Re: BR Limit (2**15/2)-1 = 16,383 Line #'s

The limit is the total number of line numbers specified, not the actual line numbers.

Actual Line #'s may be between 00001 to 99999.

BR Limit (2**15/2)-1 = 16,383 Line #'s

As we know, everything has limits. In BR, a program has Line #'s, and they are limited to 16,383 lines. You can add many lines of code to 1 line In the following example I am using only 1 line: 10 A=1 !: B=2 !: C=3 It seems that BR doesn't gracefully complain about an error at compile time, instead ...

Folder Name -- Picker

I am looking for a utility that will display a dialog box and then request the user pick a folder.

I know that BR has the "NAME=OPEN:" command, but that is a FILENAME picker, and I only want them to pick the folder.

Does anyone have something that I could use?

Re: MFA authentication using BR's HTTP Client

Nice tool! In our application, I create an environment variable that stores an encrypted "Hex Code." In the setup routine of my primary library, I check to make sure it's properly configured, and if not, then I trap it for "Unauthorized Use." Sometimes a sophisticated user will t...

Re: Printing a Signature

I am sure this solution falls into the "Costs A Fortune" category: https://www.wycomsystems.com/

I particularly like their solutions because you lock the solution with two separate keys. Both the Manager and the operator need to unlock the device in order to print checks.

Re: Mixing Keyed and Relative File Access

Your example reminded me why I don't use REC= for updating keyed files. BR is being helpful and is adding a NEW INDEX ENTRY, but it's also keeping the "OLD INDEX ENTRY" as well. I think that's a "Bug" and that BR should be deleting the original key information. If you run your pr...
