Using element types to configure a view

Creating all C-language header files as elements of type hdr_file allows flexibility in configuring views. Suppose that one developer reorganizes the project header files, working on a branch named header_reorg to avoid disrupting the team’s work. To compile with the new header files, another developer can use a view re-configured with one additional rule:

element * CHECKEDOUT
element -eltype hdr_file * /main/header_reorg/LATEST
element * /main/LATEST
