Q43508: CodeView: View Command Fails with Underscore in Filenames
Article: Q43508 Product(s): See article Version(s): 2.20 | 2.20 Operating System(s): MS-DOS | OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER | buglist2.20 | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 3-MAY-1989 Assume that two source files, MAINPROG.C and FILE_NAM.C, have been compiled with CodeView information. The main function in MAINPROG.C calls a function in FILE_NAM.C. When the following command is executed in CodeView, CodeView responds with "syntax error": V.FILE_NAM.C When FILE_NAM.C is renamed and recompiled as FILENAM.C, the following command works properly, and the source code in FILENAM.C is displayed: V.FILENAM.C Attempts to open a file with an underscore character will work correctly through the "Open" menu in CodeView, but will fail with the View command. Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Version 2.20. We are researching this problem and will post new information as it becomes available.
