    Have you ever worked with extremely long source files? I did and found that it may be quite difficult to find those pieces of code you need right now. Level add-in can help you hide 'inactive' pieces of your code into include files. So, for example if you don't work with function exampleFunction right now.

    int ExampleFunction( void )
    	// function body
    	return 1;

    You may use the level add-in commands and have, instead,

    int ExampleFunction( void )
    #include "./level/in312897.h";

    The body of ExampleFunction will be hidden inside of the file ./level/in312897.h. The file with ExampleFunction still will be perfectly compilable, but it will be much smaller in size. Level add-in also easily reverses the operation and restores normal text.

    I think you get the main idea. Now the details.

    Level Add-In has 6 commands.

    1. Wrap Selection

    This will take the selected text and hide it into an include file. To execute this command, select text and press the first toolbar button.

    2. Wrap Function

    This will take text, enclosed it in a couple of '{' '}' braces and save it into an include file. You may use this command not only for function. This function will be executed when you push the second button on the toolbar.

    3. Restore

    This will restore the original text. You need to put the cursor on the string with the corresponding #include and press the first button on the toolbar again.

    4. Restore in File

    This will restore the original text in the current file. Just press the third button ( red arrow up ) and Add-In will search for all #include "./level in the current file and restore it.

    5. Restore in Project

    This will restore the original text in the whole project. To invoke you need to press the fourth button ( two yellow arrows up ). All files in the current project will be restored.

    6. delete backup files

    The Add-In doesn't delete restored include files automatically, but rather waits for you to press the fifth button - familiar garbage bucket Smile | :)


    Installation of the Level add-in is as usual, just please, before using it, restart Developer Studio.

    I have some ideas on how to improve this add-in, but your suggestions, comments or bug reports are welcome.
