segment, or file, depending on platform). The value is a

direct method tries to create the lock
structure directly; the
monitor method asks the Texis Monitor
to creatre it. On some platforms, such as Windows 2008 and later,
ordinary users may not have permissions to create the OS object
(e.g. global file mapping) needed for the lock structure. Since the
Texis Monitor often runs as a service under Windows - with elevated
SYSTEM permissions - it may be used to create the object on
behalf of the Texis process.

Whether to issue "REX: Unneeded escape sequence ..."
warnings when a REX expression uses certain unneeded escapes. An
unneeded escape is when a character is escaped that has no special
meaning in the current context in REX, either alone or escaped.
Such escapes are interpreted as just the literal character alone
(respect-case); e.g "
\w" has no special meaning in REX, and
is taken as "
While such escapes have no meaning currently, some may take on a specific new meaning in a future Texis release, if REX syntax is expanded. Thus using them in an expression now may unexpectedly (and silently) result in their behavior changing after a Texis update; hence the warning message. Expressions using such escapes should thus have them changed to the unescaped literal character.
If updating the code is not feasible, the warning may be silenced by
setting [Texis] Unneeded REX Escape Warning to
no - at
the risk of silent behavior change at an upgrade. Added in version
7.06.1465574000 20160610. Default is
yes. Overridden by
unneededrexescapewarning SQL setting
If on, an ORDER BY rank (or rank-containing
expression) uses legacy version 7 behavior, i.e. typically orders in
numerically descending order, but may change to ascending (and have
other idiosyncrasies) depending on index, expression and
flag use. If off, such ORDER BYs are consistent with
others: numerically ascending unless
DESC flag given (which
would be typical, to maintain descending-numerical-rank order).
The default is on, but will change to off in version 8.
Can be overridden by the
legacyversion7orderbyrank SQL setting
Added in version 7.06.1508871000 20171024.
Note that this setting may be removed in a future release, as its enabled behavior is deprecated. Its existence is only to ease transition of old code when upgrading to Texis version 8, and thus should only be used temporarily. Old code should be updated to reflect version 8 default behavior - and this setting removed from code - soon after upgrading.
[Texis] settings are specific to Texis Web Script (Vortex).

see the "Configuration Settings" section of the Vortex manual.
