    You could always open your own files in assembly written routines. . .

    Easy. Turbo Pascal can open as much as you got

    file handles.

    on config.sys add/replace line

    files=15

    with

    Files=32

    and now you should be able to open 32files at time.

    if not send some mail to me, and i'll give

    you some source to do this 'hacking dos'.

    Changing the limit in config sys does not do it. DOS limits pascal exes to 20 files.. pascal eats 5 and you are left with 15. I now code in C++ Builder but we maintain a legacy system with over 2.5 million lines of code and it's in there somewhere.


    If you still need this info, send me an email and I will post an answer here. I don't want to dig unless you still need it. Good luck.
