  • bdebugger c:\cmd\cd.btm /?
    • ide does not start
    • bdebugger help is displayed, RC=2
  • ide c:\cmd\cd.btm /?
    • ide does not start
    • nothing is displayed, RC=2
  • bdebugger c:\cmd\cd.btm /h
    • ide starts
    • %1 correctly set
  • ide c:\cmd\cd.btm /h
    • ide starts
    • dialog "c:\h was not found" pops up (note / swallowed)
    • %1 is not set
  • ide c:\cmd\cd.btm arg1 arg2
    • ide starts
    • dialog "c:\arg1 was not found" pops up
    • dialog "c:\arg2 was not found" pops up
    • %1 and %2 are not set
And while on this subject (I can't remember if I asked this before) why doesn't

alias ide=`*bdebugger %@search[%1] %2$`

work? ide cd /h pops up "C:\%@search[cd].cmd was not found".
Or if that can't be made to work, why doesn't bdebugger/ide resolve aliases and search the path?

I have this workaround,

alias 4trace=`keystack ! "bdebugger %@search[%1] %2$" Enter`

but its klutzy and sometimes still fails.

OK, so most of what I complained about for IDE is explained in the help---I should RTFM (obviously the F stands for Fine). The following

  • bdebugger c:\cmd\cd.btm /?
    • ide does not start
    • bdebugger help is displayed, RC=2
  • ide c:\cmd\cd.btm /?
    • ide does not start
    • nothing is displayed, RC=2
  • ide /?
    • ide does not start
    • nothing is displayed, RC=0
are still problematic, especially the first one. Another minor item (but you did say you were still working on the help) is that BDEBUGGER displays the quick help from V9 (with lots of options) and IDE does not display quickhelp at all.
