LOTUS "BUG" NOT A BUG

LOTUS "BUG" NOT A BUG

Gerald Fuller's "bug" (Fall, 1991, page 3) is not really a bug. Just finish the keystrokes and the file will be printed to disk. Namely /Print File <name> Range a1..xx Go Quit.

Now, if you use Filer, you'll find that the named file is full. Lotus writes the file to a buffer when you use "Go" but doesn't flush the buffer and close the file (updating the DOS directory) until you press Quit. If you "peek" at the directory before closing the file, DOS will tell you that the file is empty. This is sometimes advantageous. You can press ESC or Ctrl-Break and abort the operation before the file goes on the disk, as long as you don't press Quit.
