Newsgroups: comp.sys.amiga
Subject: new "why" CLI command
Message-ID: <8705180636.AA04155@cogsci.berkeley.edu>

This is a replacment "WHY" command.  Compared to the standard AmigaDOS
version it:

1> Gives more information.

   Fail code 20, error code 218; device (or volume) not mounted

3> Can be translated from what ever language it is in now, to German, 
   French, Italian, Russian or even English.
   
2> Is faster since the old "why" actually just called "c:fault"

3> Gives useful information even if the C: directory is not on-line
 
4> Can be made "RESIDENT" since it does not call c:fault

5> Is innocent of the ->weird<- ways that BCPL programs work.


See the source which will appear in a few days in comp.sources.amiga for
the full scoop.  (C)1987 Bryce Nesbitt
