About CodeSnip Files on SourceForge. (Applies to CodeSnip v4.1.0 and later)
The CodeSnip project's files on SourceForge are organised as follows:
* Each of the later releases has its own directory named Release-9.9.9 where
9.9.9 is the version number of the release. In each of these directories are
archives of both executable and source code files in .zip format. The latest
release will be stored in the directory with the most recent version numner.
* Some old releases are grouped together in directories named Release-9.9.x
where 9.9 represents the major and minor release numbers. Archives
containing source and executable code for each of the revisions relating to
that release are provided.
* The earliest releases have directories using the same Release-9.9.x naming
convention as above but the directories may contain only source code
archives, or possibly nothing except a read-me file explaining how to get
In each directory are three files:
- contains the "standard" edition installer + read-me file
- contains the executable program, help file, read-me file and other
documentation for the "portable" edition.
- contains source code used to build the executable files (both "standard"
and "portable" editions are compiled from the same source).
"9.9.9" represents the actual version number. For special releases, such as
previews or beta releases, some text may be appended to the version number.

If you want to install and use CodeSnip on one computer, where the data files
are stored on the hard disk you need the "standard" edition. The program is
installed for all users and each use can maintain their own data.
If you want to install the program onto removable storage for use on more than
one computer you need the "portable" edition. This edition stores user data with
the program on the removable storage device.
Source code archives are provided here as a convenience. You can also get source
from the project's Subversion repository at
