OK folks, I'm fed up (again) by M$ help.

16-bit help file (3.1 compile) said:

{bmc.bat.bmp} Getout %!ExecProgram("ACROREAD.EXE FILE.PDF",0)

32-bit help file (4.0 comile) said:

{bmc.bat.bmp} Getout %!ExecFile("ACROREAD.EXE FILE.PDF",0)

16-bit help file works and 32-bit doesn't. I can get it to start ACROREAD
if I leave off the file name and vice versa (since my machine is
associating pdf's with acroread), but when I put them together the poor
little lamb "can't find" them.

Also, has anybody gotten exit() to function and if so, how? I want to
follow the aforementioned exec with an exit, but it doesn't exit.

Head banging stopping now.
