    Hi,

    I am new to DFA Audits and using Allegro 15.2.

    When I Run Audit, following error occurs:

    E- *Error* getc: argument #1 should be an I/O port (type template = "p") - nil

    Can anyone guide me, what am i missing?

    Hassan

    The error you are seeing is from SKILL itself and on well written programs, end users should *NEVER* see such an error.

    The (getc...) function takes a "port" which is also known as a "file handle" (a pointer to an open file). The fact that it is being given "nil" means opening a file failed and the program did not have sufficient error checking to deal with this problem condition.

    In other words, the program you are trying to run is failing to find a file that doesn't exist or it is failing to open some file because of access permissions (no read permission, a full hard drive, etc.). Your guess which file this might be is probably better than mine.

    hope this helps,
