AmigaDOS 2.1 Datatypes?

Post by Thomas Wol » Sat, 10 Dec 1994 01:34:31



I looked in my AmigaDOS 2.1 manual, and it says that I'm supposed to be
able to use datatypes.  Is this possible?

The answer is no.  The manual for 2.1 was/is also the manual for 3.0, so
there are several items that are mentioned in there that are not
available to 2.1 users.

The manuals for WB 2.1 also covered WB 3.0 (reduced cost in publications
;o).  Datatypes is a 3.X+ only feature.  If you read the section again
carefully, I'm sure it will say this somewhere.

So in other words, no.

The 2.1 and 3.0 manuals are identical. At a few places you find remarks
(see e.g. c:Request#?) that some feature is only available in 2.1, others
only in 3.0. Datatypes are only possible with 3.0 or higher.
