Problem with find_name

From: Gerald Florence (
Date: 07/02/02


I've been going through the Circle 3.0 bpl 21 and I keep coming
across the find_name not linked in error in MSVC++.  I did a
search in every version of the circle, thinking that somehow, either I
made a mistake and deleted it out or it was just plain missing.  I
have every version since 17, including 17.  I went out to the linux
box I had and compiled a version that the find_name function
missing and it compiled straight through.

What I am looking for is a version that has the function OR if
someone could direct me to a place that has the function.  I know
the function name says find name but I don't know how it was
implemented and I'm not experienced enough to try to reimplement
it.  I searched the list archives and the snippets and didn't find any
reference to find_name except as header functions.

I did find it interesting that interpreter.c, db.c, and mail.c, all refer to
the external function find_name, but not one file implemented it.
VC++ complained but GCC did not.

Oh, this is related to the Ascii pfiles snippet patch that I'm trying to
work into patch 21.

Could someone help out please?
