LabVIEW Tip of the Day 2019-01-01:

Separate Compiled Code From Source

Usually, LabVIEW stores the compiled code used to run a VI together with the graphical code of the VI in the same file. LabVIEW automatically recompiles all changed VIs together with all callers, modifying a lot more files than were actually touched. Your SCC won’t like that! Luckily, there’s an option to separate the compiled code from the graphical source code.

At the ALA Summit last November, we had a very brief discussion about the “separate compiled code” option in LabVIEW. Another little discussion yesterday on one of the ALA Slack channels sparked the idea to write an article detailing the pros and cons. You can read it all here:
