Yeah, there doesn't seem to be much of a "scene", but like TCM said, there's probably a lot of people using QB and FB who you don't see on the forums.

Hi, John. You have QB experience, or are you just learning?

Hi David,
The QB scene doesn't seem too lively anymore. Bummer too. But there's a few really good sites still up (like Pete's) that have tons of information and tutorials.

Again, for the info- I'm working with the QuickBASIC compiler and linker from within Programmer's Notepad.

Burger, You're right, but in my defense, most of the programming and scripting stuff I do is really "just because". I'm still tinkering with QB even though there are a hundred better options. My laptop has some issues with the QB IDE's menus and the IDE also doesn't like the touchpad, so I use a dif...

I can hear crickets up in here, what's going on? Let's keep this place going. I know you're all still around... I have a batch file I use to insert SUBs and FUNCTIONs into code as I work on it in Programmer's Notepad. Here's the code for the BATCH @ECHO OFF :About :: O-------------------------------...

The problems might not be with the IDE itself. I'm running QB on a laptop with a touchpad. Much of the time I cannot get the IDE to respond to the movements on the touchpad and sometimes the menus will not work properly when I'm using my laptop's keyboard. I still use QB.exe to interpret my code. If...

I've had problems with the QB IDE, so I've learned to do things without it. I have a batch file associated with the .BAS file extension. The batch takes care of things. I just run .BAS files like an .EXE. With SYSTEM I never have to see the IDE

QB in Programmer's Notepad

I've been using Programmer's Notepad as a QB programming environment. I wrote a little article showing the basic setup . I only started working with Programmer's Notepad about two days ago, but I'm really digging it. I have written more tools than are covered in the article, but I wanted to keep the...

Oh yeah, the 'E' in your number just identifies it as a SINGLE.

I still don't know that much QB and know less about Blitz, but I just read about numbers in QB a couple of days ago. If I'm reading that number right, it's a SINGLE with a value of 1.496 times 10 to the 8th power. How you'd represent that number in Blitz, I haven't a clue.

Freeing QB from DOS

In QB Express #2 there was an article on freeing QB from DOS. I used the article to make Crimson Editor my IDE for QB projects. I am writing a little tutorial on the subject to be posted to my website ( http://www.jasbales.gamerpages.com ).
Should be up sometime over the next week.
