You are dealing with a relatively difficult API to program with, and I too
wished Autodesk put out specific groups for just arx programming.
However, take my advice and spare yourself countless hours of trouble with
crashes and access violation:
USE SMART POINTERS WHENEVER OPENING AUTOCAD OBJECTS!!!!!!!
That is, wrap any object you open for reading or editing into a smart
pointer that automatically closes (object->close()) the object!
Take my word for it, you will be glad you did! Autocad is VERY intolerant to
objects that have been opened without being closed (it always crashes), and
this is one the most common sources of faults in any arx program.
Thanks for the info. I set up a directory and data files for Forte
Agent to access this server, but all the messages seem to be HTML
attachments. Agent cannot see these as HTML.
How do y'all view the messages on this NNTP server?
Yes, it is too bad that Agent does not handle it well.
Use Outlook Express (that you already have) or
use a shareware newsreader.
