VRf-Importing VEE 3.2 in VEE 3.12

Question asked by VRFuser on Jul 7, 1996
Dear VEE-developers,

>From the exchange newsletter:

> We had a customer who had written a program in VEE 3.12, loaded it to VEE
> 3.2, modified it, stored it -- and then eventually found out he no longer had

We know the feeling:
We have 3.1 on HP400 (HPUX 9.0), 3.2 is not for sale !!!
We have 3.2 on HP700 (HPUX 10.01), 3.1 does not work on 10.01 !!!

And there we are, trapped !! Can you imagine the problems we have ?
It happens to us all the time. People make something in VEE on HP-700
and can't run it on the HP400 measurment systems (HP82000 plus VXI).
Why didn't HP make an option in the SAVE menu of the VEE 3.2 program
where I can choose between writing format 1.2 or 2.0 ??
This way, everyone benefits from quicker load times, but there
is still a way back to VEE 3.1 !

Just my thoughts !

Kind regards,

Frank Bouwman
