CTRL I can find, but 'break' not.

is there a hot key to break an endless loop which is running

OK I'm a bit rusty, haven't used qb seriously for about 10 years and I've just turned 80 My question is:- If, in programming in Windows XP and QB, if I inadvertently insert an endless loop into my code and run it before I find out that it is endless, what can I do to stop execution WITHOUT losing th...

Re: parsing concatenated statements

hello again, again,burger 2227 I must admit to having been stupid. The answer to my problem was staring at me. I had split the statement(s) IF fl = 0 AND gr$(x, y) = " " THEN i$ = gr$(x, y) :PRINT i$ into IF fl = 0 AND gr$(x, y) = " " THEN i$ = gr$(x, y) : PRINT i$ whereas I should have typed IF fl ...

Re: How to port code found in Windows .doc format to the qb6

How to port code found in Windows .doc format to the qb64 ap
