hey guys and chicas Smiley

okay first off, when i try to compile my code, i get an 'Out Of String Space' error. does this mean i have to compile from commandline from now on?? that would suk Tongue anyways

also, ive been using cosmox xms routines. has anyone ever had a problem with these on old machines? not dissin, its a kikass lib, but ever since ive been using xms, qbasic has been puking acid on me Tongue like for instance. ive had to start a whole new order of operations.... something like this.

open run reopen edit save close repeat.

ok i open and run. runs fine. then i HAVE to reopen before i edit. why you ask? because if i just edit and save... when i load my subs and functions are missing!!!! :X you know how many freakin times that happened to me b4 i figured out what was causing it? well, technically i still have no f___ing clue why its happening. but i know how to stop it. this is a HUGE PITA.... any help would be immensely appreciated.

i have to be writing to mem the in the right places too... cause the way my system works, it wouldnt display anything if i wasnt, and it runs fine :X

That's mostly due to your program's memory intefering with the IDE I believe. Just gotta re-open stuff constantly. You probably should use CLEAR or something, plus clean up any images (from memory) from your lib if it has that ability...

Well, the compiler is a lot more strict than the IDE. Probably not any XMS stuff.

One thing you want to watch out for is undefined SUB/FUNCTION variables. They all have to be defined as integer, string, or whatnot.

The compiler runs everything dynamic from what I've heard. Try putting the '$dynamic metacommand at the top of your program and it should act like the compiler from the ide. Then try getting it to work from there if that is the problem. If you are doing a somewhat large project, you'd always want to start out with '$dynamic so when you get down the road and want to compile it, you won't get any problems.

As far as I'm concerned the CosmoX XMS functions should work correctly.  Though I have reservations on it using special calls that enables it to use 4gig.  Maybe that's the problem.
