control folder explained
└── control
    ├── control.xml               
    └── persistence.bin


In the control folder there are in general two files: control.xml and persistence.bin. The control.xml contains control parameters which can be adjusted by the user either by directly additing control.xml or via DESK-Tool.


The persistance.bin contains the values of parameters that are defined to be of type PARAMETER_PERSISTENT in your application. These parameters are continually saved during system operations, for instance a parameter that counts running hours of a system, that continues counting also after the system has been switched off; or if a system has relative encoders, their absolute values are continually saved, such that after a restart calibration is not required.
