strange error

Post by SebMcClouth » Tue Aug 09, 2005 3:21 am

After a tiny mistake: replacing sub sumfin as function sumfin, I got the message: duplicate label. Then I renamed function sumfin back to sub sumfin. Everything fine and all... NOT! I can run the program without any problem the first time. When I want to start again it states: duplicate label on every line!!!

How can I solve this?

Unfortunately, no one can be told what Qbinux is. You have to see it for yourself.

After running it for 3 or 4 times, qb crashes, and dos states that EMM386 found an error... great...

You're using too much conventional memory, and/or string space.

QB fork up being QB and all..
I have left this dump.

Is your program already really large, or are you making some assembly calls? If no to both, it might not be that. Try saving your program as "plain text", then open it in notepad and make sure that when you change your SUB to a FUNCTION that QB didn't accidentally make a duplicate in the source, leaving the original there. I don't know that it *would*, but if it's saying duplicate label, that's what I'd check first.

Try loading QB using the /ah switch... and other than that, use chains, overlays... and FB for dos, lol. Works on dos 6.22 over here.

Mabye should program in FB. I am sure it would be easyer, then you could also make a port to go to windows and stuff for the f*cking m$ fanboys...

Might replace QB 4.5 with 7.1. For some reason, which only Z!re knows.

And yet using MS-DOS is somehow not being a Microsoft fanboy? :D
