The workbench enables you to embed on the target the source code of the project, so that it can be uploaded later. Source code is filtered and zipped in order to reduce backup memory requirements. As sending source to the target may involve a significant donwload time, it is up to you to explicitely activate the download command. Those commands are available from the "File" menu of the main window:
Save Project to Target: zip project source files and send them
to the target
Open project from Target: upload zipped source file from the target and rebuild the project
Save to target (download)
When saving the project to the target you have to specify the address and communication parameters of the remote runtime system. The following options enable you to send more or less optional information with project source code:
Debug information: this file will be required after upload for step by step debugging and use of breakpoints. If you do not embed the symbol table, you will have to recompile the uploaded application for stepping the application.
In addition to standard files, you can specify some extra files to be downloaded. In that case, all of them will be located in the loaded project folder after upload, even if they are originally located in other folders.
Removing some options enables you to reduce the size of embedded source code.
Open from target (upload)
When uploading the application, you need to specify the address and communication parameters of the remote runtime system, plus a name and a location for the uploaded project on the PC. This function cannot be used to overwrite an existing project folder.
