FFIND goes crazy

I issued
Code:
FFIND /s /t"setcopy" *
in a directory whose tree contains 710 files totalling about 10MB. After a lot of beeping (I figure FFIND was looking in binaries) it started to spew out empty lines. It did that for about four minutes before I pressed Ctrl-C. When I pressed Ctrl-C I got a somewhat odd "TCC has stopped working" ... odd in the sense that where it typically says "Close the program" it said instead "Restart the program". Here are the details of the crash.

I tried again pressing Ctrl-C after only 10-15 seconds of blank lines. Again I got "TCC has stopped working" ... this time with the typical "Close the program" and these details.

Not reproducible here. What happens if you add the /H option?

The details aren't useful, as the crashes are occurring in Microsoft's code. Do you have a TCC.GPF file?

There's no GPF file. And it definitely depends *where* you do it. I was doing it in my project directory for TCSH (lots of OBJs and one or two EXEs). No doubt the text is in at least one OBJs. That would account for all the garbage and beeping, but not for the subsequent behavior I reported. If you want to try it with that exact set of files, I zipped up the directory and put it here: ftp://lucky.syr.edu/TCSH-build.zip.

The command was
Code:
ffind /s /t"setcopy" *

Did you also get rid of all the beeping when FFIND spews out characters from a binary file? If so, nice touch!

I have no idea -- I couldn't reproduce the problem, so I didn't do anything to fix it.

I did add a check for the bell character (& replaced it with a space) when writing to the console.
Hmmm! The problem is gone. Perhaps all the beeping caused it in the first place.

So the PC speaker will no longer go crazy if you happen to FFIND some binary files by mistake?

That has always annoyed me, but I've been so used to it back from the DOS days, I never considered it could be fixed!
