33073Re: [libertybasic] transcribing GWBasic "Chain" etc commands
- Feb 1, 2007Alan,
LB doesn't have a precise CHAIN command, but it does allow up to 70
megabytes of program code and data space -- far larger than old GW BASIC
could ever command.
It's very likely that you could rewrite your program with minimal effort
to use the old modules as subroutines off a main calling program, and
just use a CALL or GOSUB statement to invoke the different subprograms.
