DOS PARTITION: "I/O ERROR" MESSAGE RUNNING 16-BIT COBOL COMPILER
Posted on 2006-06-24
I use an older COBOL compiler, "mbp", which has a huge (26K) file of just one line with all the
compile-time error messages. At the end of a compile (in the DOS partition)
In Windows 98, 2000 and XP the compier chokes when trying to access this file with a message
"I/O ERR ON FILE ERRMSG.DAT".
Are there any ways to increase FCBs or other resources in Windows DOS partitions so that the
compilermight be able to open this file?
