Does anyone have or know of a comprehensive but brief account of how to use Plato profitably? My program is stored in c. 180 source files of which 170 are FTN95 and 10 are in C.

I can create a project, add files to a project and compile FTN. I haven't tried linking yet.

I cannot manage the list of included files, e.g. I may wish to add a file near the start of the list that contains declarations etc that have to come before executable statements, e.g. module definitions.

I don't want to input 120 files then find that I have omitted a file that should be in position 3 of the list of files.

I am rather old for playing with Salford FTN95 - I am 73. Unfortunately, I have Parkinson's and occasionally twitch. If my hand is on the mouse during a twitch, then the file under the cursor, maybe plus a few others, flies off into the ether, I know not where. If I find an afflicted file, I cannot return it to its right position because I can't move it.

Thanks for any suggestions. Don't tell me to go away and shoot myself, because I haven't got a gun.

There is a section headed "Basic features of Plato" that you get from the Help menu then "Help on Plato".

You should avoid adding the "include" files to the project and the order in which you add the other source files should not matter. For safety just add them one at a time and compile each file before adding the next one.
