Q63234: PWB BACKUP.BAK Does Not Create Backup of Source File Correctly
Article: Q63234 Product(s): See article Version(s): 1.00 | 1.00 Operating System(s): MS-DOS | OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER| buglist1.00 | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 24-JUL-1990 Version 1.00 of the Programmer's Workbench does not create a backup of your source file correctly if the PROJECT.MAK has the same base name as the SOURCE.C file. When you build or rebuild the project, the file saved as your backup is a copy of the CURRENT.STS file. A workaround to this problem is to name your PROJECT.MAK with a different base name than your SOURCE.C file. This will still save a copy of your CURRENT.STS file with the base name of the PROJECT.MAK. However, it will correctly save a backup of the SOURCE.C as SOURCE.BAK. Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in version 1.00 of the Programmer's Workbench and will post new information here as it becomes available.
