Re: new version of swish-e-1.3.2-PHRASE (m) - Crash was my fault

Dear David,

It looks as if the crash I was getting in swish_132.exe and SWISH_2.exe was 
my fault.

I was using a modified version of the spider that wasn't passing back 
response files where SWISH expected them. Consequently the program crashed. 
Does SWISH ever check to see if it can load the files the spider outputs?

I'll now have a proper go using SWISH_2.exe.

Sorry for the false alarm.

Chris Humphries

I am not sure anyone has tested on NT.  I only tested on Windows 98SE.
This could be a potential problem.

PHRASE m is probably broken ;-)  Try SWISH-E 2.0 beta 2.  I have
executables at:

Did it indicate that it found any words?

Many new options.  Old options should not have changed.  (I think one or
two options were repaired after being broken in the 1.2 or 1.3 update.)
