CALL ABSOLUTE

Post by Seb McClouth » Thu Mar 16, 2006 4:56 pm

Is there a way to call ABSOLUTE with having to compile the qb.lib along with it?

grtz

i think that you need qb.lib while you are using the interpreter, but i could be wrong

I don't use the interpreter... just the command line to compile...

Hrm...can one use DirectQB if they don't include directqb.lib? :D

Of COURSE you need qb.lib if compiling code with the Absolute function. :D You need the .qlb in the IDE, but the .lib is for the linker.

Okay, that true... I did sumfin else... instead of using qbx.bi, I have included the necessary things from that in my own .bi file... and ofcourse linked the qbx.lib along with it.

thx

Stand alone run time library with error handling and floating point routines for real mode? Something like that. IF you look at a list of the run time libraries from 7.1 or VBDOS they start to make sense when you compare them to the compile options on the interpreter's "Make EXE" dialog.
