Quick-Basic running in a Visual Basic compilation?
I have a program, developed in Quick Basic under DOS, which are quite
complicated and I wish to translate into Visual Basic, since Basic is more
familiar for me than other languages.
The question is how to write Quick Basic code in a Visual Basic program. It
handles I/O commands and direct access to memory addresses for a A/D card.
I have to say that this program works fine in a DOS window under Win98, but
it's not the case for W2000/XP.
Any comment will be highly appreciated.

Missed it by _THIS MUCH_...
Due to overwhelming demand, supplies of the complimentary Not For Resale
copies of Visual Basic .NET 2003 Standard Edition* are now exhausted.
Just got mine today.
The cheapest one is the cheapest one you find at a garage sale, swapmeet

Every language has his (dis)advantages. The ones you mention are all
wrappers around the Win32 API.
VO is a very nice and easy language compared to VC. Data-access is famous
with VO, but also memorymanagement, the cargage collector, ragged array's.
and the result is fast and reliable code. You do not have to declare every
variable if you do not want to. (but you will)
Comparing to VB is VO a real OOP langangue where VB is not. You can wri...GW BASIC to Visual Basic
I had done programnming in GW BASIC and Assembly 10 years back, when I
was in school. Later, I learnt C,C++, Core Java and COBOL. Will my
knowledge of BASIC hold me in good stead while learning Visual Basic?
Is there a resemblance between the two?

i have a fortran compiled executable that generates an output txt file.
It runs absolutely fine when run from dos..
I need to call the executable from an excel macro written in Visual
I do this using shell command. The shell command returns a number
(probably task sequence) which proves that the fortran exe is executed
but output file is not generated.
Can anyone please help me with it... quick response will be highly

This group is for standard C++ language only. Compilers, Vb,
spreadsheets, MFC are not part of the C++ standard and therefore most of
the people don't know anything about them.

nope... different product.
If your looking to learn VB6 the cheapest solution is to go to a

I''m not a programmer and don''t have much knowledge of Basic. But I
have a question about compiling Visual Basic code.
For a program that is used in our company, it is important to know
that the version that is used, is the same version that was tested in
the first place. People who know (.) tell me, that the Visual Basic
compiler generates a different code every time the original code is
compiled. On different computers but even on the same computer.
They tell me that there are hundreds of differences in the generated
programm and a crc check comes with different resu...Calling a Labview compiled VI from Visual Basic
Hi, I am trying to call a VI from VB6 through activex (Labview 7.0 Type
Library). Indeed, I successfully did it in a computer with labview
development system installed. However, apparently, I am not going to
distribute the labview development system with my VI EXE and VB6 EXE. I
am just wondering if this mechanism would still work under a computer
with only labview runtime installed.
Any help or suggestion on new approach is apprepriated.
...How to compile ml-yacc and ml-lex programs with mlton ?
I've written a parser (named check_parser)with ml-yacc and ml-lex tools,
and compiled it with sml-full-cm tool from SML/NJ successfully.
Now I need this parser to be compiled with MLTON compiler :
I use a Makefile, containing the entry :
check_parser.grm.sml : check_parser.grm check_parser.lex
(echo "Generating the parser"; \
$(ML_YACC) check_parser.grm; \
$(ML_LEX) check_parser.lex); \
where $(ML_YACC), $(ML_LEX) and $(SML) are respectively paths to ml-yacc,
ml-lex and sml binaries. ...[Q]Lex & Yacc script for C compiler

Almost everybody in this newsgroup is using VB6 or lower. While you may
get a stray answer to VB.NET questions here, you should ask them in

Uh... *any* .exe? No.
To go from machine code to a high-level language is a multi-step
process, and unless you want your HLL to be assembly, it *requires*
human interaction and a good knowledge of assembly programming. (An in-
