vrf opening Vee6.0 program with HPVee5.0

Question asked by g.nied on Nov 18, 2002
Dwayne,

it is really not easy but often possible.

I would say, it depends on how important it is for you to have the code back in the VEE 5 mode.
First it must be clear, that it is nearly impossible if you have used any of the new features or data types of vee 6.
But if you didn't, you have to open your vee code with a text editor and must change some parts:
Mostly the problem is the conversion of data types in tranactions (Direct IO or To/From String).
If you open two VEE 5 transactions like
     WRITE TEXT 1 INT
     WRITE TEXT 2 REAL STD
the data types are converted to
     WRITE TEXT 1 INT32
     WRITE TEXT 2 REAL64 STD

If you undo those changes in the source code with a text editor and store it again it might be readable again by vee5.

Can anyone in this group tell me an easy way to take a program that was written in Vee6.0 and open it in HPVee5.0 without going through the entire program and fixing all the variables?

Thanks,

Dwayne Rowland
