Title: About Software Bugs?
Post by: Jeff on March 18, 2011, 01:36:35 AM
I made file names with spaces, for example: one c.exe. (You can see a space between one and c)

Will spaces between my file names create bugs?
Do you have other software that can really locate and correct software bugs?
What should we do to prevent bugs when developing our software using HyperNext?

I'm not really sure about the meaning of bugs but it might be something to do with an error in the code.

Thanks

Generally the spaces shouldn't be a problem as modern Operating Systems are built to cope with spaces in file names.

However, if you are working with DOS shell or similar where spaces in path names can can cause problems then surround your pathname with Chr(34)


The only way to prevent bugs is to test a lot and perhaps turn error checking on inside HyperNext as by default it is turned off.
There is a section in the Language PDF on handling errors.
