 Or if you have a chance reply here,...
 Some came from qb64.net and we already knew each other, but others, I am curious on that,..How did you find this forum ?
thanks From Garry
Hello again everyone, this is something new:
The Fly Trap

CLICK THIS: if you are a spambot


I was surfing the net for some QB64 lessons/forum/the latest verson for QB64 (Mine is quite old:v085)
and I stumbled upon this.

Thanks and Regards

is there a way of using functions recursively as apparently def fn ... does not allow this?

Hello.  I have a QBasic program that takes no user input at all - it simply reads a file line by line, does some string manipulation, and writes the output to a second file.  I would like to be able to run this program from a Windows 7 batch (.bat) file, without any manual intervention at all.  Will QB64 allow this, and would I have to make any changes to my QBasic program? It is a very simple program that doesn't used any "advanced" features of later BASIC versions.

Extra question:  In the file I am reading, part of a string is a date in the format YYYYMMDD (e.g. 20140624).  Is there any easy way to convert this to a long integer that represents the number of days since some specifc date in the past (for example a Julian date or Unix timestamp)?  I don't really care what the base date is, it just needs to be a count of days since some fixed date.  Then I can use that to determine the day of the week, which is what I really need (but as a number, not as a string, in other words 5 or 6 rather than "Fri" or "Friday").

Hi Phil,

I know this is an old post I'm responding to, But I just wanted to share with, I started programming over 30 years also on the TRS-80 Model I.

Hello Bobby,

I'm also new to this forum, just joined today. I am a member at QB64.net and it took a little while for them to get back to me also.

I would like to welcome you to computer programming in BASIC. I started learning BASIC programming in high school over 30 years ago. Most of what I know, I taught myself. I stated of learning BASIC on TRS-80s, Commodore 64, Apple II+ and the IBM PC. I partial to the TRS-80 computers.

Back in my early days of programming, my first computers I worked with did not have 3D Graphics capabilities. If fact, they didn't even have Hi Resolution Graphics. I used ASCII character set to make my graphics.

I won't me much help to you with 3D Graphics, but if you need help making board games, let me know.

Hi, I'm Donald. I've been working with QB64 a few months now and rewriting some of my games I wrote on the Tandy 2000 computer in GW-BASIC over 25 years ago. I'll post some of my completed games.

I need a little help on a program I've got almost complete. I show 20 or so variables on the screen and a graphical output based on them. I want to be able to move the mouse over a variable and use the scroll wheel to increase or decrease the number by one. Can someone help me with a simple subroutine to show a number on the screen inside a box and if you are inside the box you can scroll the number up or down? I've been trying and researching commands but can't quite figure it out. This is not a school assignment nor a profitable program...merely for my own personal use. I'm also working with line numbers as that is what I learned waaaay back in school.

This code, opening a data file in line 9010, returning to the main program to get a record # R, and then collecting data in line 9020, works perfectly in GWBasic but not in QB64.   The values C,S,SG,DY returned are all zero in QB64.

I have change the open statement to:

OPEN "Moneyrec.dat" for random as #1 Len=32
but no improvement.

Any help is appreciated.   Thanks.

9010 OPEN "R", #1, "MONEYREC.DAT", 32: FIELD #1, 8 AS C$, 8 AS S$, 8 AS SG$, 8 AS DY$: LOR = LOF(1) / 32: RETURN

9020 GET #1, R: C = CVD(C$): S = CVD(S$): SG = CVD(SG$): DY = CVD(DY$): RETURN
