Error handling in Freebasic

Hi there I tried a QBasic style error handling subroutine in FBasic and received the message Illegal without the -ex option, found: 'Resume' In the Help section under RESUME, it explains that I must compile with - ex option. I have no idea what that means. Can someone perhaps explain? Many thanks Mi...

Blank spaces in Freebasic

Hi there

Blank spaces in Freebasic

Hi there

Is this the way it is supposed to work?

Thanks
