The history is relative to the version of 4D. A v13 page for the RESTART 4D Command does not exist.

The history may also contain the versions where the command was modified, and also has a very informative "new" icon that indicates that the command was either modified or created in the current version of 4D the document is pertaining to.

History for v17 SET DATABASE PARAMETER:



The SET DATABASE PARAMETER has been updated a number of times due to the increasing number of parameters accessable by the command. As show the command has been updated in v17 and as such the "new" icon is displayed at the top of the history list.

History for v16 SET DATABASE PARAMETER:



Unfortunately, the modifications are sometimes not easily identifyable. To see the changes the upgrade documentation or a compare and contrast of the pages can be performed.
