QBasic libraries

Post by Valerie » Sun Jul 24, 2005 4:35 am

QBasic 4.5 libraries bundled with QB.

Is there a way of listing the contents of each library then finding out what calls each item.

e.g. I know that B$PESD is called to print a string and B$OPEN is called to open a file, is there a listing anywhere which indicates what library they are in and what they, and others, do please :?:

Thanks

HI Valerie, and welcome aboard.

To answer your quesion, you can go here:
http://www.ojodepez-fanzine.net/network/qbdl/

go to the QBasic 1.1 set of downloads and you'll see one there for the source code to QBasic one. QB 4.5 uses the same runtime so by looking into those files you'll definitaly find what B$COMMAND goes where :-).

Hope this helps

Use lib
[lib]
lib brun45.lib,brun45.txt,
[/lib]
It will print to brun45.txt the list of subs/functions of brun45.lib with the module they are in. Unforunately it will not tell you anything about the list of parameters.

Thanks Antoni.

A rare flash of brilliance struck me at 3.30 a.m. and I managed to hit pay dirt without first reading your last posting.

Many thanks for your help
