Q38382: CodeView Instruction Pointer Miscounts Very Long Lines
Article: Q38382 Product(s): See article Version(s): 2.20 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | buglist2.20 | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 1-DEC-1988 CodeView may display the "current instruction" highlight on the wrong line if the source file contains lines that are very long. The compiler counts the long lines as one line, but CodeView counts the very long lines as two lines. This makes the line number calculations incorrect and causes the "current line" highlight to appear on the wrong line. This problem does not occur if the source lines are less than 251 characters in length. Because the Microsoft Editor breaks lines that are longer than 250 characters, this problem does not occur if you create and maintain your source files with the Microsoft Editor. Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in CodeView Version 2.20. We are researching this problem and will post new information as it becomes available.
