Unpacking file time data

Does anyone know how to unpack the encoded file time data to greater precision than the integer seconds that GETFILEINFOQQ and UNPACKQQ gives? I "thought" the file times were actually encoded to miliseconds, but the unpack routine only gives to even seconds. I'm trying to get a more accurate time stamp for photos shot during an auto-sequence and could really use fractional seconds.

Misaligned fields aborts compilation - but should it?

I am trying to compile f90SQLStructures.f90 from Canaimasoft but get the message that SQL_INTERVAL_STRUCT contains one or more misaligned fields. It is a compulsory warning in Visual Studio .NET 2003 when "unaligned data" are detected and, apparently, a fatal error. I wrote to Canaimasoft who replied that it should not be an obstacle to compilation:"The misalignment warning message can be ignored, it should not stop the compiler from creating the object code. The warning simply means that the record is not aligned in the memory as a multiple of the word size of the system.

user-defined syntax coloring in CVF



Does anyone know how to activate the user-defined syntax coloring in CVF (6.6.a)? From the manual it should be simply by "creating a usertype.dat text file in the folder where lies msdev.exe". But,
1. in my CVF, there is no msdev.exe file at all(only the dfdev.exe)
2. creating the usertype.dat text file close to that dfdev.exe (or anywhere else) doesn't make appear the expected option in the syntax coloring menu.
Any clue? or any add-on?
Thanks in advance.


Changing the Mouse

Is there a way to change the mouse cursor to another image? If so, could someone please provide sample code on how to do this? I'm new to Fortran and appreciate any help you can give a newbie.

Mouse Library

I'm in the process of taking old code that was written in some flavor of Fortran (Microsoft?) by another developer and converting it to the new version of Compaq Visual Fortran. Everything seems to be converting just fine with the exception of a call to mousel. From what I can find, mousel is a call to a function in Microsoft's Mouse Library. Unfortunately, I don't have this library or any documentation on understanding the syntax of the call.

GETOPENFILENAME & multiselection


I have one question.

Namely, I write application which uses function/procedure GETOPENFILENAME. Under structure type Flags I put"ofn_explorer .or. ofn_allowmultiselect" which means that I want Explorer-style dialog box and multiple selections of files.

But when I want to read or get information about selected files and directory in string structure type lpstrFile, I get only directory without files. How can I get full path and all files which I selected? When I exclude ofn_explorer flag (old style dialog box) everything is OK, but I want new style dialog box.
