C.L.O.S.E - Text Editor

anuragcoder

Hi guys,
Here's my project finally.
It's name is C.L.O.S.E - The Command Line Open Source Editor
Please review and comment.

Mention errors if any,
Also, for this code to work.
Please download open.cpp, find.cpp, new.cpp, append.cpp, compile them and place all of them including the main source in a single directory. Now compile main source and run.

Anurag.

Personally I'm all against system() calls.

I have that itself on windows.
Can you please throw light on the topic?

anuragcoder -6 Junior Poster in Training

Also, a review of the program?
Suggestions
Comments.
Please

Well for they tend to make your application slower & inefficient. It's like using your furniture to produce heat, or calling a bull-dozer to open your front door.
The events taking place upon calling system() are roughly the foll:
1. Suspends your program.
2. Calls the OS Shell. (Slowest Step)
3. OS Shell finds the command.
4. Allocates memory to execute it.
5. Executes it.
6. Deallocates memory
7. Exits the shell.
8. Resumes your program.

You can try using ShellExecute() or ShellExecuteEx(), clrscr() & getch()
for their respective purposes of opening a executable, clearing screen & pausing.

Yep.. thanks...
Okay.. lets see C.L.O.S.E V4....

clrscr() and gotoxy() aren't common/recognized functs i think
(Coz i use Dev C++)

anuragcoder -6 Junior Poster in Training

Anyway.... I Dont See any delay in my prog when I use system()

Anyway.... I Dont See any delay in my prog when I use system()

That's because it's in milliseconds.

Haha hell yeah!

What would you want in V4?
