 Clipper 5.2 Help

We are currently revamping and older Clipper program and have
run into a snag with the F1 key being set to the help command.

The old version of the program used the F1 key to call a program
and when the program was recompiled with 5.2, the function no longer
works.

We tried to change the previous help program into a procedure but now
we are given a Fatal C3049 String Space Exhausted Error.  All the
reference manuals we have do not explain this error message.....

Could anyone out there shed some light on this for us?

Thanks in advance

John and Diane

John and Diane,

If you're not yet using version 5.2d please upgrade to it.  Some of the
mysterious errors have been corrected.  The files are available on:

-------

.. have uploaded to the SimTel Software Repository (available by anonymous
ftp from the primary mirror site OAK.Oakland.Edu and its mirrors):

SimTel/msdos/clipper/
52dusx.zip      CA-Clipper 5.2d patch US/Canada May 5, '94
52dusx.txt      CA-Clipper 5.2d patch US/Canada info file
52dix.zip       CA-Clipper 5.2d patch International May 5,'94
52dix.txt       CA-Clipper 5.2d patch International info file

These are the CA-Clipper upgrade patches for Clipper 5.2x.  They will
upgrade any version 5.2(a,b,c) to 5.2d.

-------

The F1 key is really used to invoke your Help System.  You just need to
create a procedure or function called 'help' and everytime you press F1, this
procedure is invoked.  I'd suggest you avoid F1 for calling another program
or put the code for calling the other program inside procedure help.  Would
it work ?
