Editable layout files

This file contain information consumed by editable packages. It is an .ini file listing the directories that Conan should use for the packages that are opened in editable mode:

# Affects to all packages but cool/version@user/dev

# using placeholders from conan settings and options


# Affects only to cool/version@user/dev

The specific sections using a package reference will have higher priority than the general ones.

This file can live in the conan cache, in the .conan/layouts folder, or in a user folder, like inside the source repo.

If there exists a .conan/layouts/default layout file in the cache and no layout file is specified in the conan link <path> <reference> command, that file will be used.
