Fossilised remains - 04/01/14 07:54 AM


I'm unfortunatly a user of a piece of fossilised software - PReS 2000 102

Updating to a version from this centuary is not permitted here.

I have a manual and a help file. Both refer to the abilty to 'debug' 'step through' and use 'break points' - just like a real language.

Wilst I have a 'debug' check box in the compile menu, I cannot set break points or show a debugger toolbar.

I have tried setting keyboard shortcuts and viewed all menus to no avail. The antiquated piece of software just ignores the inputs with no indication that its aware I have pressed a key.

Is there anyone still living who may remeber this unpleasent beast? If so, perhaps you may know what I am doing wrong?

Thanks in anticipation of any help, in case this is premature - any one have a sturdy piece of rope?

I'm sure this was a great product in its time.... just wish we were not still trying to operate it so far after its 'use by' date.

As you noted, v2000 is quite dated and unsupported. The current version is v6.30.

In the PReS IDE editor, when you select your output language, look up a few lines and ensure "DEBUG" is checked. This enables the functionality in print controls. Then you can access debug features in the print control.
