Hi everybody.
My Delphi compiler produces last few days, when building projects, a .DSM file which I think is not (strictly) necessary. Besides, it is very large, some 1.5 MB for a tiny program. I want to invalidate the production of this type of file. What I have to do?
Regards, Val.

Hi val84,

you are totally right. Those symbol files are unnecessary because they only contain symbol information which will be recreated on every compiler run.

To avoid saving them go to preferences in the IDE (in D5 it is Tolls|Environment Options) and switch the radio group "Desktop contents" from "Desktop and Symbols" to "Desktop only".

Ciao, Mike
