Now that our series on Basic for Beginners - Basic BASIC by Ray Favre - is at
an end, those who have not read the series may wish to purchase the back
copies of Qercus that include the six parts of Basic BASIC.
The series takes a complete beginner to programming and introduces sufficient
to get you started and producing your own programs.
Examples are listed within the article or in the Yellow Pages feature in the
magazine and these can be typed in by the reader. These listings will also be
available on the Qercus website. Purchasers of the series, who don't have
access to the internet, ...translate from BASIC to REALbasic
I have a short (~50 line) program written in BASIC from years ago, that I'd
like to get up and running in REALBasic. It's just some data entry (24 lines)
then 3 nested For-Next loops and a couple of simple calculations (27 lines). I just
downloaded the REALBasic 10 day demo and tutorial but don't want to
spend the time to plow through it all, learning about windows and such.
It seems that I could just incorporate the math I need to do in
somebody's existing template.
Would anyone be willing to help me to get it up and running quickly?
Then I can test it on the d...Visual Basic and REALbasic
I am told that projects created with VB can be ported to RB with small
effort. I am inheriting a VB project, but I don't know if it is a VB
2003 or a VB 2005 project. I know that there have been some changes in
the 2005 version (VB.net changed only slightly between the 2002 and

news:1141337997.713810....Lang attribute basics
I thought that I couldn't possibly get into trouble with the lang
attribute, but this turned out not to be the case.
I am writing in English, and using the HTML 4.01 DTD, so adding <html
lang="en"> seemed pretty reasonable. Then I though I had better work
out how to make one paragraph another language, just in case. I was
watching StarTrek at the time, so I turned to
where the ISO639.2 says the code for Klingon is tlh
So I thought a new paragraph <p lang="tlh"> would be the right thing. ...Realbasic vs Visual Basic
I'm looking for a cross-platform development tool (particularly Windows
& Linux), having previously worked with Paradox and VB on Windows for
the past 8 years. I've only just started to look at Realbasic and would
like to look at documentation comparing RB to VB, so I can determine
whether RB suits my needs.
Could anyone point me to a site that provides such a comparison? E.g,
what's the equivalent to ADO in RB? Is there a control like the Datagrid
control in VB? Can ActiveX controls be used in RB for Windows? Can I
call the Windows API? etc etc.

Who told you that?
I have redone several VB apps in RB and in each case it required a complete
re-write. RB only offers token support for ActiveX and DLL's.

I agree with Charles. If it is not too big the VB to RB conversion
tool will handle a lot of it. I have converted a couple of small
projects, though all were VB6, a...openoffice
I'm trying to work with the visual basic like language of the web part of
openoffice, it looks a lot like visual basic.
My question is, i'm trying to set focus to a certain textbox, but i can't
get it to work. I used to remember that there was something like that in
the control properties box in vb, like setfocus or something, but not here.
Any tutorials on openoffice about the vb web thingie would be highly
Thanks a bunch.
...Very Basic Basic Problem
Sorry if this comes across too elementry, but I'm having a problem
with this program I have to write for school, and with my back against
the wall I have too throw away my pride and ask for help. I'm pretty
much folowing the textbook's lead here, since I was absence the day
she went over this.
Anyway the problem seems to be with the loop, its an endless loop.
From the READ/DATA statements only the first line 'David Bassett' is
apperaing on the screen. All the formatting (Page name, heading etc)
seems to be coming up as planned.
Again with a few alterations, ...MS BASIC, Sinclair BASIC, STOS BASIC: derivatives comparison?
I see that there're a number of derivatives of MS BASIC,
Sinclair BASIC, and STOS BASIC still in active development
(e. g.: QB64, MMBasic; BASin; sdlBasic.) And, as it seems,
there's a renewed interest in smaller, "BASIC-as-an-OS"
computers (check, e. g., Maximite  and its derivatives.)
I wonder if there's a good comparison of their respective
features? I'm especially interested in any of them being
compared to either Beta BASIC (a Sinclair BASIC derivative,
presumably no longer in development), or its derivatives
(SAM BASIC, MasterBASIC.)
...REALbasic more crack-resistant than Visual Basic?
I've been writing shareware for years; I've noticed my Visual Basic
(Windows) apps were cracked within weeks. Yet my best-selling program,
written in REALbasic for both Mac and Windows, hasn't been cracked
yet. Even tho' the algorithm is pretty much the same for both the
REALbasic and Visual Basic programs.
So is REALbasic more crack-resistant than Visual Basic? Have others
found this to be true?

What was the reason to introduce a new attribute "xml:lang"
instead of "lang"? This bothers both authors and browsers
in different language versions: HTML 4, XHTML 1.0, XHTML 1.1.
HTML has only "lang"; XHTML 1.1 has only "xml:lang";
XHTML 1.0 has both!
For example, Mozilla 1.7 recognizes the lang attribute
but it does not recognize the xml:lang attribute.
What do we gain from "xml:lang"?
