CL> You asked why I'm not using the CALL INTERRUPT from QuickBasic; >I'd like this library to be usable by those people using QBasic >(bundled with DOS 5.0) since they can't use CALL INTERRUPT. >However, a .LIB can be BLOADed with this version, and so the >library routines are still callable. CL>Thanks... CL>Chris Ahh, but there is a way! I have some source (Qbasic) that holds the ASM for CALL INTERRUPT in DATA statements which is then stuck into an array to be initiated by CALL ABSOULUTE. If you want it, send a disk (3-1/2 is best),a $.52 SASE and a note describing what you need. (code would bore ASM people here).
