Comments
  • Quiz:0) What does dvngm mean?1) Which pdf file contains the document titled "ABL Reference"?It would be really nice if the extremely irritating (at least IMHO) 5 character naming convention being used for the documentation pdf files were to be abandoned in favor of meaningful readable names (lowercase, without embedded spaces, please). Also, the zip file that contains all the pdf's has a pile of useless directories with 1 file in most of them.

  • 0) OpenEdge Development: GUI for .NET Mapping Reference (this one I had to look up).1) dvref.pdf (this one I knew)But, that's a great suggestion! I often need to send the document names to clients to point them to the right chapter in the docs. And that would really help.

  • Agreed! These unintelligable names are a real pita.

  • Use the start.pdf file from the extracted .zip file to access the PDFs via their titles.  This file appears at the root directory of the zip.  There is also a readme.txt file which has some additional info about using the PDF files. The file naming convention has a long history -- it's a legacy situation from when we were delivering DynaText documentation (file names had to be less than 8 characters, etc).   It's not as simple as just changing the file name (I wish it were), there are other "plumbing" changes that would be required to do this.I have added notes above to point people to the start.pdf file.

  • Wouldn't it be nice if the table above contained the revision dates for the individual PDFs? If x.pdf changes, do I have to redownload all the PDF pages to have interdocument links (and searching) work?

  • Wouldn't it be nice if the table above included the date it was updated?
