boylesg, I've seen you bitch about the IDE a bunch.  If you don't like it, then don't use it.  I don't.  Pick any other tool chain and editor that you prefer and use that.  Arduino is for the newbies.  It has lots of features that are there to protect the noobs from themselves but piss real programmers off.
 If you don't like it, then just don't use it.  There are tons of other options for the advanced programmer. 
If at first you don't succeed, up - home - sudo - enter.

Yes, that's annoying but an advanced user can use the command line:
Code: [Select]
echo > .development
That creates a file containing the line "ECHO is on." At least on Win7, to create a blank file I use

Code: [Select]
copy NUL .development

Calling a file ".development" is pretty stupid though.
Please don't PM me asking for help. Ask questions in the forum.

As I said already, it doesn't matter what's in the file. It's merely the presence or absence of the file that matters. Actually it would be best to add a note in the file explaining its purpose.

Calling a file ".development" is pretty stupid though.
Why?
