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

        You  must  load  the  QB.QLB  quick  library  with the command line
parameter /L.  Or you  must specify  the QB.LIB  library when  linking your
object file. For instance:
        QB TEST.BAS /L QB
        BC TEST;
        LINK TEST,,,QB;

        You don't really nead to include the file QB.BI.
