I just got burned by a change made sometime after vers 1.1.1, and I
thought I'd pass it along.
In some parts of my app, I use "Open File for Read" and check the result
for "Can't open that file."...therefore determining if a file exists or
not. Well...somewhere a change was made from "Can't open that file." to
"can't open that file". Note the subtle differences...the leading char
is now lower case (probably NOT a problem) BUT... the "." at the end is
My workround (because I'm still straddling 1.1.1 and 2.0.3 in my
development for EXACTLY this reason) will be to use:
if the result contains "can't open that file" then....
Hmmm...wondering what else changed...
