Thanks for that, that's fixed the writing of the files! Dunno why that's
happened only on this machine. 

Is there a limit to the number of files on XP - like the old config.sys
option files=99?

I don't think so. With issues - can't open port - I exit with a "return -1"
otherwise I just fall out of the bottom of the main(). 

chkdsk fixed errors this time, but I still have the "problems with the file
system" error (maybe a red herring), and ...

I still can't redirect output. Any advice on this v gratefully received.
