Version Control

Overview

SpecVet Version Control is a system to keep track of modifications made to our code base. Due to the nature of the FileMaker platform on which SpecVet is based, it is very easy to make code changes on individual systems fo remedy problems and add features. The Version Control system is an attempt to keep track of changes and to aid in determining differences between one set of files and another.

Version Control consists of the following:

  • A Version table in each of the SpecVet files
  • Several scripts used during the update process
