OM>Hi there All,

OM>My question is quite simple and specific: How can one execute a compiled
OM>QuickBasic program and keep the screen mode that was in it?

OM>Here's my terrific program: :-)
OM>PRINT "Screen Mode Changed"

        try this.:

                screenmode = peek(&h49)

        The number of the initial screen mode will be in screen mode.
        I'm not sure if it gives the QB screen Mode no. But it gives the
        int 010h moden no.  (If you have Ralf Brown's interlist a list
        of them is in there under int 10 / mode 0)
