Q69065: Sequential Mode Not Available in CodeView Version 3.00
Article: Q69065 Product(s): See article Version(s): 3.00 3.01 3.11 | 3.00 3.01 3.11 Operating System(s): MS-DOS | OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER | | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 6-FEB-1991 The CodeView sequential mode (/T option) is not available in CodeView version 3.00. In CodeView versions 2.30 and earlier, the /T option caused the debugger to operate in "sequential mode," which means that only a command-line interface was available. You could then type the command "=COM1" to redirect the input and output to the COM port, which allowed debugging via a remote terminal. The /T option and the "=COM1" command are not available in CodeView 3.00, 3.10, and 3.11 because of the new windowing environment used in these versions. However, you can still redirect CodeView output to COM1 using the Redirected Output command. The Redirected Output command causes the CodeView debugger to write all subsequent command output to a device, such as another terminal, a printer, or a file. The term "output" includes not only the output from commands but also the command characters that are echoed as you type them. The second greater-than symbol (optional) appends the output to an existing file. If you redirect output to an existing file without this symbol, the existing file will be replaced. For example: >>COM1 In the example above, output is redirected to the device designated as COM1 (probably a remote terminal). You might want to enter this command, for example, when you are debugging a graphics program and want CodeView commands to be displayed on a remote terminal while the program display appears on the originating terminal. >>OUTFILE.TXT In the example above, output is redirected to the file OUTFILE.TXT. This command is helpful in keeping a permanent record of a CodeView session.
