i don't know if any of this is even worth mentioning , but for some ..(non specific at this time) reason..i am always being repetivilly told to use the single line commands of gfa , and forget about the vdi the tos,and the aes .....
I did not say go back to GFA. What I find a bit annoying is that you will not clarify the exact points where this gave you trouble. I am quite certain at this point you did not read the manual, or if you did you did not grasp it at all. You wish to avoid stating, oh I see, yes I made a mistake, it was my fault. I did not know DEFTEXT command could do that.
You still don't get it do you.
The built in GFA commands are VDI, TOS, AES commands, just with simple more logical names.
You really don't have a clue do you. If you dis-assemble pascal and your gfa app you ported you will find they make the exact same OS calls. DEFTEXT ,,,x in fact compiles to vst_height().
If one line gets the job done, that's the most efficient way. Less clutter, less code, problem solved.
but did you get thru all that just by using simple one line code
There is nothing wrong with one line of code to solve a problem, in fact most programmers will say that is the goal. Now you are just being stupid.
no you got thru that because you went to school and study computer...
I have no formal training for computers whatsoever. I read a lot. That's all.
i am eager to learn lonny , but i still have obstacles to overcome.
I don't think so, in fact I'm more incline at this point to think you'd rather save face than have your problems cleared up for the benefit of other GFA readers. Fine be that way. You can't help someone who don't want to be helped. I'm done.
