Q40235: M Hangs if the textarg Given to ArgCompile Is Incomplete
Article: Q40235 Product(s): See article Version(s): 1.00 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 12-JAN-1989 If you want to compile a program inside the M editor using the following command, textarg should contain the full compile line as typed at the DOS prompt: Arg Arg textarg ArgCompile The following is an example: cl /Zi /Od demo.for If textarg contains just the name of the program (demo), the hard disk light will come on and the message "compilation complete" will appear on the bottom of the screen even though demo.for was not compiled. If textarg contains the full program name (demo.for), your computer hangs if you press SHIFT+F3. Sometimes, there will be lost clusters and allocation errors as reported by chkdsk. This problem was not encountered under OS/2.
