A suggestion to have in the OBEX a !Tested with! column

In the OBEX are quite often examples that were supplied with an object that have been tested / compiled with the authors preferred compiler:

As an example some using Propeller Tool and some FlexProp.

What I am finding is that unless you compile / test them with the right one, they can fail to run and instead come with a bunch of errors.

Thinking about the new user who wants to use a serial driver and it does not compile, he could soon get fed up and maybe move onto something else like an Uno for example.

Can I propose a new column that indicates what the samples were "compiled/tested with" and anyone uploading new objects also indicates what they used to test the object examples with.

I know that's a whole ball ache to correct them now but the user engagement would likely go up if things worked out the box or were clear what is required to compile.

    Yes, on the P1 things were pretty much fixed as far as the compilers.

    On the P2 things are a little more fluid and something that compiled yesterday may not compile today.

    Feature functions are still being added so the version of the compiler used may be necessary.
