getting VB6 compiler to show all errors - not just one
Posted on 2005-04-04
With the vb6 compiler - the default behavior is that when it encounters a compile error - it exits the compile process.
the problem with that is - if you've got 30 bugs - you have to compile, fix, compile, fix, compile, fix etc etc
I'm a C programmer - and in C - if there are 30 bugs - you can tell the compiler to continue compiling and report all the errors at the end. Eg. lets say i change the name of a variable - it'll tell me all of the subsequent lines the old nonexistant variable name is used.
Is there a way of getting the vb6 compiler to behave like this? or do i have to put up with compile, fix, compile, fix...
