Hi,

I would like to save a bit of disk space and chain the INI files from all three versions. Is this possible? I know it won't save but a few bytes at best od disk space but hey - some of us need more space!!! also be easier to maintain the INI files that way -

I have even earlier command processor versions as well, and do use the
INCLUDE directive. Read about it, and its various limitations in the V8 help
topic "include.htm". Note that for saving disk space you must think in
allocation units, e.g., clusters. It is unlikely that you have a cluster
size smaller than 4,096 bytes. The saving may turn out to be negative - one
cluster for the top level, and an additional cluster for each included file:
more clusters than you started with! You must also remember that directives
are sometimes dropped in newer versions, so blindly including the older
version may give you an error message. Only the maintenance aspect is in
favor of using INCLUDE.
