Re: sample of my problem keyboard file

It works! Thanks.

I see you also use lower case for commands -- I thought they always had to
be upper case. (Although I realize now that I must have used lower case on
the command line often.

Still got a question why my directory-wide search doesn't work, but will
work on it.

OK, I see what the problem is. Real-life examples help! It's the fact that the file, TF, already exists when you SAVEDEF to it. When the SAVEDEF command PRompts "Overwrite (Y/N)?" and you answer (whether Y or N doesn't matter), further KBD file input is preempted. Nothing after func XC takes effect. The solution -- I assume you're using Xy3 -- is to erase the file before SAVEDEFing, thus: 45=BC,e,s, ,1,XC,BC,e,r,n,v, ,\,A,\,T,F,XC,BC,e,s,XC,BC,s,a,v,e,d,e,f, ,\,A,\,T,F,XC,BC,GT,RD The sequence is: ES 1 (turn on error suppression to avoid a beep if TF does NOT exist); ERNV TF (ERase No Verify); ES (short for ES 0 -- turn off error suppression); SAVEDEF to file TF; Rub out DeFine You can save memory by shortening SAVEDEF to SAD, and by eliminating the commas after functions (not after individual charaacters!), like this: 45=BCe,s, ,1,XCBCe,r,n,v, ,\,A,\,T,F,XCBCe,s,XCBCs,a,d, ,\,A,\,T,F,XCBCGTRD Try it; it should work. -- Carl Distefano cld@xxxxxxxx ®LDį®DC1=1¯ ®LM¯®RM80DI¯
