Subject: Re: BDOS Function: Search For Next
The way Serch For First/Search For Next are intended to be used is:
1.) seed an FCB with ????????.??? and call Seacrh For Next
2.) while it finds one:
Copy the name into a second FCB and process the file.
3.) Call Search For Next using the FCB the previous Search call returned.
It is not correct to use the same FCB for search, then immediatey use it
for Open, Read, Close, then expect it to continue the search.
