Abstract: 1. static variable, 2. system() or spawn*() call errror........
how are you?
i am not good at English...
my computer is pentium 130, ram 32M, os: win95 or
win95 dos mode with cwsdpmi  djgpp : v201

my program is big.. there are many external variable.
and there are many file I/O. 

1. static variable stack_m, stack_svcnt, sv_cnt 
   is can not save value 
   when next call in function MapStackProc.
   because, i change static variable to 
   external static variable. that is ok!! 

int MapStackProc(int key)
       static char *stack_m[10];

       static char stack_svcnt[10];
       static short sv_cnt;

2. i suppose that i 5 file opened.. in process..
   next i call system("./cobcomp -o ./aaaaa.cob ./bbbb.cbl");
   here, cobcomp is cobol compiler..
    this errno value is 22. but, cobcomp.exe is exist..
   because, i change system() call to spawn*() call..
   signal SIGSEGV receved... and error....
   error is same cwsdpmi and win95 dpmi..
   why?? i can't know..
   please, help me...
   thanks to you!!

To answer your first question, of course you can't define the same static variable
twice in a given program.  How is the linker to know which copy of the variable you
want to use?  This has nothing whatsoever to do with DJGPP; it's a requirement of

Hmm-m-m.  It seems to me this code needs to use Ralf Brown's interrupt list to
figure out how to get DOS to tell us how many file handles really exist.  That
would solve the problem much more permanently.

More after I consult with Ralf's files.
