Changes in KEDIT for Windows 1.5 Service Level 3
Here is a list of the changes made to KEDIT for Windows 1.5 in Service
Level 3. Service Level 3 also includes all of the changes in Service Level 2, which was released
in January 1997. KEDIT for Windows 1.5 was originally released, as KEDIT
for Windows 1.5 Service Level 1, in June of 1996.
Most of the changes in Service Level 3 involve minor bug fixes. There is
one enhancement for users of the 32-bit version: you can now use the
wheel on the Microsoft IntelliMouse and similar devices to scroll
forward and backward in your file.
Changes affecting both 16- and 32-bit KEDIT for Windows 1.5
- In rare circumstances, KEDIT could crash when an instance of KEDIT
was already active, INSTANCE SINGLE was in effect, and a fresh copy
of KEDIT was started.
- Invalid data entered into the Edit Goto dialog box could sometimes
- KEDIT could sometimes crash when printing files with very long names.
- When two lines were joined together by the JOIN command, trailing
blanks in the second line were sometimes being deleted.
- When the current line was overlaid by a KEDIT message, the box
normally drawn around the current line was being drawn around the
- Invalid options used with the KEXX DOSDIR() function could sometimes
- KEXX I/O functions (LINEIN(), LINEOUT(), etc.) were sometimes
improperly handling I/O to LPT1, etc.
- When the command line scrolled to accommodate long command lines, the
cursor wasn't being displayed, or was being displayed in the wrong
- The cursor could sometimes disappear if KEDIT was used with a mouse
that has a mouse wheel and the shareware program FlyWheel was in use.
- Minor updates were made to the list of keywords highlighted by the
syntax coloring facility for C/C++, Pascal, xBase, and Java programs.
- Pascal syntax coloring is now also applied by default to .DPK files,
which are used with Delphi.
- TAG BLOCK and TAG ALL were previously invalid, but are now allowed.
- EXTRACT /RING/ was previously invalid with no files in the ring, but
is now allowed.
- When invoked with a fileid beginning with DIR (for example, the
command line KEDITW32 DIR.C) KEDIT was incorrectly executing KEDIT's DIR
command, instead of editing the specified file.
- The KEXX debugger was not properly displaying lines of a macro that
used variables whose names ended with THEN.
- KEDIT could crash in rare situations when using the JOIN command
(Alt+J) in column 1 of syntax-colored files.
- If a KLD file specified paired comment delimiters, but the starting
and ending delimiters had different lengths, syntax coloring was
incorrect for files that used those comment delimiters.
- SET STATUSLINE OFF, saved in .INI file via Options Save Settings, was
not taking effect in future KEDIT sessions.
- Allow selection of simulated fonts, such as Lucida Console Bold, from
Options Screen Font dialog.
- EXTRACT /QUICKFIND/ was returning QUICKFIND.4 in uppercase, but should
return it in mixed case.
- QUERY STARTUP now includes additional identifying information in its
- A macro that used the PURGE command to remove itself from memory could
- The command DEFINE =.=, issued with a .KML file as the current file,
was being treated as equivalent to DEFINE =.KEX, instead of DEFINE
- Character code 255 was not being handled properly by KEDIT's syntax
coloring code, and when entered from Cyrillic keyboard.
- PM indicator was incorrectly displayed in time field of status line in
countries with 24-hour clock.
- EXTRACT /DIRECTORY/ now returns DIRECTORY.2, with the current
directory in mixed case.
- Comma (',') specified alone in a .KLD file :MATCH section was crashing
- KEDIT was checking printer status at startup, but if a networked
printer responded very slowly, KEDIT took too long to initialize. KEDIT
now waits until the first use of the PRINT command or related dialog
boxes to check printer status.
- In rare situations, KEDIT could cause a GPF during regular expression
- Syntax coloring was incorrect for quoted strings within HTML tags if
the quoted strings began in column 1.
Changes affecting only the 32-bit version of KEDIT for Windows 1.5
- SET COLOR TOOLTIP no longer has any effect. Instead, tooltips are
displayed using the color and font determined through the Windows
Control Panel or Display Properties.
- You can now use the wheel on the Microsoft IntelliMouse to scroll
forward and backward in your files.
- KEDIT could crash if File Save or File Save As was used, a very long
fileid was involved, and an error (such as an unexpected change to the
file's timestamp) is encountered.
- KEDIT could crash in rare situations when editing a file with a very
long filename, one of whose components ends in a period or contains two
periods in a row.
- Workaround for Win 95 bug returning incorrect information about root
directory of SUBSTed drive.
- After KEDIT detected an internal error and produced a KEDIT.RPT file,
it would sometimes attempt to continue running, but should instead
- DIR command for a fileid with no extension, such as DIR .EXT, was
being handled as equivalent to DIR *.EXT, but since .EXT is a valid
Win32 fileid, should simply search for the file .EXT.
- KEDIT could crash if FILESEARCH.n() Implied EXTRACT function was used
within a macro assigned to a key.
- The module is slightly smaller and faster than the Service Level 1 and
- '=' specified as a fileid component at KEDITW32 startup, or when KEDIT
or DIR commands are issued with no files in the ring, should yield an
error message but was instead incorrectly treating '=' as '+'.
- The FRAMESIZE option was being ignored under NT 4.0 if KEDITW32 was
started from the MS-DOS command prompt.
- The maximum number of ARBCHAR characters that can be used in a target
has been increased from 8 to 16.
- When the new name specified for a file via the RENAME command names a
file that already exists, KEDIT now gives a better error message.
- When a macro issued a DOSQ command and the user clicked on an inactive
KEDIT document window while the DOSQ command was running, KEDIT was
incorrectly activating the file in the inactive window.
