I'm a long time QB user at work - an engineer, of course. Suddenly I"m having a very slow response when I do my FO - it takes about a minute to display the directory structure and since I'm about 4 layers down it takes about 4 minutes or so to open the code. This is very annoying! We're using WIN XP and I'm wondering if the auto upgrades through the network are the problem, although another guy here is not having this problem. I've asked the IP person but she's just a "kid" and has no idea about QB. Has anyone experienced anything like this and have a solution?
If you can compile it in QBASIC then you can compile it in FreeBASIC (With regards to code size) keep in mind that old archaic commands and QBASIC hacks wont work.thammel wrote:Gee whiz, I'm just looking for some help. I realize that QuickBasic is an old tool and part of this stems from the fact that I'm an old engineer!!! (56 now) The problem is that I've got many large programs that have been developed over the years and it would be very inefficient to have to re-program these into other languages. They work fine and do the job. The pain of it is when external things like the OS mess up operation. I'll look into all the suggestions you guys have made to see if I can get around this. My current code is a multi module code with maybe 25 subprograms. Do you think FreeBasic would handle it? I have no knowledge of FreeBasic and will look into it.
