1108 - Summary/Objective
110901 - Follow up ref SDS 3 0000, ref SDS 2 0000.
110903 - Submitted ref DIT 1 0001 to Morris that lists pending improvements
110904 - for Medit....
110906 - 1. The past few days we have discussed following pending Medit
110907 - issues...
110909 - a. Fix problem with scrolling macro using get command after
110910 - 386 cycles, per work yesterday with tst, tst1 and tst3.
110911 - ref SDS 3 JF6F and ref SDS 2 EE3F
110913 - ..
110914 - b. Eliminate default call to "profile," since that is no
110915 - longer used. If we keep it, avoid whatever is going on
110916 - that consumes memory, possibly causing problem #1, per your
110917 - analysis yesterday. ref SDS 3 XQ8I
110919 - ..
110920 - c. New command FLLN to put the last line number in a counter,
110921 - discussed on 031113. ref SDS 1 F64O

150402 - DOSE Temporary File Stored in Directory Not Root Directory
150405 - ..
150406 - 2. Another refinement that would help is to put the dose and dos
150407 - temporary file in a directory, and remove the directory each
150408 - pass, as you are currently doing with the file itself.
150410 - ..
150411 - 3. Sometimes SDS crashes in a dose session due to memory problems.
150412 - We have reduced this problem, thanks to an ideas you and Gary
150413 - have suggested, but the remaining scope of the problem still
150414 - results in accumulating temporary files in the root directory.
150415 - Other users don't know this is occurring and/or do not use the
150416 - discipline you discussed in your letter on 990816 based on
150417 - experience working with Boy Scouts, and so they wind up with a
150418 - bunch of strange files in the root directory and don't know
150419 - why.
150421 - ..
150422 - 4. If you put these dos and dose files in a temporary directory,
150423 - say c:\mjtmp, then they can be deleted with a single command by
150424 - deleting the directory. Would like you to continue to maintain
150425 - these temporary files in the current manner. However, we can
150426 - increase support by placing a command in the SDS launch op that
150427 - deletes the temporary directory at least once a day, along with
150428 - other similar tasks.
