Does anyone have an MIDI player??

....and preferrably not one that plays them in the background that requires drivers to be loaded, those sorts of programs have alot of extra baggage. I'm looking more for a basic Roland MPU MIDI player kinda thing. Any help would be appreciated.

Viewing long file names

Hello everyone,

Can anyone give a short demonstration or explain how you can view the long file name of files in DOS from QB? I mean, not using SHELL, but interrupts or something. Thanks.

Why not move onto Visual Basic .NET, or some modern Basic language? You've learned the most important Basic commands already.

Faxing through your modem

Hello everyone, I dunno about you guys but using the modem as a telephone is useless when you have a telephone!! Faxing on the other hand is a more practical use for it. Does anyone know of a basic, straightforward way to fax a file through the modem in QB, and would possibly not mind divulging the ...

Is there a way to use that nifty scroll thing on mice in QB? An interrupt or inp or something?

So which one do you feel is better, VBDOS or QB 7.1? Does QB 7.1 have keywords and features that make it more attractive?

I used to be a big fan of Qbasic, but then I moved to QB, and eventually discovered VBDOS. I thought using forms made programming a little more interesting. There weren't that many new features besides that.

VBDOS, the lost wonder of the Basic world

Hello everyone, Visual Basic for MS-DOS, or VBDOS, this has got to be the coolest thing, the highest evolution of Qbasic in the MS-DOS environment. It has features that the others don't have, and has form capabilities rivaling Windows! How many of you have tinkered with this thing? Another question,...

Hello everyone, I'd like to know if there is a way to modify .com files, or the code in assembly routines normally compiled as .com files, such that they can be executed using Call Absolute.
