NUL

Recommended Posts

okay, i just made a script, it is 20KB.

I saved it, but right after I saved it, my comptuer restarted...

Now when i go to open it, I get a bunch of little squares that say, "NUL"....

Could someone open up my script, and see if it works for them?

Well... how would Scite write to a file... it can't just append data, because you can edit stuff in the middle. It obviously can't open it in read-only, because then you couldn't edit it. The only option left is that it clears it when it writes, and then writes everything in Scite into the fresh file. So therefore, when you interrupt that writing, you get nothing. Why that would lead to many lines of NULs, I'm not exactly sure, because I'm really not sure that's how the file is written. That's just what I came up with.

This sounds like memory corruption. You'r harddrive could be on its last months... If it starts making clicking noises, then you should consider backing up everything, because then its not far away from dying... Just a thought :o

i always save as

file1

file2

file3

and if something goes wrong on file4... i just re-start with file3

8)

-or- add this option to your SciTeUser.properties file to automatically create x bak files of your updated script:

backup.files=3

JdeB > Cool, i did'nt know about that. thanks
