OptiPerl in it's installation folder has among other the following files that control settings not found in OptiPerl's dialogs:


  • Parsers.xml: Control's settings that affect the associations of file extensions and default and non-default language parsers. Used for syntax coding.


  • Server.ini: Settings for the internal server.


  • Default Modes.txt: Affects default transfer modes and permissions when adding a file to the Project Manager.


  • Default Watches.txt: Standard watches in the watches window.


  • Buttons.bmp: The actual bitmaps of the custom buttons added in the Custom Tools.


  • Startpage.htm: The html code to the page in OptiPerl's browser when it starts.


  • File Dialog Filters.txt: Contains the "Files of type" filtering items in the editors open and save dialog. Needs to have an even number on non empty lines, and each pair of lines contains the caption of the filter and the filter itself (as a set of wild cards).


  • Code Librarian.zip: Is copied to the Application Data Folder when creating a user's session. Used for multi-user versions of OptiPerl. This is NOT where your code snippets are stored.  They are stored in the Application Data Folder\Settings\Code Librarian.zip


  • Internal Functions.txt: List of internal functions of perl used for syntax highlighting.


  • Reserved words.txt: List of reserver words of perl used for syntax highlighting.


  • Heredoc Ignore.txt: Here-document headers to ignore in syntax highlighting. Enter here common headers used when autoloading perl code so the code will not be parsed as string.


  • IP Address Pages.txt: List of web pages that return your IP address, used in the "Setting up remote debugging" dialog. One of these is randomly selected each time, and the first string that looks like an IP address is used.



Edit these files only if you know what you are doing, and make sure you keep backups! These files generally do not need to ever be changed.
