Q45618: CALLTREE Produces No Warnings When Out of Disk Space
Article: Q45618 Product(s): See article Version(s): 1.00 | 1.00 Operating System(s): MS-DOS | OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER | S_C H_MASM H_Fortran S_PasCal | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 23-JUN-1989 The CALLTREE.EXE utility shipped with the Microsoft Editor (included with MASM, Optimizing C, FORTRAN, and Pascal) does not produce a warning if it runs out of disk space while writing output files. It simply closes the file being currently written and attempts to produce the next file. If the disk has no space free, the file will be created and closed with a length of 0 (zero) bytes. No error messages are produced in any case. Microsoft is aware of this limitation of CallTree. The error checking and messages features are under review and will be considered for inclusion in a future release.
