Qbasic does not need a library to run ABSOLUTE!

Quickbasic 4.5 and 7.1 require a library for Absolute and Interrupt routines. Qbasic cannot run Interrupt routines.

Make a shortcut to QBX.EXE and add a space /L at the end of the command line in properties. You will have to use the File - Open program menu to run a program using a shortcut.

DOSBOX

Try DOSBOX for Screen modes other than default 0. There is a fellow working on a compiler that will work on 64 machines and use your normal 16 bit QB code. So far Galleon is doing a great job and he is adding some new stuff that will not affect the old code. Unlike FB. It is not done yet, but here i...

CREDIT?

What ever happened to the graphics text stuff Ildurest and I showed you?

Did we ever get credit or did you just toss it out?

Getting close now

Dan got covered with ice and the Steelers lost to New England, but we are just about ready to fire this project up! The coding is pretty much figured out. All we need is for the darn thing to work. Problems at bootup are going to need some new code and/or circuit wiring, but we have it working somew...

Your idea sounds very interesting. I will take a look! I hope you don't have to recode a lot of it when you convert it. And I hope that you can use the latest FB version instead of the older ones. If you read this entire thread, you will see various attacks to Mac for absolutely no reason. So Mac ha...

Why does Galleon's effort bother you? You don't use QB and you dislike the new FB! What is your pleasure? It is not bothering you if somebody prefers another avenue! Show me the code you are "proud of" if you have any. Give me some links and some of your code if possible. It is easy to talk stuff! P...

Yep

That is a problem with FB. It keeps changing and can require a lot of coding changes. That is one thing you will NEVER have to worry about in QB. Most QB users prefer it that way! It is a challenge to make things work with newer stuff. Presently a fellow named Galleon is working on a QB version that...

COM PORTS

COM ports read data, not usually pulses. Do you have an OPEN COM statement? QB can open only COM 1 or 2. Did you find the address from Windows Devices first? A COM port is capable of speeds up to 11,500 bytes per second on the data transmit and receive lines. You seem to be using the Modem Status Re...

Segregation

Thanks for the info on RLE bitmaps! I really don't see a problem with any programming language, but some are only interested in QB and some only want FB. Whatever! Yes, Mac would probably like you to come visit his site as it is one of the better sites for QB only. What is wrong with that? He comes ...

Mr Bad Box

Concerning your handle. I don't have a problem with it. I just wonder how you came up with it? I have never met a Bad Box yet LOL.

My handle is based on my last name. I have been called Burger for years!
And I ain't no kid sonny!

A 286? Wow, you need something a little faster. Try it on a friends machine and good luck. My old lady tossed mine out when she tossed me out. Unfortunately, I did not end up in the same garbage bin!
