cool

I downloaded your prog, will give it a whirl when I can. Nice to see people trying to use Qbasic to do something "different" than most people think Qbasic should do. Yeah, SPAMmers are a pain. Using encoded, hidden fields, and action names which constantly change based on the date has worked well fo...

close/re-open file

The error INPUT PAST END OF FILE occurs because the file pointer has already read through the verses.txt file, and you're letting INPUT keep reading the file without pointing it back to the beginning of the verses.txt file. There are several ways to fix the code. Probably the easiest way without re-...

Same here

I don't remember exactly how to do it (it's been at least 4 years since I did it last!) but information on how to do it isn't hard to find. I believe the syntax is something like... link /qu bcom45.lib mylib.lib or something like that...meh...I forget. :D Heh, I had forgotten how as well, so I look...

I think it's a great issue, as they always are. I'm going to try and work up a tutorial of some kind and join in the fun.

The only way I know of adding remarks to the end of a DATA line is by putting a colon at the end of them, like this: DATA 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000: 'INTRO CUBE DATA 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000: 'ICE CUBE? I didn't know about that trick until last year, and I don't think the QB manual even menti...

If I recall correctly, the source to Qbasic 1.1 was supposedly included with the DOS 6.22 source code leak a number of years ago. It was in there because DOS's text editor is Qbasic.exe (start Qbasic like: Qbasic /EDIT). Those who claimed they obtained the stolen code said Qbasic was coded in C & AS...

This report site is a cool idea.

I happily registered. No problems logging in here.

Hi CDRIVE. Don't know if I can help you directly, but maybe I can help google search a solution. As for me, I've never been able to get any USB device to work under DOS.
