Q30829: Setting TMPSAV in TOOLS.INI file; M.TMP Cannot Be Suppressed
Article: Q30829 Product(s): See article Version(s): 1.00 Operating System(s): OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER | TAR76606 | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 8-JUN-1988 Question: How do I get the Microsoft Editor (both ME and MEP) to not create and use the M.TMP to record past editing sessions? I have tried setting the switch tmpsave:0 in the TOOLS.INI file, but this does not solve the problem. Is there some other switch I have not set properly or a way to exit without creating M.TMP? Response: There is no way to prevent the creation of the temporary file. The TMPSAV switch is used to control the maximum number of files about which information is kept between editing sessions. This information includes the cursor position and window layouts. When you edit one of these files again, the screen starts up as you left it. The default value is 20. If TMPSAV is set to 0, it causes all files to be saved. All other numeric values refer to the number of files that will be saved. The /t option specifies that any files edited are temporary; they are not saved in the M.TMP file.
