Assuming the current working directory is c:\btm and it contains testme.btm

TCC 9.02.154 Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
"bdebugger testme" works

TCC 10.00.41 Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
"bdebugger testme" works
"ide testme" displays a message box saying "c:\btm\test was not found"
"\tcc\ide testme" works

WAD - the BDEBUGGER command knows that you're trying to load a batch
file and will search for & add a missing extension. The IDE command is
more generic (the editor supports a lot of other file types) and it
cannot assume that you want to edit a batch file.

Then "\tcc\ide testme" should fail since I don't supply the "btm" extension. Both debugger and IDE are listed as internal, and on their shared help page, they appear to be interchangeable. Seems to me they should behave the same way. Not that I'm complaining, I'm just sayin', I like the IDE.

You should never run IDE.EXE independently; if you do, it's going to
always interpret everything as a batch file (because it's missing the
arguments being passed from TCC.EXE). It will definitely not work at
all in future versions.

Re: v10

I am a little confused about the V 10 beta. I thought I read that V 10
is supposed to allow dragging files to the folders or list view. If I
am right, how is that supposed to work?

Re: v10

I was trying to use it as a replacement for explorer by dragging a file
from List View to Folders View. I found out that it does not work that
way. Explorer does work that way, so it has to be possible.

Re: v10

There were also explorer-like programs that added a file viewer, and
included the drag from List View to Folders View. Is this operation
being considered for V-10?

Re: v10

Is there a What's New or FAQ for v-10 that does not require installing
the beta?
