Arguments: project-or-app

Returns an integer that indicates how many times the standalone application for a project has been built. This information could be presented in an About dialog, for example, to distinguish between builds.

This project property is automatically incremented each time the File | Build Project Distribution command is used to generate the standalone app, and the setf of this function could be used to set the value arbitrarily (though it should always be a non-negative integer). The build-number of a new project will be zero, and the first build will be build number 1.

In the standalone application (as well as in the IDE), build-number is also a property of the cg:app object, where it can be retrieved with the expression (build-number (app *system*)), since the project itself is not present in the generated app.

If you build projects programmatically by calling ide:build-project, then you could avoid incrementing the build-number of the project by passing the increment-build-number argument as nil. That would avoid modifying the project and making the IDE inclined to save it.
