Pronoland,

What I said in my last post assumed that your opening QB through Windows, not the DOS prompt.

I suspect that you're asking how to start the Quick Basic Interpreter not the Compiler? Do you have a finished program that you want to compile into an EXE, or are you just starting out and want to write code in the Interpreter? If you're just wanting to learn & write code then just double click on ...

The only way I've found to keep QB from hoging all the processor resources while doing something else in Windows is:

Select "Save" or
Save As or
Run your program until your at the "Press any key to continue prompt".
Doing any of these things makes QB release its hold on the processor.

You can download QB4.5 here: http://www.brisray.com/qbasic/qdload.htm I know nothing about this sites files as I have my own version of 4.5. The files at this site should include all you need. including the compiler. If I were you I would choose version 4.5, also known as QB45. It is the most popula...

Thank you. "FIX(N) looks like the way to go for me. It's the only function, of the three I mentioned, that doesn't change the integer.

Thank you for the infomation regarding the use of operands and their pitfalls. Actually this operand (\) is working well in my code. The only time it throws a curve, is if the user inputs something other than an integer. Which they shouldn't do, as they are instructed to enter the Numerator first an...

Hi All, Thank you for the replies and the time you spent trying to work this out. Of course you're correct, and I shouldn't attempt to DIM the value as an integer. I neglected to mention that this number starts life an improper fraction. As it turns out , the forward slash ( \ ) operator was just wh...

Splitting an Integral Number Into Two Parts

Hello group, I need to instruct QB to split an Integral (Integer ; Decimal) number into to parts. For example "1.75". I want to be able to work with the Integer and Decimal portions of this number as two independent numbers. Currently, my program does not create or call a file, or a record in a file...

Thanks for the input guys. I installed the Belkin drivers on my W98SE machine but it's not working at all on that machine. Not even in Hyper Terminal. If & when I get it working on W98 I will try Commport access through QB, and I'll let you all know what happens.



Thanks,

OPEN COM() Problems with Belken USB/Serial adapter...HELP!

I just installed a Belkin (F5U109) USB to Serial adapter on my XP laptop which has no serial ports. I assigned it to COM1 in the Device Manager and attempted a Hyper Terminal connection through one of my old Hayes modems. Windows recognized it as a serial port and the connection went off without a h...

Confused! "LINK" command???

Help PLEASE! Below is a copy of the help file that was supplied with Mblfn322.zip. I have a suspicion that Hans Lunsing is someone you're all familiar with.

FILE RE-NAMING Program

It's the new old guy again. Does anyone know anything about Hans Lensing? He evidently created a library that will enable QB to handle file names longer than the 8 character limit.

Update On QB45 IN XP

Hello all, I did some experimenting with the following operations while running XP. QB newbie's, like me, may find the results useful. My goal was to see if there was a way to run QB and Pete's QBASIC simultaneously with out experiencing sluggishness in the XP IDE. (1) Opening and running QB from th...
