[Pxpprg] / [Pvxprg] program file header
« on: January 05, 2022, 08:55:09 AM »
Hi


Best wishes for 2022 to all


I cannot remember if there is any system parameter that would prevent PxBasic V10 to overwrite the [Pvxprg] header (as created by Sage PVX v9.10) with [Pxpprg]
This way I could use PxBasic's *IT editor to do some coding in the old app I have to maintain and programs would still be readable & executable by ProvideX


TIA

Stéphane,

There is no way to override the program file header in PxBasic, however more importantly you should not be using PxBasic to develop/maintain commercial applications.  It is intended for personal or educational use.

The following is an excerpt from the PxBasic license:

Quote
You may only install and use your licensed copy of PxBasic in a manner that is not primarily or otherwise intended for or directed toward commercial advantage or private monetary compensation whether direct or indirect.

The full license can be found here.

PxPlus does allow the override of the program header and in fact uses the legacy [Pvxprg] header to preserve compatibility with older products.
