you are welcome and thanks :)
your original posting and Krzysztof's reminded me so much of what i use in some
of my TP6 stuff... but what i use is slightly different in that it uses typed
constants and modifies them in the executable during execution...
one purpose of this would be to limit the execution of a trial program to only X
executions or that it will only run for Y days after it is first executed or
even a combination of those such that only X executions are allowed within Y
days and if either is reached, then the program stops...
i also used this technique to store registration data and options settings
directly in the executable instead of having a separate and external
i can post those old sources if anyone is interested... they only need ask...
the sources are dated May 1993 and i likely saved them from the Fidonet PASCAL
echo (message area)... they might have even ended up in the SWAG archives but i
don't know ;) -=B-)
