Well, as I wouldn't use this as a keylogger or whatever, I am still curious as to what you would have to do. I want to make a "virtual keyboard" program for my TUI.

Yes, I think the quadratic formula would be the best way to solve it, since it works for ANY quadratic. PosX=(-B+SQR((B^2)-(4*A*C)))/(2*A) NegX=(-B-SQR((B^2)-(4*A*C)))/(2*A) as the quadratic formula has a plus and minus. However, if the discriminant (B^2-4AC) is negative, QB will generate an error b...

Re: How to make the computer think that a key has been press

How can you make the computer think that a key has been pressed? You can do this in QB by using INKEY$ or ON KEY. But you should expalin in more detail what you need or want to do. Regards..... Moneo He made a post about a keylogger before... So I'm guessing he wants to make a program that gets a k...

I don't know if this works in QBASIC, but another way to do it is to raise it to the power of 1/3. Example: num = num ^ (1/3) I don't have a terminal I can test this out on, but it is a mathmatically sound way to do it. If it doesn't work, it's QB's problem. If that does work, then this is a functio...

I was wondering the same thing: I've been developing a virtual keyboard program, and was wondering how to do this in QB. What ABSOLUTE calls would you have to make?

If you don't define a data type, doesn't QB automatically choose what data type would work best? If so, then I still don't understand the problem. But, like you said, I'm not able to run tests right now...

I have never seen these before.... They're great! It's better to let the world know that these types of people and opinions do exist, rather than to censor and ban these people just because you don't agree with them. I would rather talk to them and find out why they feel that way rather than persecu...

This is one of those inkblot tests that psychiatrists give you to find out if you are crazy. (If you're a programmer, then doesn't that qualify enough? :wink: ) Note: Make sure your BREAK works!

About the negative numbers, try this: PRINT Dec&("BDYSAUD", 36) That gives you a negative number because (I'm guessing) it "overflows" the 2,147,***,*** limit. That's what I meant by that. As for getting an actual overflow error, I have found what you mean. (FromDec$) I'm trying to figure out a less...

Two main reasons:

1. QuickBASIC is simple enough that it can be learned easily, so expanse that you could learn something new everyday, and so powerful (for DOS) that you can do most tasks using it.
2. It's vintage :) EDIT IN REPLY TO NEK'S POST: by today's standards.

I'm sorry, but you should pay more attention in your classes, as your professor would not give you an assignment that was not possible from what they have taught you. If you can't make the program, you shouldn't expect someone else to do it for you. Get extra help from your teacher. Then, you will u...

The Enigma only encrypts letters, right? (ASCII 65-91) - Therefore, not all 256-characters can't be encrypted, as only 26 are available.
