Error description

  • Problem
    If you are running batch DXL and it timesout by reaching the
    limit in the allowed number of execution cycles, you will not be
    able to determine why it has failed.
    
    When the same happens in a GUI session the user is presented
    with a message 'DXL Execution timeout: You may:' with options to
    'Halt execution', 'Continue' and 'Continue, double existing
    timeout'
    
    If you opt to halt the script the DXL error is given '-I- DXL:
    execution halted'
    
    In batch mode you get no options (what could be done with them
    anyway?) only the '-I- DXL: execution halted' error.
    
    To Reproduce
    Run the following DXL as a batch job:
    
    '
    int j = 0
    
    for (i=0;i?100000;i++){
            j++
    }
    
    print j
    '
    
    Using a command such as:
    
    'doors.exe -u Administrator -P password -b
    C:\pathToTheAboveCode\InAFile.dxl'
    
    Possible Workarounds
    Add a 'pragma runLim, 0'
