Great :-)

A few minor things that could get fixed at next occasion when reducing the stack, upgrading the stub, or adjusting for JAWASM:

- Display always exact position in file, line number only additionally only in text mode
- Search next doesn't work the first time, and is incompletely documented in built-in help

Thanks for the hint and bug report! However, the stack has almost reached the minimum, the stub is probably final and it's written in a bad mix of C++ and ASM.

:confused: Anyway, FD EMM386 2.02 also was "final" some years ago :-D

Oops ... had thought it would be ASM only :-|

07/04/2008, V2.13: bugfix: the DOS binary might have caused a GPF if the last line was edited and then "view" mode was reentered.

Not only then ... I also had noticed this bug but too late to report :crying:

But there are more:

1. BUG: (see shot)
2. enh: Allow to enter position in HEX or DEC or LINE (text mode) or "%" of total
3. enh: Display limits / file size when asking for position
4. BUG: If file specified in commandline doesn't for into memory, S reports "file not found"
5. BUG: When loading a file interactively, it reports correctly about memory, but then the not loaded file can be "edited "and saved back, having a garbage name preset

What's the bug? The German text? Fixed in 2.14.

That's supposed to be a feature, IIRC.

[BUG] S - search

( oooops, bumping a 3 years old thread )

> That's supposed to be a feature, IIRC. http://www.japheth.de/S/S.html

There is one more:

- Search sometimes fails to find a match despite it is in there (HEX mode) - some super-fast searching algo ???

BTW, TotalCommander's Lister has the very same BUG, and FreeBASIC used to have this BUG too :clap:

XVI32 (non-DOS) does NOT have this bug and finds my match finally.
