Very useful Esgici.

I am very particular about the fonts folder for HMG_HPDF. Thanks.
East or West HMG is the Best.
South or North HMG is worth.
...the possibilities are endless.

Hi

Found a more sophisticated and useful sample :

http://www.hexcentral.com/articles/foxpro-folders.htm

This is a foxpro function and seems could be adapt to Harbour.

But require a bit low-level expertness; because include something like shell32, ole32 :(

I hope that my amigo Pablo Cesar could achieve this task.

TIA

Yes, I'm only programming by hobby and fun (*)

(*) I did my first virus (memory-resident Trojan in C) when he was 16 years old, all I did was clear the screen every 5 seconds and display the message: "This computer is with diarrhea", was very fun to see the cries of my friends... "teacher, teacher, teacher, the computer is with diarrhea?" and the professor responded: "computer with diarrhea? you all are crazy !!!"

Best Regards,
Claudio.
