OK, I found it...in my personal directory. The program looks great. Is the program still being developed? Thanks for all your help, both of you.

Hmmmmmm...

Well, the installer ran great, and started two instances of the program when done, but when I type QB64 at the terminal, nothing happens, and QB64 doesn't appear anywhere in my Start menus.

I think Ubuntu would like to add QB64 to the Ubuntu Software Center. I don't know how all that works though.

Thank you so much. I tried downloading and installing all the libraries, but there was one that I couldn't find on the server. Hopefully the installer will work.

Thanks, Captain Obvious :roll: In Windows I also have to listen to my fan blow full speed constantly, and smell my processor frying. I just started using Linux, and amazingly, my processor usage now stays below 10% most of the time, even when running MS DOS as a virtual machine on top of Linux. My t...

I will check out those books. One question though: how different is quickBASIC from QBASIC? Thanks for replying.

Norton QBASIC book

I saw on Amazon that there is a Norton book about QBASIC. Does anyone know if this is a good book? How thorough is it, and what topics does it cover?

Thank you...

So the reason I didn't see anything before 14 was because of ASCII code 13, which executed a carriage return. As you can see, I've never written a program using ASCII codes :oops:

First Program

Last night, I wrote my first QBASIC program, which went something like this: CLS FOR I% = 0 to 255 PRINT CHR$(I%); NEXT I% END For some reason, the program began by printing ASCII character 014. I couldn't figure out what was going on, so I tried changing it to this: CLS FOR I% = 1 to 256 PRINT CHR$...

Yes...

I looked at QB64 on the website...it looks great. I'll probably switch to it in a year or two, but right now I'm tryinq to get my DOS skills up and running. I just ordered QBASIC by Example, and also Norton's huge DOS 6.22 book. I thought about buying the Revolutionary Guide, but when I saw that the...

Hello from new member TuLithu

Just thought I would introduce myself... After using Windows XP/Vista/7 for years, I decided that I would like to learn more about programming and operating systems, so like a nutjob I installed xubuntu and VirtualBOX running MS-DOS 6.22. Wow, talk about WAY too much to learn at once! At first I was...
