LPRINT AND XP

Only issue is to adjust the printer properties each time want to use QBASIC and the must boring is probably to have to s...

CINT new surprise

Here is a new issue. The code is: L = (CINT((36.5106 - CINT(36.5106)) * 100) / 60) PRINT L L2 = (CINT((CINT(36.5106) - 36.5106) * 100) / 60) PRINT L2 The first one is negative ,The second positive. Not really a good surprise. It is added to CINT(36.5106) whic gives 37 In other words I really don't k...

INT OR CINT

Great! fortunately, I can use CINT but it will limit the program to QBASIC.
In fact INT was commun to QBASIC and GWBASIC this is why I took it.
What about FIX ?

INT SURPRISES

Can somebody explain how I can get the value I want: h=44.10 D1# = INT(h * 100): PRINT D1# D2 = 100 * h: PRINT D2 BASIC Answer for D1# is 4409 and not 4410 D2 answer is 4410 How can I have 4410 with INT fonction? (h can be 44.1035 for instance. I need that INT to cut at that point the 2 last digits)...

DEGREES TO DECIMAL

Come back with this line:
(conversion DD.MMSS to decimal
LAs = INT(LAs) + ((INT(LAs * 100) / 100) - INT(LAs)) / .6 + (100 * LAs - INT(100 * LAs)) / 36
Result is wrong. I cannot see where
ex angle Las is 17.2100 Caclculator gives 17.350 in decimal, this program gives something else!

Finally, I think I will have to redefine variables as long as I want to save in a file and cannot write something like
PRINT#1,PRINT USING "POINT1 **.******,**.******";LOI1;LAT1

Save colors.....

This question was in my mind for a long time. Identical issue is to print directly from basic to printer. I know it works when changing several commands but I never tried....and the third one is to stop screens page after page, to have time to read first results.Only possIbility I see is to use view...

SAVING COLORS

This time, I use instruction COLOR to enhance QBASIC sreen but when saving results in a folder with instruction OPEN " ",#1,"WHATEVER"
I get all lines in BLACK. Could the solution be to save the results directly on WORD but is possible?
Many thanks in advance for help.

Repeating same calculations with incremental variable

Can you tell me how it is possible to use a loop to make several time the same calculation:exemple
Y=SIN(A)
with A= 2,3,4,5 etc
something like
FOR N=1 TO 10
PRINT Y=SIN(N)
NEXT N
Many thanks in advance

DEGRES CONVERSION

I have difficulties to transform DEGRES as used in programs (DD.MMSS) DD=DEGRES, MM=MINUTES etc; 24DEG 45MN 30S = 24.4530 as input in DECIMAL notation (24. 75833) I know it's elementary but for some reason I cannot find the actual number. I suppose that the code (3 lines) exists somewhere.I didn't f...
