There's the thing with embedded references to other files that specify a file name and/or location: HTML, XML, CSS and all other web scripting languages, #include directives in C and C++ and something similar in pretty much any assembler, VC++ and other IDE or editor project files, most word processor and spreadsheet files, and so on. A long list... The Java problem is just a special case of this problem with textual references to actual file paths. Without propagating the renames, only the textual references get propagated, which means they stop working. This affects a lot of environments. > I think an 'ideal' soltution would be able to specify a default by file > type (so for instance .java files could rename and merge, but .c/.cpp > files would not - but that's probably just overkill on a project that is > already late...). I still don't understand why or when it would make sense to not propagate a rename or a move in a C or C++ environment. Gerhard
