The underscore is under appreciated in the QB IDE...

Those of us who have tried it now see that the QB IDE sees an underscored statement as meaning attach the next line:

So...

IF ThisWorks THEN ImAMonkeysUncle = -1
SCREEN _LOADIMAGE("qb64logo.png",32)
PRINT "I'm a QB IDE and all your underscores belong to me!"
SYSTEM

Becomes this when loaded into the QB IDE:

IF ThisWorks THEN ImAMonkeysUncle = -1
SCREEN _LOADIMAGE("qb64logo.png",32)
PRINT "I'm a QB IDE and all your underscores belong to me!"
SYSTEM

---------------------

Of course if the line "SCREEN" STARTED with an underscore, it would work, but placing the underscore portion past the beginning of the QB64 statement is apparently a big Bozo no no as far as the intended function goes.

This is still a good idea in theory, it just needs some tweaking and since the genie is out of the bottle, it should probably be considered a priority matter.
