I've gotten through DOpus55.pdf pretty well, and skimmed DOpus582.pdf. I will be spending a lot of time on Chapter 13 in the former, and I have printed out the indices of both documents so that I can look things up before bothering people here.

Two questions today, that have no obvious answers in those sources.

1. I was very happy to see, reading the first, that there was an "Abort" command, except that I could not find it in the lister or any description of the lister commands I get. It isn't mentioned in the later document, and I suspect it has been eliminated. Right?

2. If OS4.2 ever "is ready" (I think it was included in my purchase of the X1000), will DOpus5 still work?

Let me say that I am absolutely delighted with it as a Workbench replacement, and can't imagine that I would ever want to go back (not that I wasn't delighted with Workbench when it was my only option). I feel rather guilty about having got it for free. Maybe if I had tried harder to appreciate DOpus4 I might have been inclined to contribute to its development. Is there any way to make up for that? (Oops, a third query.)

Until OS4.2 is out, nobody can answer this question.
Maybe if you have a time machine you can find out
But I'm sure people involved will fix Dopus5 if it needs fixing under 4.2.

I think the Abort command is an internal usage only type command. It's probably called when you click an abort button and deals with the current process only. It could also be a 'quit' equivalent for dopus dos scripts as quit would quit all of dopus. abort has no template.

Type 'help' for help.
> help abort
Command has no template.

Although I would not recommend using dopus5's cli as it's a little broken... eg.

cd sys:
dir
cd ram:
dir

Both dir commands list sys:

but it does work for scandir etc. but the result if shown in the current srce lister not the cli window. Whick is as it should be.

Thanks, I'll do that.

"Bounty" is the word I couldn't think of this time. I'm really starting to have trouble with words. And I won't even be Old for another year and two days.
