its because 5 / 9 * (f - 32) = -17.77777778. f = 0. what you have to do is put the LET c = 5 / 9 * (f - 32) AFTER you input f. so like this: INPUT "Please enter a temperature in Fahrenheit"; f LET c = 5 / 9 * (f - 32) PRINT "A temperature of "; f ;" degrees Fahrenheight equals "; c ;" degrees celsiu...

well, you have inspiration listed in the coffee house description and then you have a seperate forum called inspiration, change the description to something like, get support or something. Also, try posting this on other, more active forums, such as: http://forum.qbasicnews.com/index.php and http://...

hmmm.... well, it should probably have its own catergory, since its different from the other ones. The description should be something like "Code frying your brains? Come in and relax for a bit.". Basically, it would be a forum where the programmers could talk about whatever they wanted, it would be...

seriously, I think you should consider calling one the coffee house forum, because every other basic forum has everything you have there.... .....which is what I thought you were trying to avoid.

well, this is just a minor point, but you have it checking for left or Left...etc, what you should do is use the ucase\$( text\$ ) or lcase\$( text\$ ) commands. ucase makes the string all uppercase, and lcase makes the string all lowercase so like this:

Code: Select all

``IF ucase\$( d\$ ) = "LEFT" THEN GOTO 1 ``

I believe, though I can't be sure, that the original usage of the word hack was tied to computer technology at the creation of the first video game, the description of which I don't remember. why it was called a hack, I'm not sure, but it could have been because making a game on the computer was pre...

Yeah, but sometimes a bug isn't one rebellious command, but one resulting from the whole structure of your programming. Or else sometimes you don't write your code to be scalable (able to adapt to accept more info/changes) and then you realize that you have to expand, and find that you can't. Debugg...

well, then you can define it like this and not waste memory:
Dim Shared Parame(1 to 50) as PARAM
that way it starts at one and contains 50 elements
