Incremental compilation

You can compile the project incrementally. With incremental compilation, CitectSCADA only compiles the database records that were added (or changed) since the last compilation. The remainder of the project is not re-compiled.

Note: Some database records are dependent on other database records. If you change a dependent record, CitectSCADA compiles the entire database.

Before you run a system on a live plant, perform a complete compilation (switch off Incremental Compile) as the compilation will be more rigorous. Similarly, when you restore a project from floppy disk, you need to perform a complete compilation the first time (switch off Incremental Compile).

To switch to Incremental Compile:

  1. Select the Project Editor.
  2. Choose Tools | Options.
  3. Select the Incremental Compile check box, and then click OK.
