Hi Folks;
Just wondering if anyone has encountered this error with any of their
SQLWindows/Centura apps. We are presently running 16 bit SQLWIndows and in
the process of converting to Centura.

The problem is the client do not want to continue with this product if
the present problem cannot be resolved.

Thanks in advance.

I've never gotten a stack overflow in a production environment. Only time
I've seen it in development is when I screwed up a recursive call.

Can you enlighten us what you were doing and in which function this is
happening?.

Did you read their release notes?

Based on no answer back to the group on the replies already received (and
the mean hearted one in private to Krister) I would suggest the following
for your client:

To continue with this product, fire the programmer who is working on the
product. They would do better to find someone that can fix the problem
without insulting their peers.

Sorry Folks;
Apologies sent to Krister. Maybe I paid too much attention to the poem.
I will keep this in mind in the future.

It was not a poem but (AFAIK) a Depeche Mode song (and that's part of his
signature) !!!
His answer was only the «?» character :-))))

Never mind

Guy,

Apologies accepted. Sorry for my brusque response also. Please understand
that the people that read this list are people like you. What ever time we
spend to give answers cost us in many ways. We do not work for Gupta. Also,
many people do not wished to be contacted outside the list. Some don't mind,
but few if it is non-productive for both sides.

ok, but to your problem. As some have stated, we do not have enough
information to help point you to the problem. What version of TD or
SQLWindows, what version of the OS, what code fragment is causing the
problem? Has the program ran for many years and is now having this problem?
If so what changed on the system (even other than this program)?

Help us help you, ok?

Well, I have resolved the issue and from all indications it was related to
the actual size of the apt file. The application I maintain has 1 APT file
that calls numerous APL files (Building Blocks in addition to class objects
that were created internally) and incorporates 30+ quest reports.

The problem started when I attempted to copy/paste an existing screen for
the purpose of modifying to add a new report. The dlg was not that large or
complex. Once I did that I could not compile the apt. I managed to modify
the new dlg to the point that I did not have to use the same number of
functions. Eventually I did get the apt to compile, but as soon as I added
another line of code (didn't matter what line of code) it would not compile.
In short I had it down to the point where if I added another line of code it
would not compile.

I decided to split the apt into 2 (required a lot of effort) and got it to
work. The only thing is now I have 2 exe's rather than one.

As I have mentioned to the client, the real solution is to move from a
16-bit environment to the more robust 32-bit environment.

Some of the people I have talked to told me that to convert this application
into Centura (32-bit) via the migrator would be very risky. I was told that
where my application uses building blocks and other external
classes/libraries, they cannot guarantee me it would work. I would love to
be able to give it a try and see what happens. Any comments..

Thanks for all the help..

If the app links to a bunch of external 16 bit dll's you need to do your
homework and obtain 32 bit versions of those dll's.

SAL code without external reference will upgrade very easily. There are
only a couple of fairly obscure SAL function calls that won't move to 32
bit.

Remind your client that XP and Win2003 don't support 16 bit. It might work,
but... M$ makes sure they eventually collect all of their 'user taxes'.
