[access-uk] Re: Please can somebody tell me if this is a bug in XP Home?

Blimey! Do you know that in Properties>Summery   page there's a Comments edit 
field, probably to add those sort of comments about a file rather than in the 
file's name?

Cheers,
Amro

  Greetings,

  I've just had a sort of thought.

  I've worked as an assembler-code programmer back in the early 1970s in
  system 470 UserCode, which is not unlike IBM's InterCode, in working with
  base-displacement addressing, meaning the relative address is dynamically
  calculated from the command's position in memory plus or minus the address
  of a known register.  this set me wondering.

   The file name being moved is:

  c:\attachments\Classic Serial The Complete Smiley - The Karla Trilogy Book 3
  - Smiley's People 3 - Smiley moves the operation to Berne. But can he be
  sure he's the hunter, not the hunted.wav

  it is being moved to:

  k:\Radio drama and readings\Classic Serials yet to be processed\Classic
  Serial The Complete Smiley - The Karla Trilogy Book 3 - Smiley's People 3 -
  Smiley moves the operation to Berne. But can he be sure he's the hunter, not
  the hunted.wav

  I am wondering not the **file name** itself being too long, but remember I
  issue the copy or move command which, though in WindowsXP home, still
  results in machine code and all commands have a length attribute so perhaps
  this is the actual problem rather than the file name.

  As the basic addressing system is based on the kind of commands we used in
  UserCode, they had the format:

  register1,displacement1,opcode,length1,length2,register2,displacement2

  The opcode was a hex value, the lengths were single bytes maximum value
  hex(ff) = 256, displacement took 3 bytes, i.e hex(ffffff) and register took
  one byte, i.e hex(ff).

  I would be interested to know exactly what this move breaks down into as
  regards low-level machine code.
