Q58029: Two Toned Colors in <assign> Pseudo File Can Occur
Article: Q58029 Product(s): See article Version(s): 1.02 | 1.02 Operating System(s): MS-DOS | OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER | buglist1.02 | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 29-JAN-1990 The <assign> pseudo file can consist of lines in blocks that alternate in color starting at the middle of the file. This appears as if you've changed multiple editor options, which have just been activated, when no changes were actually made. This does not affect the way M.EXE (or MEP.EXE) operates. To see the blocks of alternating color, follow the steps below: 1. Invoke the editor. 2. Press ALT+A <ASSIGN> F2, which implies ARG <ASSIGN> SETFILE. 3. Press ALT+BACKSPACE, which implies UNDO. 4. Press F9 ALT+BACKSPACE, which implies META UNDO. 5. Page down until you see the colored blocks. Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem with the Microsoft Editor Version 1.02. We are researching this problem and will post new information here as it becomes available.
