    I read a message from Mark Butler to you about combining QB.QLB &
FADE.QLB into one .QLB. It's possible!

    Lets say you want to use the "Call Interrupt" or "Call InterruptX"
functions from QB.QLB. With a small utility provided with Borland's
Turbo Debugger, I found that the name of the .OBJ file for these
functions is "intrpt.obj". So go to LIB utility that came with QB and
LIB <enter>
for the library prompt, enter QB.LIB <enter>
for the operations prompt, enter *intrpt.obj <enter>
for the listing prompt, enter nothing

This should write out the object file for the call interrupt function.
Now to make a new QLB, use:

link /q fade+intrpt,newqlb.qlb,,bqlb45.lib

If you need some other function which is in QB.QLB, then tell me what it
is and I'll give you the correct .obj name. Hope you found some use for
the fade.obj procedure!

(P.S. I just typed this off the top of my head; hope it's correct! :-)
