Does XCode implicitly convert plists's to binary format?

Does XCode implicitly convert plists in a project to binary during the building process? I don't think it does this implicitly but having a hard time determining for sure.

Answers


There is a build setting named "Property List Output Encoding" (a.k.a PLIST_FILE_OUTPUT_FORMAT) which can be used to tell Xcode to convert copied plists to a different format when performing a build. The default value is "same-as-input" though, so it shouldn't do any conversion unless you specifically change that value to something else. If you would like to have your plists converted to binary, to save space and/or load time, just change that setting to "binary" in your target's build settings in Xcode.

jQuery hotkeys plugin uses bind

I'm using the jQuery hotkeys plugin, written by John Resig (Mr jQuery). It uses bind, however, and bind is now replaced by on as noted in the official jQuery API.
