    I hope it is okay to ask something about a downlevel product.

    _? is documented to contain 0,1,2 or 3.
    I have a "start"-command where it returns: 1330597711
    (This is 4F4F4F4Fh)

    Why is this?
    What does this mean?

    Is it too soon to bump this question?

    BTW: It is *NOT* 4NT8-specific. It happens with other shells as well.

    Does anyone know the answer?

    --OR--

    Rex,

    Do you want me to open a [Private Support Incident] for this rather
    insignificant matter?

    Okay, thanks!

    I'll adjust the scripts accordingly.

    (4DOS on WinME returns 0, 4NT6A on WinME returns 4F4F4F4F;
    you learn everyday.)

    When you run 4DOS on Windows ME, you're using the external START.EXE utility, so _? is irrelevant.

    You're right of course. Overlooked that little fact.
