Subject: Want flg on ADDTOFILE so it won''t ask "new file?" question

I call MAKEFILE in CALENDAR to save reminders.  I''d like this to happen quietly without the need for user intervention.  Unfortunately, when the file is first created, you get a TTY window for MOUSE asking "new file?" to which you have to reply yes, and on subsequent saves you get another window with a "Can''t find original version, shall I TCOMPL it instead".  Is there any way to avoid this, and if not can I put that in as a request for some future release?  Thanks.'

You want to call MAKEFILE from the user without the need for user intervention.  If you call MAKEFILE with the OPTIONS = (C NEW), it will not try to copy old source or compiled code, so you won''t get the "Can''t find original version, shall I TCOMPL it instead" message.  Getting rid of the "new file?" message is a little harder.  This is generated by the function ADDTOFILE when you try to add a definition to an unknown file.  Question': how do you generate the filecoms for the new files?  I think that if you just consed them up yourself, and called makefile, that you shouldn''t have any problems.'
