I wish I'd thought of that in designing the 1st... I thought about passing the version... but the earlier code would still have to be rewritten .... THOUGH, it is SIMILAR to what I was thinking about... and that is adding a new param, that the new stuff looks for but if not there, uses old behavior...(I think someone else suggested similar)...
Still... gonna have to look at use more ... sounds like there may be some version stuff I missed...
Though I'd think I'd go the opposite on the defaults w/o the version number.
I don't want to have to support old stuff forever. So unversioned calls would get the newest behavior. It's assumed that most people want the newest and latest and greatest unless they really ask for the the outdated stuff, I don't see why software should assume the opposite is true.
Imaging if people ran programs that didn't ask for a version on Windows 7 and got Dos 1.0 behavior... :-)....pretty screwed up eh?
