16-bit TLIB Version Control for Windows in File-Oriented ("normal") Mode

[Main Form in File-Oriented Normal Mode] D

File-oriented ("normal") mode lets you use wild-cards and/or file-lists to specify files to be managed by TLIB. Six selectable wild-card search modes control the interpretation of wild-card specifications. The specified files are displayed in a multi-selection list box, from which you select the files for any TLIB operation.

Or click the "Mode" button to switch from normal (file-oriented) mode into compiler-native project mode.

Opening a Project in 16-bit TLIB's Compiler-Native Project Mode

[Main Form in Compiler-native Project Mode] D

Compiler-native project mode lets you “open” your compiler's native project file in TLIB, avoiding the need to use wild-card specifications or file-lists. Just click the "Mode" button to switch between compiler-native project mode and normal (file-oriented) mode.

TLIB currently supports the compiler-native project files of MS Visual Basic 3.0-5.0, Watcom C/C++, Borland Delphi, MS Developer Studio 5.0 (VC++/VJ++/etc.), Symantec Visual Cafe, the MultiEdit editor, the Codewright editor, and Help Magician Pro. Support for additional compilers and editors is planned.

TLIB 16-bit Add-In for Visual Basic 4.0 Works Even With VB Standard Edition
Note: the Visual Basic 4.0 Add-In is shown here. We currently have Add-Ins for MS Visual Basic 4.0, 5.0 and (in beta) VB 6.0, and also for MS Developer Studio 5.0 (VC++/VJ++/etc.). Other Add-Ins are planned, call or email for status. The Add-In for Visual Basic 5.0 works with VB 5.0 Learning Edition, Professional Edition, and Enterprise Edition. The TLIB Add-In for Microsoft Developer Studio 5.0 creates a dockable TLIB toolbar in the IDE.

[Sub-Menu Under VB 4.0 Add-Ins Menu] D

The TLIB Version Control Add-Ins for Visual Basic 4.0 and 5.0 integrate the most commonly-used TLIB commands seamlessly into the Visual Basic 32-bit IDE.

(In VB 4.0, the TLIB Add-In creates a TLIB Version Control sub-menu under Visual Basic's Add-Ins menu. In the Professional Edition of Visual Basic 4.0, TLIB also enables the Check-In and Check-Out menu items on the Tools menu. Those menu items are not present in the Standard Edition of Visual Basic 4.0, but we have duplicated them in the TLIB Add-In sub-menu, so you do not need the Professional Edition of Visual Basic 4.0 to use TLIB's Add-In.)

To check-in (update) or check-out (extract) a source file, or to compare versions or view the revision history of a file, simply pick the appropriate menu item from within VB. Or, for less commonly-used functions, such as taking a "snapshot" version label of your project, just run TLIB for Windows in compiler-native project mode and open the VB project file. Version Control for Visual Basic programmers has never been easier!
