Problem with MkVer

#1
I'm playing around with some plugins and have a problem with MkVer:

Code:
C:\Temp >ver /r
 
TCC  13.04.52   Windows 7 [Version 6.1.7601]
TCC Build 52   Windows 7 Build 7601  Service Pack 1
Registered to ***********
 
C:\Temp >plugin
TCC: No plugins loaded
 
C:\Temp >plugin /l n:\!Admin\BIN\TCCPlugins\MkVer.dll
MkVer v0.92.1 loaded.
 
C:\Temp >echo %@mkver[vminst.log,4]
"C:\Temp\vminst-0001.log"
 
C:\Temp >echo %@mkver[vminst.log,4,1]
"C:\Temp\vminst-0001.log"
 
C:\Temp >echo %@mkver[vminst.log,4,1,_,#]
"C:\Temp\vminst_0001#.log"
 
C:\Temp >echo %@mkver[vminst.log,4,1,_]
All is working as expected, except the last try ( %@mkver[vminst.log,4,1,_] ) without "endstr".
At this point TCC crashes.

What I just downloaded shows me still version "v0.92.1".

Charles:
This plugin sorely needs examples of what it does. Other undocumented points:
- can the latest version be accessed (typed, executed, etc.) by the base name, or only by using its version code
- can older versions be used by base name and version code
- can all versions reside in the same directory, or do I need at least two directories (one for current version, another for olde ones)

Some of these issues might be plainly explained in Jim Millard's posts; if so a hyperlink would do the trick.

I'm afraid I don't understand your questions. The function just returns a unique filename; it works much like @UNIQUE, but it doesn't create an empty file. Using the filename -- creating the file -- is up to you. In most cases you'd simply COPY the original to the new name.

I'll bet your browser has a copy cached. Try forcing a reload of the page, or just copy it at the command line:

Code:
copy "http://www.unm.edu/~cdye/dl/mkver.zip"
"MkVer v0.92.2 loaded." It is working fine, thank you.
