The object files must be compatible with the Microsoft language family. If using Fortran, C or Macro assembler you first compile or assemb...

You must open the file as BINARY and then use SEEK to jump to a specific place in a file or a record. If you are using a sequential file where the records are of variable length then there is no way to accurately calculate where a record starts. If the records are of fixed length then you merely hav...

A bit late. I scratched and scratched until I found something. I turns out I did not use the Dir command. I used LOOK.EXE which is brilliant for this purpose- abolutely no processing is required. I tried it in XP and it still gives 8.3 DOS names. Using /Q switch it gives Drive\Path\Filename (Nothing...

@ Ted Now that is much easier. I haven't used the DIR command for ages. The last time I tried it was on WIN98SE, MS has since enhanced the DIR command. I tried /b on the DOS command line and it gave me the long file names. I see doing it from QB4.5 gives the DOS 8.3 names. It should now be pudding f...

Arow keys to select menu

Sorry I was blind again and did not read you last post. I see you only require the Arrow keys.
I can extract this from the module.
Please let me know how many items are involved and thereafter give me a day or two to see if I can help you.

I have quite a large FUNCTION ... END FUNCTION module where I select between 16 items on a MENU. Using a MOUSE, UP/Down Keys+Enter or typing the letters A-P (The 16 choices). Because you say INPUT and not Menu, I am not sure if this would help you. The Mouse was a routine I added to QB.QLB. moving t...

QLB library : linking 32 and 16 bit OBJ modules.

Thanks Opression. I have tried FBC but find that I must change too much in my programs for them to run using -lang QB or -lang fblite. -lang FB is virtually a totally different language to learn and does not have the ease and simplicity of QB4.5. As such it is closer to Pascal then BASIC. It also do...

QLB - QuickLibrary

The QB manual states that a QLB can be made using an OBJ file written in Microsoft Pascal, C, Fortran, MASM etc.
Does anyone know if a 32 bit OBJ can be linked to a QuickLibrary.

Dos to csv

Oh well.
error no 1. Dim shared Inn$(38)
error no 2. No error. Just to see what comment I would get.
QB4.5 Default is Long Integer. i.e. 2 Gig. So integer division \ is correct.
QB4.5 Data file record numbers. 2,147,483,647
QB4.5 Data file size. Available disk space.
