davej Posted May 14, 2012 Share Posted May 14, 2012 (edited) I just suffered some confusion a few days ago due to having apparently edited the wrong project in Netbeans. I tend to rename my folders with a date suffix but this is not visible inside Netbeans once you enter the project, so apparently I entered some changes into a non-current version. I am curious about simple version control aids that might prevent that from occurring again in the future. I was thinking of writing a program to compare the source-file contents of all project folders that matched a specified wildcard. This program would also offer a two-pane text display highlighting source differences. I'm suspecting my concept is nothing like a _real_ version control program. So I want to ask -- what are the basic features of a "real" version control system? Thanks! Edited May 14, 2012 by davej Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
