 MO> Does anyone know why QuickBASIC (and the interpreter) chokes on the CALL
 MO> ABSOLUTE () command? It seems every time I try to compile a program with
 MO> this command in it, I get a 'sub not found error' (#36 I believe). I
 MO> have also heard that there is an $INCLUDE file or .OBJ file that will
 MO> allow this to be done. I have the following routine:

  First, you must load QB with QB.QLB, which contains the ABSOLUTE routine.
Then, either you must declare it yourself, or $INCLUDE the file QB.BI.
Both files come with QuickBASIC.  When compiling, use QB.LIB.

 MO> Introductory Kit.)
