Guess I've got no excuse for my mistake. I've been programming in Creative BASIC lately, very similar to QB/FB in console mode.

My way:

Code: Select all

CLS 
DO 
  PRINT "Press key: "; 
  DO: k$ = INKEY$: LOOP WHILE k$ = "" 
  PRINT k$ 
LOOP UNTIL UCASE$(k$) = "Q"
END

Mentat, how does www.mentat.ortise.com sound? I've got a new host for Ortise and it doesn't use the Wiki anymore. I'll probably use the Wiki again while I'm developing the new layout. I can have as many subdomains as I want as well as restricted FTP accounts. If you want me to set that site up for y...

I can't remember the proper syntax of PAINT, but I once did it with it by painting in the centre of the triangle:
PAINT(width/2, height/2), fillcolor, bordercolour.

Hmm... Maybe this thread should be moved to the General board, seeing how it's not a QB/FB question as this the forum is intended for. Mac, which do like most; COBOL, VB or QBASIC?

Roy, I laugh at you too. When are you going to realize that FB is the present and future, QB is the past. Get over it.

No offence Lachie, but I do find you whinge a lot :cry:
Roy, this forum is not specifically QB. There's probably just as much QB here as there is FB. Your probably the only person I've come across on this forum that doesn't like FB so there's no use criticizing it.

To me QB is far from dead. I don't have much use for it anymore but today it popped up in my electronics class. I was very surprised that my teacher (quite an old fella) had experience in it, he was trying to show another keen student how to use QB and operate a 9-LED circuit through the serial port...

NaTeDoGG, could please explain how you find Java syntax far simpler than QB? I feel that QB programmers should stick with QB if they are getting somewhere with it and enjoy using it. But they should move on if they're only sticking with QB to be "loyal" and acknoledge the fact that there are many Wi...

I didn't get into making QB/FB games because I liked those 'abandonware'/'oldschool' games. In fact I never played them. I only got into QB/FB/BASIC programming because it was the first language I learnt and enjoyed it. I obviously still program in BASIC, simply because I enjoy it, not because I wis...

Code: Select all

[initialize]
   usrInput$ = ""

[main]
   cls

   print action$
   
   input usrInput$
   if lower$(usrInput$) = "restart" then goto [initialize]
   if lower$(usrInput$) = "quit" then end
   
   action$ = usrInput$
   goto [main]
Code like that is common practice in JB.

GOTO is fine with me. Currently I'm using JustBASIC and [labels] and GOTO are always used by myself and other JB'ers. Honestly I don't see what the fuss is about, I use it where it's most convenient, but I also use SUB's and FUNCTION's as well.
