For more information about serial debugging see Advanced Serial Debugging Guide.

Thanks All - Topic solved.

While the wiki is currently being updated and contains mostly older documentation and methods.
ALWAYS refer to the latest dos.doc autodocs for the latest release info, it will be merged into the wiki as time permits.

For example;
Please revisit the dos autodocs and DO note that notifications should always be allocated with AllocDosObject() now
rather than the OS3 method of manually allocating memory and initialising the structure.

Also, be aware that you now have the ADO_DOSMethodOnly tag, (to set; nr_Flags |= NRF_DOS_NOTIFY_ONLY)
which will provide a consistent and low overhead notification, regardless of the filesystem support status.

Don't worry I always do, the SDK browser is always my first point of call, then websites. But yes it is easy to get 'best practice' versions combined, I had this when handling multiple windows, wondering why I keep getting crashes, turned out I was using IDoMethod for opening windows and IIntuition->CloseWindow to close, of course unaware of the other bits Class methods do.

Note I'm also working on getting our autodocs online as well but that project is a bit more involved...
