Locate illegal function call, help

by (no login)

 

Hello guys

When I try a simple code like:

CLS
LOCATE 40, 1: print "hello"

It gives me a illegal function call error when I run it. I understand that the problem is on the number 40, but, what if I want to display a lot of information on multiple lines the exceed the number of 40? is it impossible on Qbasic? (Having a scroll bar would be awesome u.u for example)

thanks
