This is essentially an extension to this thread, but I've settled upon how I want it to work and how it's coded.
As this and subsequent posts are building blocks for my OS project, the first thing you'll notice is I'm using STDCALL rather than FASTCALL. Where stack need be aligned on 32 bit boundry, I'll code that into those procedures individually. Code is sensitive to following 5 conditions;
(b) Blank string (47 spaces)
(c) Leading spaces
(d) Trailing spaces
(e) Full string
Algo was tested with this. Null string can be simulated by placing a NULL in first postion of any entry. Procedure frame is superfluous.
