Right. This window would be better titled "Build Log". > c) When Compiling, a second window appears, called "errors" - even > though the first window also contains errors and warnings - > presumably, one window is generated from FBtoC and the other from > gCC.

The Errors window appears after the build, if warnings/errors (from either FBtoC or gcc) were encountered. It is special in that double- clicking the error or warning takes you to the source code. If there are no warnings/errors, the Errors window is not shown at all. The (soon-to-be-so-named) Build Log is always shown during a build, and indicates progress by listing the FB files translated, then the C files compiled, with warning/errors as they occur. In the FB_5_3beta editor, this window stays open after the build is complete, whereas in FB4 and FB5.2 it closes immediately. Robert P.
