    Donald,

    of course I'm closing the COMM before exiting, although the program should do it itself even under the IDE. I'm under Windows XP Pro SP2.

    As I already stated, this is not a real problem, but since I think (am I wrong?) PowerBasic will release a new version of the compiler in the future, I'm signaling this so as they can do a check.

    Thanks

    Did you CLOSE the comm file in your code? That should happen for
    you when the program terminates, but you indicate you are still in
    the IDE, so the program is not running in standalone fashion.

    What OS are you programming under?

    COMM locks under IDE

    A little... bug or feature? I'm sharing the same COMM line between a PBCC program and some PBDOS programs, which I launch from inside the IDE. After the PBDOS program ends (leaving the PBDOS IDE active), the PBCC program finds the COMM line is busy - The line becomes free to the PBCC program only after I exit the PBDOS IDE. Nothing weird, I'm just curious to know if it is a known issue.
