ILLEGAL FUNCTION,error,My2nd program

Post by GarryRicketson » Mon Aug 02, 2010 9:19 pm

:? Hello All,
I am baffled, this is going to be my final edition of this, but I want
to include a small game in it or "sortof a joke"...if and when I have a
real game, and know how to add it probely I will. The problem: every thing
loads and runs ok ,except when the user selects "J" for the game (it is not
really much of a game), the "game" runs ok, up to a point, I get a error:
LINE 171: illegal instruction, continue (yes), or (no)if I select continue it dose,
but step by step and of course no,exits..I cannot figure out why the illegal
function, the code that is in GAME: ran fine by itself,but when I added it
the problem started,....
Also or if anyone has a game they would like to give me, that I could put
in, that would be great!...I wanted to put in the LeapFrog, by Bob in the
samples folder,that came with QB64....but could not figure out how,and also
was concerned about permission....this program is for me,personal and anyone
who can use it....it will always be available free,at least on my website,
or from me,I cannot be responsible for what someone else might do, if anyone
should copy it and try to sell it, it is without my permision,but I kinda
doupt I need to worry about that, it is not that great,...
ok Thanks for any help,...and I am finding some great friends on this site!
Also note: In the introduction, I will be adding that I got the "Calculator",
of the samples,in QB64/samples/pete/calc...,and another friend ,anonymos(IOPNN), gave me the code for the multiplication tables,
and any other credit where its due,before I make the stand alone exe,
and put it on my site, or any other

I haven't tested your program, but I believe the error is in section:

Code: Select all

FOR i% = 2 TO 28
Align 13, i%, "El Cielo es Caiendo!"
Align 13, i% - 1, SPACE$(19) 
...
In fact, Align should print "El Cielo es Caiendo" at row I%, using color 13. And, in your loop, I% goes from 2 to 28; the problem is.... there is no screen row 28, neither 27... you have only 25 rows on the standard text screen (unless you set otherwise, using for example WIDTH 80,50 to get 80 columns and 50 rows).

When your program run, first (when I% is less than 25) it works well, then, when I% is equal to 26, 27 or 28, Align function is called, and the value of I% is stored in the r0w variable; when you try to use the LOCATE r0w command to access line 26, the program halts with an error: and, since the LOCATE command is at line 171, an error in line 171 is reported: actually, the real error is in the FOR i% = 2 TO 28 line (it should be FOR i% = 2 TO 24)

Thanks for reply,

Post by GarryRicketson » Tue Aug 03, 2010 7:12 pm

To, Angros47,
Ok thank you, that makes sense,...now I understand, (I Think),
so even if the numbers are not correct, I should be able to make the
adjustment; it is because I cut the code out of the QBASICS tutorial program, I guess thats obvious, and since mine dose not have the same
numbers of lines.....
Kind of a joke,but this is true, in another tutorial,
the writer gives an example of code to do a count,print routine 1 thru
10. and he comments, If you cannot understand this you really are in
trouble.....well I guess I am kins in trouble,...I am still studieng that also,
all though I sort of understand it, it is takeing me a while....anyway it
good to know where I can go, to get out of trouble!...thanks a bunch.
P.S. Is this the correct way to acknowlege a reply?
from Garry
PPS: I changed the 28 to 24, that simple,...as you said...so ok
that is solved...great! thanks a whole bunch! :D

Nice to see you using my Align SUB code there Garry.

I recognize it by the zeroes used in the variables.

If you want 28 rows use SCREEN 12.

29 and 30 will roll the screen PRINTs unless you use a semicolon after the PRINT text, but the SUB does that for you.

A note about the SUB. You can only print TEXT with it! Number values can be printed AFTER the call as the semicolon will grab the next un-located print. USE string addition(concatenation) and STR$ function to add numeric values, like so:

Align 10, 20, "He said he is" + STR$(age%) + " years old"

available I really like it,hopefully in awhile I will understand enough, to
write my own SUBs, and other code, I am going put in the links to
your QB64 download, and site, on my web page,if it is ok ?.....ok guess

Well, I don't have a site, but you can put my link anywhere you please. I appreciate it!

I still add updates to the Q-Basics Demo when I find something useful. Thanks for your support.
