    Rodney... AWESOME work and greatly appreciated. Not to look the equine present straight past the gums, but would this be easier in some sort of database format with viewer (like gbThreads) that is more easily updated routinely?

      Thank you, George!
      For compilation purposes, yes it would be easier, but this way it can be made available right from the PowerBASIC IDE, with context sensitive help and the include files readily available, and simplified with the use of templates.

      Like gbThreads, MACROHELP is another tool, usage is entirely up to the coding population.

      The version I'm currently working on will be the most onerous, but subsequent ones will be a piece of cake. Having said that, I don't want to drive users wacky by providing an update every week so it will likely be 3 or 4 or 6 or 12 month intervals, and depending on forum input.

        At long last, I have completed version 2 of MACROHELP.

        For those interested in statistics:
        429424 characters
        1100 keywords
        769 topics
        17,968 local links
        129 MACRO FUNCTIONS
        224 Multi Line MACROs
        747 Single Line MACROs
        1100 total MACROs

        There are 3 files in the attached zip.

        There is only one *.inc file to be placed in the WinAPI directory(or your $INCLUDE directory) as support code is now in the same file as the MACROs.

        The *.chm file and the *.PBKeys file go in the 'bin' folder of your IDEs.

        A known issue concerns the following MACRO:
        MACRO NUL = ""
        This is because the MS CHM compiler will create a blank page for NUL, %NULL, $NUL, $NULL, NULL, and %NUL.
        This MACRO is included and works, there just isn't anything on its page in the compiled file.

        This version works with both PBCC 6 and PBWIN 10.

        There are now 3 sample code templates in 'Attaching to the PB IDE'

        I have a light-hearted approach to this, so don't be offended by out of context comments.
