I vaguely recall having some problems with this and even resolving them many years ago. Now I of course don' t remember that and have some problems again. the question: does opening the #15 secadd channel in ML require some kind of special attention? It seems that it is somehow connected with $b7 (FNLEN). When $b7 is equal to zero (like e.g. after loading from tape) I get some strange behaviour. OTOH I get differently strange results when not setting $b7 to zero - in other places. Furthermore, another question - when should and when shouldn't one CLOSE() / CLALL() after using the channel? What I need to do should be so simple (checking if the file exists): SETLFS(file0, dev0) SETNAM(file0, dev0) OPEN(file0, dev0) SETLFS(statuschannel, dev0) OPEN(statuschannel, dev0) CHKIN(statuschannel, dev0) CHRIN(statuschannel, dev0) UNTIL $0d CLRCHN CLOSE(statuschannel, dev0) CLOSE(file0, dev0) CLALL Yet it seems that I get different results, depending on the content of $b7 and the position of CLOSE/CLRCHN/CLALL even in combinations I would expect to make no difference. Any clues? -- A valiant man's look is more than a coward's sword. Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
