    Hi

    This might be undocumented and for good reason:
    It gives Rex freedom to change things.

    Is it documented anywhere what order TCC does thing on startup/shutdown? I mean processing of TCSTART, TCEXIT, the startup options etc.

    Thanks

    you be more specific?

    Hi

    That is what I meant (and any other detail fleshed out). Is it documented as such?

    Cheers

    Help topic "autobatch.htm" states that the location of TCSTART can be
    specified in the .INI file, which IMPLIES that the .INI file must be
    processed first.

    Rex:

    1/ It would be useful if the order of events during starting and stopping of
    the command processor were documented.

    2/ I did not find OPTION dialog entries to control the StartupFile and
    ExitFile directives introduced in V7, nor any documentation. They ought to
    be in help topic "autobatch.htm", which only mentions the now obsolete
    method of specifying a StartPath without TCSTART to avoid using one.

    Perhaps I did not say it eloquently enough but that is exactly what I meant.

    Thanks Steve

    It is documented in "TCC Startup Options", but it has changed in recent
    versions of TCC and in different versions of Windows.

    Why do you need to know?

    There never has been, because they're not useful and have been retired.
