    Thanks for the reply. I ordered PB/DLL 6 on Friday.

    There was a free update to PB/DLL 5.0 made available last year. The general update included an update to PB5.EXE that corrected a bug that damaged source files once they exceeded 64K.

    Email your PBDLL.EXE file date and time, plus your serial number & zip code to mailto:[email protected][email protected]</A> and ask the nice folks for an update.

    There have been no similar reports of such problems with PB/DLL 6.0.

    Folks, if you want to check that you have the latest versions of any PowerBASIC product, the current file date/times are listed at

    Note that PB/DLL 5.0 is no longer listed as has been superceded by PB/DLL 6.0.

    PBDLL 5.0 debugger problem

    I have experienced this problem several times. The loop variable in a for next loop will sometimes not increment when I run the loop in the debugger.

    This can occur in a loop as simple as:

    For X = 1 to 1000
    debug.print X

    In the debugger this will behave like an unbounded loop and print zeros until I stop execution. The compiled code always works correctly.

    Is this a know issue?
    Does the debugger in 6.0 fix this?

    I have also had the PB 5 IDE (PB5.EXE) kill my source file by saving a zero byte file over my existing source file. Again, known issue? Fixed in 6.0?
