I am having problems with the checktable subcommand. I am working with the
attached file. This is the file you suggested we create a while ago. When I
created it and ran lou_checktable on it in Linux I would get errors. I never
got any errors in Windows. Now I don't get any errors even in Linux.

I deleted the dot pattern of "13" and ran lou_checktable on it again. This
time I got 2 errors. I did the same thing in Windows and ran the checktable
subcommand and no errors were found.

Two questions:

Why does the original badTable file pass the test in Linux and it didn't

Why doesn't the checktable subcommand show the errors after I delete the dot

What results do you get?

Best regards from Ohio, U.S.A.,

Hi Vic,

We can set a release date and include whatever is ready at that time. 
August 1 seems like a good date, since there may be a lot of changes 

checktabloe works for me except that the messages are on the console 
rather than in the log. That is one of the hard to find bugs, because it 
involves both BrailleBlaster and the C libraries.
