Major Major v. 2.5 (25/10/2017) Readme/What's new
LIST OF CHANGES Version 2.5 (25 Oct 2017) Fixed: missing blank line after header in the case where attachments are not removed. New rule: if only one of Major.INI and Major.TNI is present, then that is the one that both Admin and Major will use. Otherwise, Major.INI will be used. Fixed: my handling of an ERROR_INTERRUPT result from a DosWaitEventSem call was preventing Ctrl/C from terminating the program. After careful consideration of all the available advice, and some experimentation, I have decided that the best way to handle this "error", in the context of DosWaitEventSem, is to ignore it.
