Title: please remove delete function in IDE
Post by: macsimski on Jan 03, 2007, 09:55 pm
Hello there,

today i managed to erase my project by mistake by using the Delete menu item under the tab button. I'm running Mac OS X 10.3.9 and Arduino-0007.

My opinion is that it should not be possible for a application to directly delete anything on a users machine. better would be to place it in the trash/waste bin/recycler and let the user decide if he really wants to delete stuff.

The command line is the place to directly delete stuff, but in a GUI it's better to have a safetynet.

Ouch.  You have a point; I'll take a look at removing it from Arduino 0008.
