Search ?Bug?
« on: May 30, 2008, 04:18:57 AM »
I have a file that WordStar 2000 is choking on.

I open the file and search for "ure can".  Not found.  I press <Esc> to clear the error message and then <Ctrl-N> to search again.  This time, it is found.

The locate will work if I move off the first character of the file.

The working and not working cases are consistent regardless of whether I do so at the beginning of the editing session or do it later.

I have checked the file.  It does not contain anything but ASCII codes 13 (CR), 10 (LF), and 32 to 126.  The line that contains "ure can" contains exactly what it should.

I am running WordStar 2000 under DOSBox 0.72 under Window XP SP 2.

Does anyone know what is going on?
