Wow, obviously you didn't read my alternatives. The For( loop area could be removed and replaced, it's slow.

Anyway, if the list is in the archive, how do you plan to access it? I'd like to hear that one.

That's what I wanted to know. :) But I can't call QBASIC slow becuase I came from TI-B. 0->x Lbl 1 Disp x x+1->x Goto 1 Cycles once per a tenth of a second. QB counts to somewhere in the tens of thousands by the time TI gets to 10. But: For (X,1,1000) Output(1,1,X) End Runs 100 cycles per second (i...

Well, in that case it might be better to use the WRITE and INPUT # commands. For instance, to load/save your first set of the 6 coordinates would look something like this: 'Saving code FileHandle = FREEFILE OPEN "YourFile.gam" FOR OUTPUT ACCESS WRITE AS #FileHandle FOR A = 1 TO 6 WRITE #FileHandle, ...

Re: Text Saving and Loading Help?

Not going in order, but it makes more sense this way. 2) How do I save in the best format to .DAT? This matters on your application. If you are just doing an RPG, the best way might be to just to save strings containing your information, but it matters on what your needs are for this program. 3) How...

People, please use code tags. It makes your post a lot easier to read, as some of you just randomly put code anywhere in your post, and sometimes it's hard to differentiate between the code and your post.

Code: Select all

FreeBASIC has a number of different reasons as to why it's faster. First off, FreeBASIC is for use in 32-bit processors, meaning it's incompatible with the older 16-bit processors, but can also use new instructions not before available to older processors. Also, FreeBASIC does less stuff between loo...

All programming languages (except Assembly) are interpreted languages, meaning that another program has to convert it into machine code to put it into a runable form, which is commonly known as compiling. In this sense, all programming languages should run at the same speed, right? Wrong. Q(uick)BAS...

If I were to give a guess, I would say Microsoft's old C compiler would compile it, but note that this assumption has no base :P

You have to DIMension the array before you use it. And then you have to pass it to the SUB. ie: DECLARE SUB MySub (Array%()) DIM SomeStuff%(5,5) MySub SomeStuff%() SUB MySub(Array%()) FOR A=1 TO 5 FOR B = 1 to 5 Array%(A,B) = A*B NEXT B NEXT A END SUB See if you can make heads or tails of that, and ...

About the worse damage you can do in QBASIC is POKEing to random places in memory, but with the program protections, even this is hard to do any real damage.

The PAINT command fills the ball so it's not just a circle, but a filled circle. He just wanted to make it look prettier :) The GET statement saves a picture of the ball starting at (14,14) and ending at (26,26) [those are screen coordinates]. Then he saves the "picture" of the circle in the variabl...
