Found some issues in Comet 32...

Function BASE64()

Using an expression in the function will return garbage BASE64 string with the correct length.


Let String64$ = Base64(Sub(String$, 3, Len(String$) - 2), Err) ! Encode in Base64

But, if we use a variable it works fine:

Let String$ = Sub(String$, 3, Len(String$) - 2)
Let String64$ = Base64(String$, Err) ! Encode in Base64

First case will generate 4/3 bytes of garbage Base64, second case will work properly. Both generate the same length.

Functions InputFile(Filepath$) and PrintFile FilePath$ FileContent$

As far as I can tell, these are the only two file function that do NOT accept a shared network path for input or output.

I know CopyFile works fine, not sure about EraseFile.

I have the feeling that I'll have to do like Comet and print to $(CATEMP) and then CopyFile to network destination. I do hope that EraseFile works on a Network Share, otherwise I don't know how I am going to get rid of processed files.

I think FindFirstFile and FindNextFile works with Network Shares... I'll double check.

Tested on Windows 7 Pro running Comet32 2018.515
