    TCC 11.00.34 Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

    I have tried to run CHKDSK.EXE from the stand-alone TCC prompt. After some
    generic information about the target drive, it displayed the two lines
    below. When I pressed "n", the letter was displayed by itself, and the
    remainder of the message showed up. I suspect the problem to be in CHKDSK
    itself using line-buffered output, going into input mode (automatically
    suspending output) before giving time to display the last line. Could not
    duplicate in CMD.EXE, because it started the process without the message.

    Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another
    process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be
    n
    checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N) n

    Not reproducible here (nor is it anything that could possibly be affected by TCC.EXE).

    I thought so. I'll try to figure out what happened.

    Regardless, my original post was NOT emailed back to me after it was posted!
    I was getting ready to repost it, when I saw your response. Many of my posts
    to the TC Suggestions NG were likewise not returned to me, and have
    therefore switched to using this NG.

    The latest post in this NG, from MikeA, was delivered by email in a
    virtually unreadable format, with strange strings (HTML control strings?)
    embedded, e.g.:

    echo %@full[filename.txt (%@full%5Bfilename.txt)] > clip:

    when it should have been simply

    echo %@full[filename.txt] > clip:

    I am not sure how much of this is from my news reader, Outlook Express, but
    I doubt it would invent the extra string.

    You're probably either blocking the suggestions emails, or you haven't set
    the email notification in your forum setup. (There is an option specifying
    whether you want to see your own posts.)


    I do not monitor this forum when I'm compiling suggestions for new versions.


    That's the way it came from the OP.

    I am getting them, and my own "suggestions" post was emailed back
    to me on 2009-11-12. I have not been on the "forum setup" page in
    many months. The issue must be different.

    BTW, that 2009-11-12 suggestion was essentially a duplicate of the one
    I submitted in this forum today.

    That's too bad, many of the suggestions are here!

    I went to the browser view for the first time in months, and saw that
    there all was legible. Copy and paste to a textfile (using TCC
    command "TYPE CLIP: >! file") created executable commands and batch
    files. Did the OP post via email or via browser?

    I have no way of knowing that.

    Steve,

    There is a setting on the forums page to say whether you want to receive
    HTML or text email. If you state TEXT, then html emails come through
    looking like HTML code instead of formatted text. I discovered this when
    a bunch of Charles emails were coming through garbled. I believe he has a
    screen capture tool that captures his screen text in html.

    Outlook Express handles html email just fine. I suggest you change your
    settings at http://jpsoft.com/forums/profile.php?do=editoptions
