This is my first post so hello everybody.
Right down to the good stuff. I am having major headaches with spawn . We have a system that opens about 18 files and needs to keep them open. However when these files are open I cant make a program spawn it reports too many files.
So I added code to increase the DOS handle count from 20 up to 50 using interrupt 21 function 67 thinking this would allow it to work. But, it didnt.... after writing a small test routine to check stuff out it appears once i open 15 files i cannot spawn anymore child processes even with the interrupt call.
So my question is, is there a limit in the spawn function and should the interrupt call change it.
Sorry for the long post but I have to tell someone.
