designed from the ground up to be cross platform. The XBasic people don't
advise a direct conversion of QuickBasic programs, expecially by a newbie to
their compiler, but they do provide some help on how to do it if you're
determined. I take to mean it's smarter to convert the programmers skill-set
than the code itself.
Struggling with VB and particularly Help engine is reminding me of why I
don't like Microsoft products. Excuse my brief OffTopic here, but the VB
Help files for VisualBasic are interspersed with several other languages like
VisualJava, FoxPro, and VisualC/C++. When I restrict my help searches to
just VisualBasic documentation, I can see links to what I need but they are
grayed out until I remove the restriction and search for the name of the
formerly grayed out link. The answers are there but SHEESH what a pain.
