#18 closed defect (fixed)

Build cannot find nllogo.bmp when building inf and hlp files

Reported by: jbs Owned by: Andreas Schnellbacher
Priority: minor Milestone: 2.0 beta
Component: Build system Version: 1.16
Keywords: Cc:


Using a fresh checkout of the repository, the build system is unable to "find" nllogo.bmp. The error message is:
makefile.txt(*): Warning: filename not fully qualified: bmp\nllogo.bmp

nllogo is still in trunk\arc\ipf\bmp directory where the "svn checkout" put it.

The consequence of this is that various pages in the the inf and hlp files display the "missing icon" icon instead of the proper icon.

As it turns out, the warning message may not be connected to the failure of the build to include certain icons/bmps.

The icons/bmps that are not being built into the INF/HLP files are the default link icons supplied with Hypertext/2 (for example, ns.bmp).

I always get the warning, while the bmp files where found. That's
because in Christian's htext.cmd version 1.07 the ipf file included
always the fully qualified filename. I've changed that, because then
an ipf file can't be distributed to be compiled on any other system.
The pathname is now in htext.cmd 2.00 shortened as much as possible
and always relative to the htext.cmd file.

I should probably remove the misleading warning message for not
fully qualified pathnames. But I notice that in your case the bitmaps
were not found. I don't have an idea anymore what went wrong on your

Hypertext/2 version 2.00 has bugs with relative paths:

  1. Some of them will not be made relative, even if they could, when parts of the path match.
  1. It would be of more use to make the paths relative to the current (compile) path, not to the ipf file output path.

This will be fixed in the near future.
