  • Resume with FreeDOS

    Has anyone used FreeDOS with the On Error Resume?

    My programs work fine with FreeDOS. However if I have to use the Resume for
    error handling, then FreeDOS crashes. I tried different versions of their
    command com and Kernal, but all do not like the Resume. Some freeze for a
    few seconds then take you back to the command com, while others give an eroor at:code.

    Help is very much appreciated.

    I just tried a simple test program and it seemed to work ok.

    I simply did a file open on a non-existant file. The resume worked just fine and I caught the error on the next line.

      Thanks Mike,

      You are right. I tried on error resume with next and a label/line number and it worked fine.

      Im not sure what caused me to think that it was not working in FreeDos.

        There still could be some issue with FreeDOS, though. The simple test I described only tested one aspect. Your program could be doing other things that cause FreeDOS to have problems, unrelated to the error catching and resume statement. I recommend you try running your program under MS-DOS and see if you can track down what trigger the crash and how.
