  • PowerBASIC Console Compiler 6.00

    The WAITSTAT statement causes a serious error (GPF) during compilation. Please use CON.WAITSTAT (an exact synonym) instead until rev 6.01 is released.

    The EOF() function may not always recognize a soft eof character (&H1A) in a sequential file opened for INPUT. This will be updated in 6.01.

      In the PowerTime class, the TimeDiff method was mis-documented. The compiler and the documentation will be updated in 6.01. Please refrain from any use of this method until the update is released.

        The LPRINT ATTACH statement will fail due to an internal character mode mismatch. This will be corrected in version 6.01. As a temporary workaround, you can pass the printer port name as an ANSI string with a UCODE$() override. Only this precise combination will be effective.

        LP$ = "LPT1"
        LPRINT ATTACH UCODE$(LP$)

        You will have to reverse this change for use with version 6.01.

          The REPLACE and REPLACE ANY statements fail when used with Wide Unicode parameters. This will be corrected in version 6.01.

            In the WinAPI file DDT.INC, %CBN_SELENDCANCEL is incorrectly defined. Please change it to:

            %CBN_SELENDCANCEL = 10

              The StringBuilderA.Insert Method can produce an incorrect result with certain data and index positions. It will be corrected in version 6.04.

              The StringBuilderW.Insert Method functions correctly.

                The IPowerTime interface cannot be inherited accurately. This will be corrected in the free update to version 6.04.

                  The XPRINT SET CLIP statement can fail if it is not preceded by an XPRINT statement. This will be corrected in the update to 6.04.

                  A workaround is to insert XPRINT " " before the XPRINT SET CLIP.
