I've tried out Basic by Mintoris and BASIC! + SQL by Paul Laughton from the Android Market. They're better than nothing.

I started using BASIC with my first PC (Timex/Sinclair 1000) in 1983, and later dabbled in Qbasic long enough to add some funny faces to my "gorillas", but never really got into programming. ... Incidentally, my job will eventually require the use of Assembly, to reverse engineer some rootkits to b...

Codemss nailed the essential purpose of pointers: memory management and speed. There's several practical uses for pointers. Here's two sites that discuss the use of pointers: (C++ is the context, but it applies to FB as well) http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/pseries/v5r3/index.jsp?topic=/com...

Source for QBasic or QuickBasic

Anyone happen to know if the source code for QBasic or QuickBasic (interpreter or compiler) has ever been leaked? and if so, where it might be found?

I don't know ASM, but I think I can give a possible method.

Code: Select all

Point to video memory address: 0 offset.
Get each byte of video memory and XOR it with itself.
That will reset all video memory to 0. Hence, blank screen. (Assuming of course that color zero is black.)

Actually, the quickest fix to your code would be to replace these lines of code: GET (0, 0)-(10, 10), Mario ... GET (0, 0)-(40, 3), Platform ... GET (0, 0)-(40, 3), PlatformM ... GET (0, 0)-(10, 10), MarioM with these: GET (1, 1)-(10, 10), Mario ... GET (1, 1)-(40, 3), Platform ... GET (1, 1)-(40, 3...

This should work. I'll post an explanation if I get a chance. You may be able to tell what was wrong by just comparing the code to the original.
