Symbols and Projects

Source Insight parses symbol definitions dynamically out of your source files while you edit. Symbol informa­tion is stored on disk in an indexed symbol database, which is integral to the project.

The symbol database is updated incrementally as you open and save files. Files that are changed by other project team members are also automatically synchronized with the symbol database in the background. You typically do not need to do anything to keep Source Insight’s symbol information current.
