Newbie Question: Line Breaks?

Hey guys, I just started with QuickBASIC..

I'm just wondering how you put a line break in.. Because I'm playing around with INPUT and PRINT.. but I want to space them out (so each line has one Break in between).. Example:

Code: Select all

What is your name?

Your name is NAME? Wow.

How old are you?

You are EIGHTY NINE? Amazing!
That kinda thing..

You can use PRINT without any arguments to jump to the next line:

Code: Select all

also, just for your info:
chr$(13) is "carriage return"
chr$(10) is "line feed"

In ASCII files, a line break is made by having CHR$(13) followed by CHR$(10). When you are outputing to the screen with PRINT, though, you can use one or the other.

If you're printing to a file, the same concept works:

Code: Select all

Print #1,"A"
Print #1,
Print #1,"B"
Just don't forget the comma on the empty Print # statement.
