x" in the check box.

Once you have specified the name for your project file, the directories to scan into the project, and any file-include or file-exclude limitations, you are ready to create your project file. Click on the "Process" button to start the build.

Depending upon the size of the build, it may take several minutes to complete. Please, be patient. You can use ALT+Tab to go about doing other things while this job completes. When the processing has finished you will see a report telling you how many files are in the project as well as a listing of all the files in the project.

Click the "DONE" button to exit from the tool when you're ready to leave it behind.
