Code signing extra copies of project

Although this is not causing any problems I would like to know what happened.

When I select the Signature Tool my project name is duplicated with projectname-1.cod

This was giving me a signing error but I wiped temp files from Eclipse and re-imported my project and that appeared to allow the signing tool to work but didn't clear the extra copies.

I did a search of the filesystem and I couldn't find any projectname-1.cod files. Where does the signing tool get a list of projects? Can I remove these phantom copies?

it looks like this in the signing tool..

Projectname.cod  RRT

projectname.cod  RBB

projectname.cod  RCR

Projectname-1.cod  RRT     \

projectname-1.cod  RBB     | - Extra copy that I cannot remove!

projectname-1.cod  RCR    /

The maximum COD file size is 128K (64K code, 64K data).


So, when you code exceeds 64K, the compiler will break it up into these mycode-1, mycode-2, etc.


The files are actually "zipped" into the aggregate COD file.  You can rename this file to the ZIP extension and unzip the indovidual COD files, then you will see them.


In fact, this is part of the standard procedure for OTA deployment.
