DCS6: Associated Programs: Passthru

Over the past three days, I have gone from working associated icons for associated programs to a full system of data passthrough, including support for archived and unarchived main progams and data files. The screenshot below demonstrates all four combinations of archived and unarchived program and file, all of which are now operational. In the process, I discovered a few nonfatal but nevertheless fixable bugs that remained within ASM execution routines. I plan to now take a short hiatus from the associated program routines and redevote my energies to fixing the multiline text input routine for the GUI API. If I can complete that routine and doublecheck all three of the text input routines, I should be all set to release Doors CS 5.8 Beta 1, which I plan to release around the various calculator forums to begin to raise awareness and allow programmers to begin development for apps to be released concurrently with Doors CS 6. It should also allow a wider set of bug checking and reporting to occur. In the meantime, please take a few minutes to go to the Doors CS documentation hub, http://dcs.cemetech.net, and fill in any information you may know and be willing to add.
