We could use an update in participation around here! All I do anymore is control spammers. This forum has become a satellite of QB64 forum. Is there anybody, here, who still use qbasic? Or everybody uses qb64? Because, for qb64 users, there is no point in using this forum. Also, the site is almost ...

You complain about a file of 150 kilobytes ? Nowadays there are hard drives with a storage of 1-2 Terabytes , and files of 1-2 Gigabytes can be downloaded in half an hour, and you care to spare 20 kb? Well, the compiled file is so huge because it include also some runtime libraries (i.e. all the stu...

QBASIC is for 16 bit x86 processors, smartphones use 32 bit arm processor. And qb cannot be recompiled for smartphones because nobody here has the source code (only microsoft has it); there is a pseudo-source code of qbasic, but it's in assembly so it's still processor-specific. QB64 can, in theory,...

In FreeBasic, you can do that by using a function pointer.

In QB, you'll have to use CALL ABSOLUTE... but your function needs to be written in assembly (qb itself doesn't allow function pointers)

QB legacy

QB64 is considered the heir of qbasic. But there were other offrings: the most know is FreeBasic, but do you remember XBasic? Xbasic, like QB64 and FreeBasic, has been originally written in QB, then it became self-hosting; and, from it, originated XBlite. And who recall less fortunate compilers writ...

Once upon a time... QBasic

I was looking some old qb e-zines (my favourite was QBCM), and a thought came in my mind: in year 2000, there was a lot of speculations and previsions about the future of basic. Somebody said qbasic was dying, and somebody proposed solutions. There was no dosbox, no qb64, no freebasic... there was o...

Have you tried booting your machine in DOS mode? You should be able to do that using mouse only, from windows. If your keyboard works in dos, it's a setup/driver problem, otherwise, it could be an hardware problem. If it's an hardware problem, you can determine if it depends on computer or on keyboa...

1) A program compiled with qb contains not only your code, but also runtime code (i.e.: the PLAY command provides a true mini-language, it needs a sort of "interpreter", and it will be included in the .exe file, consuming memory) 2) use COMMAND$ variable: in your example: myprogram.exe /h ...

I haven't tested your program, but I believe the error is in section: 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 2...
