View Full Version : Text file Substitutions (.rul, .fgl, etc...)

Just a quick question from (and for) an "old-school" IS developer.

I've just started working for a new company, and I've found that they still use IS 5.5! The reason they have stayed with that version is because they want to be able to perform text substitutions on the various files that make up a project (.rul, .fgl, etc...) prior to a compile of the setup.

What I'm looking for is some sort of ammunition to either say that they can perform the same sort of operations with Developer7 or 8 (never tried it myself with Developer7), or why it's better not to be able to fully automate a package build. ???

Can anyone give me some help here?
