Q64024: C 6.00 UNDEL.EXE Is Not Compatible with the Microsoft Editor
Article: Q64024 Product(s): See article Version(s): 1.00 1.02 | 1.00 1.02 Operating System(s): MS-DOS | OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER | | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 25-JUL-1990 If backup copies of files are stored in the \DELETED subdirectory by the M Editor, typing "undel" should bring up a listing of backup copies. However, if the C 6.00 version of UNDEL.EXE is used, the following message will be displayed: " 0(0) bytes in 0 deleted files. The C 5.10 version of UNDEL.EXE will successfully bring up a listing of backup copies saved by either the M Editor or the Programmer's WorkBench (PWB). This problem can be reproduced by setting the text backup switch in the M section of the TOOLS.INI file to "undel". After saving various copies, backups are added to the \DELETED subdirectory and a listing can be brought up by using the C 5.10 UNDEL.EXE. Using the C 6.00 version of UNDEL.EXE causes the erroneous message listed above to be displayed. This incompatibility was caused by adding OS/2 version 1.20 filename support to UNDEL.EXE and EXP.EXE. As a workaround, rename the C 5.10 UNDEL.EXE to UNDEL51.EXE and the C 6.00 UNDEL.EXE to UNDEL60.EXE.
