Re: Digital C SE Foibles on QPC2

Hi Norman wrote #include <stdio_h> even though no such file exits Do you mean that you don't have the studio_h file which is part of the Digital C distribution. If not then that could be why things are not working. It is a 628 byte file that contains digital C's small C definitions including assigni...

Re: SERNET question

Hi,
If its downloadable from Dilwyn Jones site it's freeware.

I use sernet 2.25 on a Q60 to connect to a Q68 running sernet 3.01mod with no real problems, using Cueshell (also now freeware). Versions of sernet before 2.25 con be problematic I have found.

Cheers

Re: Digital C

Hi,

I have taken 2 snippets of c from the above discussion and compiled them with digital C on a Q68. They both run and display a defined initial window whithout producing any false windows as far as I can see. Try them out and see if they work on your system.

Cheers

Re: Digital C

Hi, I have recompiled some of my old Digital C programs and _console() works fine. No extra windows. Stupid question are you using the -nc command on the parser command line as without that a digital c compiled program will open a window for command input regardless of the redefinition of windows by...

Re: Digital C

Hi, The problem may be that your are calling _console from a procedure within main {} My marginal notes indicate that _console needs to be called directly within main {} and cannot have any other sub calls within it, the joys of DP. What about this? int ln; int scr_xmax,scr_ymax,xpos,ypos; char *wnd...

Re: Digital C

Hi, Quote from Digital C manual section 4.12.2: "If your program contains a function called _console(), this will be executed before any console window is opened by the entry code. This is useful for opening your own console window and overriding the default windows. Your _console() function mu...
