About the PRINT + control characters...by Dav (no login)
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
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.
