Would anyone happen to have access to or know how to patch
QuickBASIC Compiler v4.50's DTR "Bug"? The PATCH87.EXE wont do it,
and it makes it virtually impossible to write decent Stand_Alone
Door programs... I have an example here of a DTR_Patch for v1.0
I'm looking for something similar. If anyone can help, I'd greatly
appreciate it!

Here's that example:
DTR Patch for the QuickBASIC Version 3.0 Compiler
