Windows
From: CHARLESAM To: RANDYKWILSON

Randy, can /w be created? Or does it just have to be in memory? I tried to
open /w with no success. Yet the same commands work fine on other windows.
Here is what I tried;
iniz /w;wcreate /w -s=02 00 00 80 24 00 09 09;shell i=/w&
The above doesn’t work, the window gets created but the shell doesn’t fork.
If I sub /w1, it works fine. Forgive me, I’m dumb about these things.
In the meantime, I’ll try running SC in /W1 from startup. Charlie

    Why not just do a :
    supercomm <>>>/w& in your startup file, I believe supercomm sets up its
    own window parameters. /w is the “generic” window descriptor, and tells
    the system to use the next available window.

    P.S iniz’ing windows is an ugly thing to do…

    Thanx Paul, that explains alot. Instead of assigning specific windows, I
    just assign W and let the file use the next avail. window. Do I have to iniz.
    those windows or just W?
