I upgraded from KCML to KCML

During the upgrade I was asked if I wanted to upgrade TERMINFO and I said yes (stupidly).

Now CTRL/Break does not work under

I had backed up the contents of TERMINFO and have restored them but to no effect.

All other screen and keyboard fucntions work fine.

Any help would be appreciated.

To break to code:
$OPTIONS RUN byte 36 should be P
$OPTIONS RUN byte 53 should be HEX(01)

Don't recall how to change them without getting to code though - I'll have a look

I have 3 systems , all running the same programs.

My development system runs KCML: and works fine with Ctrl/Break.

The production/live system runs KCML: and also works fine with Ctrl/Break

The test/training system used to run KCML: (a clone of the live system as you would expect) until I upgraded to KCML: when I encountered this Ctrl/Break issue.

I have tried setting the $OPTIONS RUN bytes you suggest and the do not enable Ctrl/Break on KCML: They do disbale $END.

I am at a loss but then I am used to that.

What happens if you press CTRL + ] (Close Square Bracket) ?

Ctrl + ] does nothing.

Does that help

Just from bad memory (and I could be wrong here), but I think you have to recompile the TERMINFO file, the command tik <filepath> may do the trick??

Don't know, just try that (if it makes sense, if not - then I'm sorry)

I have been in touch with ADP/Kerridge and have been told

"From KCML.5.05 onwards, you will require to have "support" or "developer" license to be able to break into the programming code"

It seems these are free so thats good.

You are sent a program to run at command line level under DOS (getid.exe) and you send them back the results and you get a licence file back.

I will let you know if anything strange results but it seems that all that has happened is that the right to edit KCML programs is no longer automatic which in many ways makes sense to me.
