If your PC has the capacity, you might consider loading Linux into another partition. You seem to be doing a lot of Linux related stuff anyway.

You're right, it looks like you have a file generated by some Unix type program. Here's a piece of the documentation for a conversion program that I wrote having the same problem: PURPOSE: Convert a Unix generated report file to a standard text file with records terminated by a carriage return and l...

Re: Line Input Limitation?

Hello, and thanks for this forum! This question concerns QBX 7.1 and the LINE INPUT # statement. Quite simply, is there a size limit on the file QBX is trying to input from? I am trying to access a text file and as soon as the file is opened an ILLEGAL FUNCTION CALL error occurs. I played around wi...

Thanks, but I already knew all of that. What I wan't to know is, after you say open for input, I say input as #1, so that only takes the first file, and since it is in a do/loop I can't make it say anything else. Please help. Kindly expain yourself more clearly and precisely. You said:" after you s...

......how do I make an open for append statment and then make an input statment that will take everything from the file that I said to append? An OPEN FOR APPEND is very similar to an OPEN FOR OUTPUT. An OPEN FOR OUTPUT creates a new file. If you write 10 records to it, you will have 10 records on ...

It's written in C and ASM. I have some manuals but they just go on the things it does, not how it was written and why that way.

I'm living in Sherman Oaks. I know it's not the *hottest* place in the world, but I'm in a tight closet with no ventilation, and my roommates don't want to turn on the A/C so that we can save money on the electric bill. You can see how it would get pretty hot. But I'm not complaining...it's better ...

I am NOT good at managing large programs, but I want a small program that I can add on to. I need an idea! Anything, stupid and useless or dreadfully useful. A game... anything.

Seb, great, glad you found it.

Actually my manual is for QuickBasic 4.0. I run 4.5 and use this manual because I found it more complete than the 4.5 manual. There is probably a lot of newer stuff covered by PDS which, of course, wouldn't be in this manual.

Regards..... Moneo

Re: Nested function definition

While compiling the core, I'm getting a ' Nested function definition' error. I have no clue why....... I had never heard of "nested function definition", but found that it is valid in other languages. Perhaps the Function or SUB immediately before the Sub in question, did not terminate correctly wi...
