Recursive Initialization Variable

Visual Studio 2005

Specifies Yes to make Visual SourceSafe commands recursive by default, and No to disable recursion by default.

Recursive = {Yes|No}

You can always make a particular command recursive by choosing the appropriate check box in Visual SourceSafe Explorer or by specifying the -R command option when using a command line command. However, if you set this variable to Yes, all commands are recursive by default.

You can set this variable in your Ss.ini file directly or in Visual SourceSafe Explorer. In Visual SourceSafe Explorer, use the SourceSafe Options dialog box, General tab. Select the Act on projects recursively check box to set this variable to Yes.

Specifies that commands are not recursive by default:

Recursive = No
