Yea. Some of my DOORS run at 19200. Using qb45. Never saw them
run faster! Whats the secret? I don't use qbser or add on library. Just
straight qb code from CATPATCH.BAS part of it goes like this:

 IF baud = 2400 then
  bp$ = "2400"
' (cut out for shortness)
 IF baud = 19200 then
  bp$ = "19200"

'baud is the baud rate passed from the bbs dropfile

'  maybe i could just add:

  IF baud = 38400 then
   bp$ = "38400"
  IF baud = 76800 then
   bp$ = ""76800"
  ' ETC up to 14,400

 open com1 + ":" + bp$ + par$ for random as #3

"Whad du ya think?"
I'm not to familiar with POKE, PEEK, INTERUPTS, ETC


For anyone else writing a door (or for outputing over the modem) that
doesn't want to spend the $$$ then i would recommend CATPATCH (uses
CALLINFO.BBS) or the new DPATCH (uses door.sys). Its FREE! Complete
source is included. (thats all there is,  QB code!). I have modified
this code and i am a beginner. Works like a charm!. I bet someone could
modify it even for ANSI music(over the modem).....(G)   any takers????

Well, anyway call Jim Brewers BBS (GULF COAST BBS)and you can get these
bas files ( i believe they are CATPATCH.ZIP and DPATCH.ZIP). He says he
doesn't support it anymore but they are there for DLD. (Thanks JIM!)

QB does go to 19200! ..... maybe more!
