A logfile is generated in the temp folder.
Hint : you can find it here : C:\Documents and settings\[Username]\Local settings\temp\TailBite_Logfile.txt
Prompt confirm on deletion of previous library with the same name: TailBite will ask you before deleting an existing library with the same name.
Don't build library, only source files: only the ASM files and .Desc file will be created.
Keep source files after making the library: the intermediate ASM files used to build the library will be copied to the 'Asm source files' folder below. By default, they are deleted.
Hide TailBite window: the TailBite window won't be shown when calling TailBite, so you won't see the status text nor you'll be able to cancel the process, so it's not recommended to use this option.
Generate build batch file: TailBite will generate a batch file in the library source folder to allow fast rebuilding which, anyway, you can do more easyly with TailBite itself (processing the .Desc file).
