Never mind madman411. There's just the two of us now. (Well, at least there's me.)
V'GER II: I added some logic to allow up to 99 Stories. It also remembers which Stories are highlighted. And has an easier way to select Stories (the arrow keys).
Anyway, I stuck in a primitive substitute for INPUT. See
FUNCTION GetField$ (r%, c%, l%)
GetField$ is already much more that the user needs, but it far less that our esthetics will permit. Feel encouraged to replace this with your version and also to put the clock back in.
(I think clocks on QBasic programs are no longer needed as there is a Windows clock always visible. But newbies LOVE to see that animation!!)
You will note the program is fairly complex compared to what is needed to do the same exact thing, but it was an experiment in flexibility. I can swap fields around, change screen format, etc. pretty easily.
