Command r83.source.files Definition/BASIC Program
Applicable release versions: R83
Category BASIC Program (486)
Description discusses changes since R83 to the rules concerning Pick/BASIC source files.

In R83 releases, several additional "rules" were enforced. These rules no longer apply in AP implementations:

The ("d-pointer") entry in the md defining the location of the dictionary no longer must have a "dc" in attribute one, which defined the file as an object code file.

R83 format for the "object pointer items" placed after successful compiles in the dictionary level of the source file:

attribute description

1 cc object pointer identifier.
2 fid first frame-id of object.
3 frames number of object frames.
4 (null)
5 time/date time and date last compiled, in external format.

Pick prevents the use of the editor on these object pointers. Use the "list-item" or "sort-item" commands on the dict of the source file to examine them.
