Set IBlock To


Namespace: WIN_COM_API
SET IBLOCK TO (numeric)

Another dBaseIV compatibility command.

If I remember correctly, dBaseIV came out with a lot of incompatibile function names, hoping that Fox Software would appear out of step and not part of the dBase standard. This is one of them (of many).

VFP does very little error checking on this one.

SET IBLOCK TO 390842039420398409
SET IBLOCK TO -32094209340923488
SET IBLOCK TO [test]
SET IBLOCK TO DATETIME()

All appear valid...

The latest Hackers Guide documented this one...
