About the PRINT + control characters...

This is no big deal to me, but thought you should know about it.

Sometimes PRINT CHR$(7) WILL produce the bell sound here, and sometimes not.

For example, the following code:

for t = 1 to 5
print chr$(7), t
sleep 1

I never hear more than 4 bells, sometimes 3, never 5. And always bell 1 is silent. (This is on my w2k machine).

By the way, Great Qbasic combatability so far! My Binary file viewer compiles and works perfect in QB64. It uses DEF SEG/POKE instead of PRINT to show the characters on the screen in SCREEN 0.
